visually and in the dry,

18" is good compromise.

I have 18'' in my beast, never tried 19'' though. When I have used 17 I didn't feel nearly as much comfortable as with 18'', but it also depends on car.

I find 17 most comfort and quiet

20 most suave lol

18 and 19 is neither here or there lol
Dont get confused between my personality & my attitude...

My personality is who I am...

My attitude depends on who you are...

The thicker the rims, the harder the ride as your tyres are thinner.

 

I find the sweet spot usually at 18". Quite fierce but also not too thin and bumpy lol.
