I'm in Manotick, so probably not that far from you. Out here, 19s would be fine in the winter - the worst potholes are in the city itself.Yeah, I was in a situation where I had to toss winter onto the stock rims because I got the car right off the truck (I didn't order the car, just took someone's order since they backed out) Worked out though because I wanted to get some black wheels and they couldn't get a OEM set in black. I'm only like a hour+ south of Ottawa. Had no issues with the heavy snowfalls this past winter, but 18s would be great for a bit of more meat for the potholes.
I'm excited to get my summers on with the black rims and see how it looks, I'll post some pics up when I get them on, tires should be in next week, then just gotta get them balanced and mounted.
