bigger wheels?

Can anyone help me?

I got an '06 WRX to which I want to fit big rims to. I'm looking to fit 19s on, however the alloys which I want, Lenso LS21 are only available in 18 or 20inch fitment.

If I was to go for the 20s, will they fit on without any problems?

If you read any of the 'boys mag's' like max power and so on, they say that if you go 2inches bigger on the wheel than the standard, you'll lose the handling.. So with mine, I've gone to 18's as I had 16's standard.

I dont like having huge wheels, the cost of the tyres would be stupid money to replace...

hmmmmm dave bites his lip for fear of upsetting someone-20`s 18`s would be my absolute limit,or if it were that important to have massive rims i wouldnt buy a scooby.

The 18's I have are expensive enough!! the fear of putting on 19's or 20's would just kill me!!

will say this my cars lowered 40mm with 18`s on cant fit wider rims than 7.5in which even rules out a lot of decent lookin wheels for me because of arch clearance, wouldnt consider raising the ride height as the handlings mint compared to std and in my opinion big rims with a high ride height dont look right anyway.(lower it mate on 18`s-u know it makes sense)

Are they very expensive mate and are they a pain in the butt to fit and to get to work?
