    Anyone with 20 inch rims? - need advice!

    I just found out that it's at least another month before a set of 18 inch, CHROME PLATED stock rims will come my way. However, the tire guy found a killer set of 20 inch aftermarket chrome rims. I'm hesitant to go with the 20 inch. Anyone here have 20's, and if so, how's the handling, speed, etc...... Major or minor change to the car?

    Re: Anyone with 20 inch rims? - need advice!

    i got 19's and their alittle bumpy. 20' will be worse...that i know..its not for everybody, some people just want the sickest looking ride and dont care about the ride... i think the ride on 20', would be crap..just my 2 cents..

    rolling on 20s... with 35 tires...
    Not a bad ride at all... not bumpy beyond any sports car feel...
    i have stock shocks / springs... ride is real comfortable...
    no problems to note of except driving carefully to avoid pot holes.
    go with 20s!!! you wont regret it!

    Riding on 20's with a 8.5in fronts and 10in rears. I bought them and was given the advice to use 285/25 in the rear and 245/30 in the front to prevent rubbing. The ride is about where the stock runflats were, maybe slightly more firm. In hindsight (as I'm probably not going to lower the vehicle) I would go with a diameter closer to stock (275/30 on the rear) as I have quite a bit of space between the control arm and tire. Here's a pic of my brother autocrossing this weekend on my expensive tires

    Thanks! Got it from the dealer like that, but was informed it was a certain kind of aftermarket on this forum. Don't know from where, I thought is was a factory spoiler.

    I feel like I took a performance hit putting 19's on my GTO and they aren't heavy 19's by any means. I think 18's are the sweet spot for performance and I wouldn't even consider 20's on my V unless I was going for looks only.

    I believe that is the specter spoiler. If it is $395 plus shipping. I just bought one. Believe there running a special.
