    It's going to look like a suv on stock springs with 19s still but it will help close the wheel gap slightly, I think 19s are ideal for the 6.

    Spelling and basic grammar will help you no end, this is not text messaging, you can use more than 160 characters.

    Try using Tapatalk for starters. If your using an iPhail, it will spell check for you.

    A few members here have 19's, looks great. Firmer ride I'd guess, but suits the car.

    Tapatalk doesn't have a character limit (as far as I know), either way, I trust you will correct your original post at your first opportunity.

    Unfortunately you've bumped into Matt who, like myself, has an aversion to all "speak" other than The Kings English. Do not take it personally, just realise this is a forum of all age groups, the vast majority of which probably never used SMS as a teenager.. So bearing in mind your audience, you might want to pay attention and phrase your queries appropriately.

    To address your question, the forum search feature will find you many an MPS with after market rims. You'll no doubt discover that 18's or 19's your car already needs "moar low!"

    I am fluent in SMS speak, but I also don't see the need, or place for it on this forum with unlimited character input, I like to read words in plain English without the need to decipher lazy text input, although I am curious as to how many of these SMS generation teenagers have ever submitted an English essay, or done their HSC in SMS speak.

    Besides it in the rules, under section 2

    Correct me if im wrong but its not going to matter whether you go for 18's or 19's
    18's will have more profile on the tyre and 19's will have less

    Scrappage .... ive got my car lowered and havent had any drama's, its my daily, just gotta be mindful

    Have to agree with the English police

    But, in order to answer the question, 19's won't make a difference to ride height, as rolling diameter of tyres will be the same.

    Lower Springs/coilovers will stop the SUV look.

    +1 for correct English.

    I don't think your car will be scrapped if you lower it. Some states have car crushing laws, but these are only enacted if you have seriously broken the law.
    Putting bigger rims than 18's on the 6 is probably unneccesary. But post ideas of what you're thinking. If it was a set of 19x9/ 19x10 BBS LM's, then yes. If they're 19x7 bob jayne specials, then hahahahaha no.
