They are 19x8.5, I was thinking about powdercoating them black.

i would leave the way they are.
i had reps 2yrs ago in 19 running 235/35/19 tires and ill tell you if you roads are anything like they are in NYC then don't do it to yourself.

you will either blow tires or bend the rim weekly

sick wheels but they are to big. Ive seen them on a b5 but i dont think you should powdercoat them..if anything the inside and not the face

I remember seeing a black b5 that had those here on the board awhile back. It sat alot lower than the one posted above and looked sick as fuck.
