19" volk te37 sl's are being delivered on Tuesday. Need to figure out what's the widest tire I can run. I'll post pics of those once they come in

It rides a lot harder than stock. Bumps are way harsher but not unacceptable

OP, do you have EDC? If not, it might explain why it feels harsher.

So sounds like folks with swifts + edc can achieve similar ride quality as stock. Where can I pick up a set?

I have them with EDC and the ride is just slightly rougher but after a while you will not even notice. If you're on the fence like I was I say do it. I DIY installed them too and its a fairly easy job.
