Question How to choose Wheels?

How did you decide? You can't tell until they are on. I'm targeting staggered 19s but am being told by tire rack that is aggressive. What does that mean to me. Where can I get more info about my options?

At least one of the online tire dealers has a way to show you how tires will look on your car. I remember doing that when I was considering some snow tire/wheel packages they had. I thought it was Tire Rack but I could be mistaken. You can also check the BW forum sponsor site (Discount Tire Direct).

p.s. Agressive to me means that staggered 19s are too much wheel/tire for the car. Will those fit without modifying the fenders? They might mean that too (body modifications)
