19's vs 18's

Now, I have been told putting on 19's on the beast would basically mean replacing my tires every 10000 kms. Is this true? I just bought new 18 inch rims, and love them, but I see alot of cars with larger wheels, and I gotta say, I LIKE IT.

I do drive my car about 20000 kms per year, but I can't afford to go through two sets of tires every year.

Your thoughts?

I agree, using a 19" wheel vs an 18" wheel should not make any difference in tire wear. Maybe since tires for the 19" size wheel are generally more aggressive, i.e., softer rubber compound, and wear faster than "normal" tires, that's why some people think that it's the wheel size.
