The meat IN the rims? Or on the rims? They're growing on me. I might try some 18s next year, we'll see though.

How does the 19" wheels affect the speedometer reading?

It actually corrects it, lol. Every VW I've owned has read 5mph over its actual speed (so when it says I'm doing 75, I'm only doing about 70). With the 19s and 235 35s, it's actually almost spot on (still slightly over). GPS verified.

I notice that 5 mph thing on mine too. What GPS device do you use? I looked around my iPhone for an app but didn't come up with anything.

An app called NavFree, and also driving past speed signs has verified it too (the ones that tell you how fast you're going and flash at you when you need to slow down).

Do you have to remove the wheel to adjust the coil-over height?

Rears yes, front you can without removing the wheel, but it's easier to just take it off.

Thanks for the tip about the NavFree app, I used it this weekend and it works good. I paid the $2 to remove the adverts. My car's speedo is 3 mph faster than actual speed.
