    I dont think anyone has 19" on a City!
    But people do put giant wheels on their cars, often by increasing their height.

    But dude - a general rule for replacing tyres is stay within 3% +/- of the original diameter. I think City 03 came with 13" rims, stay on 13s, or get low profile 14s.

    Id recommend keeping them until you get a car suited for 17". Otherwise sell them (if you need the money) and get decent 13 or 14"ers

    @Drug
    Theres also such a thing as "different sized tyres"

    Theres a reasonably big difference between 215/45/17 & 205/40/17.

    In fact, 205/40 is 1.16" shorter! That could sovle the problem!

    The other thing is if you increase the height of the car, and then install bumper extensions and side skirts, it looks like the car is really low...

    @Dark
    Bro I got no idea. I dont even know if this size is even available But even if its not, just search for 17" tyres with lowest profile. And remember, the profile is a percentage of the total width, so if the total width is less and the profile number is the same (like 225/40 vs 205/40), the 205/40 will be much shorter.

    Good luck!

    my friend put 17's on his city,.. had to change his shocks and bushes at 14000km!!!

    he's now on 15's.

    don't go for anythign over 15 inch as there are NO advantages, only a harsh ride, poor economy etc. remember, function over fashion, not the other way round.

    a friend had that exact size on his 05 city idsi.. messed up suspension and gave 0 comfort... the only advantage was stability... but there was no need of such stability...
