Now that Retro and M70 are gone, changing wheel size for cT to 19' is a great news. No more dealing with two different sizes. Good for the factory.

The old wheel can always be shuffled and kept for warranty replacement, whereas the new ones making a 2020 news while they were supplied on 2019 is interesting.

My 2019 GU has aluminum wheels from Italcerchio S.R.L., no doubt exactly the same as on the 2020 Urals, according to m dealer.
What is the date stamp on your wheels? My custom ordered 2019 GU arrived last month with a date stamp of 10/18 on the wheels.
22/19, which I can only guess means week 22 of 2019...
Week 22 would be around the middle of May. When did they make your 2019?

I've been checking out the Heindl walk around videos for the 2019 GU's on Youtube. I've found date stamps of 08/18 and 10/18 from the most current videos of the 2019's.
My 2019 was made Aug 23,2019. I took delivery Oct 11th

*Outsourced forged brake calipers brackets replace original welded brackets made in-house

I have noticed too that they have installed the new forged brake calipers on my 2019. The earlier 2019 builds have the extra mounting bolts.

The no price increase rumor for the 2020's is also not true. The 2020 CT and GU went up by $550.00 to $15,549 and $17,549 now.

Much bigger price jump for the Canadians ... up $2,500 CAD to $19,999 CAD and $21,999 CAD.

Is the battery new?
Battery: FAYTX20HL (12V, 20Amp/h)
I feel like my 2011 was a different model.

IMWA has a history of rolling out changes, not necessarily on the model year.

Eliminating the 18" wheel would be a surprise to me as certain folks in Redmond have a preference for the 18" size.

It'd be interesting to know if three 19" wheels could be factory-fitted to a cT sans any modifications...in the event that elimination of the 18" wheels ever comes to pass.

No dog in this fight; just curious.

It's only an extra half inch in the fenders, can't see why not.

Exactly my guess. I was only curious about the sidecar fitment. The pusher and in particular the steer tire should be plug-and-play.
