GT & GT-P MKII to come with 19" wheels

I've been told that the GT and GT-P MKII will come out with 19" wheels standard.
I've also heard this from other sources too.

Jase!

I don't think standard 19's are a good idea. As an option sure, but not standard. You'd have to re-mortgage your house to be abe to afford new tyres and heaven forbid if you actually damaged a wheel!

Let buyers make the choice I say.

Caught up? I think 19's are bloody overkill. Who cares what size rims HSV or anyone else have.

Im soo sick of people wanting bigger rims. Whats next 20's on the GTHO? When is it going to stop.

18's are big enough. Like 3Toed said imagine the tyre bill!

Re: BA GT/GTP MARK II to get 19's

18"s are a good size, and yes the tyres are expensive. However I would like to see wider rears (265's?) on the GT's. So that would mean 18"x8.5" alloys.
