    You'll get a harsher ride too. I went from the 21 to a 19 on a WG and there was a noticable difference.

    I have a 21" wheel on my 09 SG w/abs and the only significant difference that I feel is lighter steering. The ride is not harsher. It does seem to drift a little bit to the left, but I'm not sure if its because the drive train is on the left side and the front end a little higher with the bigger wheel. But other than that, there are no ill effects and it still rides great!

    This is true, I recently changed to a 408F from the original 407F and the grove effects are way less and it is quiet FYI.
