19" wheels... will they mess up your tranny?

Hey, i was wondering if 19" wheels with a 225/35 tire would mess up my tranny because i had 20's with a 225/35 tire and i don't know if it was the weight or the size but the tranny just gave out on me yesterday. They are 60lbs. a rim so i could be the weight but i found a good deal on some 19's. Let me know because i'm really intrested.

how could 19s be 60 lbs a wheel? I would never put any wheel on a civic over 20 lbs.

oh well that sounds alot better. Alot of members have 19s here.
So anyway:
1. This thread is actually in the wrong section. There is a wheel, tire, and brake section that this should have been posted in. its ok though, a mod will move it.
2. You are going to have to search, or when this gets moved someone with experience in that size will let you know.
3. Please tell me they aren't chrome! lol

Putting a 20" wheel on a civic is stupid in the first place. Also alot of people never think to upgrade the brakes too to help with that wheel.

Thats ok most people upgrade the brakes, and all they get is alot more time before brake fade. Almost no one ever actually buys STRONGER brakes.

i dont think the size of wheels has anything to do with how the transmission shifts

heavier wheels require more torque to turn, and if they get really heavy they cause a huge strain on the transmission. thats the oversimplified version of what happened.

Its been mentioned that after lowering your car and adding wheels, people with automatic transmissions have noticed problems with their tranny...

the odds of it occuring are very rare. You would have to have some heavy wheels for that to happen but to put it simply. My heady a$$ 19's have never NEVER gave me a problem so i dont think you have much to worry about.

yes, because of those huge wheels, i'm betting that's exactly why your tranny went. math goes:

1. wheel weight x 4 (effective rotational mass per cubic pound of material in circular motion) = total rotational mass

2. stock wheels: 14 lbs x 4 = 56 lbs per wheel. 224 lbs total 4 wheels

3. insane 20"s or fukin whatever: 60 lbs x 4 = 240 lbs per wheel. 960 lbs total 4 wheels

you're using the same engine to pull over 4 times the load. a vic tranny is great for lightweight **** but not that kind of wheel. you'll burn trannies up all day long with those kinda rims. you can run up the stairs all day long if you ain't a fatass but stick a stack a books in your arms and you'll be huffin and puffin

i'll bet your acceleration sucks with those big wheels? if so, there ya go.

it wont mess it up but you will have to run a THIN *** tire like a 30 series.

With thin tires, (i had 40 series) i drove over a huge cutout in the road at about 30 mph in the dark. BENT ALL 4 LIPS on my BuddyClub Racing rims. 18" inches in the TRASH now.
