depends on what you are looking for. if it is only cosmetic then 20's usually look better. there is a trade off though in performance. 20's will slightly effect the handling and acceleration negatively.

+1, also on your location.

If you live in locations like downtown SF or LA where there are pot holes every few ft, I would say go with 19s.

19's are 100 percent the way to go. I've looked a tons of pictures and i think the little extra sidewall looks a lot better. not to mention better performance.

I have 20's P40 and to be honest with you I am not an expert or anything but I don't feel the lose in performance. I use my stock 19's sometimes and the only differences are handling (it could be be the tiers) and it is more comfy with the 19's. It is all up to you, what do you prefer?

hope it helps.

Hi. I went with 19's as well. I know Vancouver is not anywhere near as cold as Edmonton, but I think the performance/esthetic quotient would favour the 19" over the 20's. FWIW...
