Looks incredible! But are you sure your 1.4 motor will be powerful enough to roll four R19 rims ?

Lovely looking car and wheels mate.

I fear for you though as Honda only recommend increasing factory wheel size by 1 inch, and you have gone up by 3 haven't you? are you doing anything else?

Man, I really love those wheels. Goes together with the colour of your car very well. Post some pics when they are fitted, please!

Nice choice of colour. Awesome rims. But the 1.4 is gonna be struggling with 19s mate.

Struggle??
Why?
The wheel arches are the same and the engine is easily powerful enough.

It will certainly be able to roll them but reaching 70 mph is gonna be taking ages. Apart from them being way over what Honda suggest you increase the wheel size, the higher ratio and the sheer weight of them will definitely affect performance. No doubt.
