Are the black wheels 18's? They look smaller than the sport wheels.

Better wh/mi with 18”.
How significant is the difference, out of curiosity?

Related question: which tires are you using with the 18s? I presume the 19s still have the stock Contis?

It's a little hard to tell in the picture (maybe easier out of the garage in the sun).

Generally speaking I'm not a big fan of black wheels. My brain is programmed to "clean" my rims removing black brake dust and I've always wanted tires to be as thin as possible thus eliminating the amount of black on the side wall. Put those things together and the concept of black wheels is lost on me. What about adding like a red wheel band? I'm also not the world's biggest fan of those, but on a black wheel I think the pop of color can be very nice.
