    20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    For those lookin to put rims on their ATS, I wanted to put up picks showing how they look with 20's and the gaps you have without dropping the car.

    Ofcourse waiting for a drop kit...

    I like what you did to the front of the car. Is that actual paint or a temp coating of some kind? By the way I am surprised 20's fit. I have the premium with 18's and I don't see much if any room for 20's. I was actually thinking 19's. good info, thanks for the pics.

    It's actually a wrap I did upfront. I didn't want to mess with the paint and incase it didn't come out how I visioned it in my head I can always peel it out.

    And the 20's are not bad I know they get a bad rap but they are comfortable and give me a good ride.

    Thanks!

    Size of the wheels has nothing to do with gap. It's putting tires too tall or too small that affect. Anything else is an optical illusion...

    Actually if you want to get technical, tire size has a direct impact on wheel gap because of the overall diameter. Ex. 225/55/17 is 26.74" and a 235/35/20 tire is actually less, at 26.48"....so unfortunately since most factory tires are so tall, you either have the same overall diameter with large rims & small tires...or sometimes less. Illusion? Eh, I guess I see your point.

    Anyways, I simply wanted to know the rim size/offset and tire sizes because I think his car looks good even at stock ride height, so I wanted a point of reference.

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    I'm putting 20's on mine also. From the pics you have I see the tires are 235/30/20 right? I ordered 245/30/20 tires. Are your rims 8 or 8.5? I'm hoping the tires have enough room. Chart says 235/30/20 is 25.3 inches diameter and 245/30/20 is 25.8 inches. From your pics IT LOOKS LIKE MINE WILL FIT. Do you get any rubbing or did you have to modify anything? Thanks

    Truthfully I don't know the exact offset. They are old rims that happened to have 5x115 bolt pattern. I think it is a 40 offset. They were bought for my jeep wrangler years ago. they have been in the garage sitting. When my tires get here next week I will get them mounted and I'll put them on. I'll take pics then. My rims will stick out some. So I'm not sure right now how much suspention travel there will be. If they rub due to that then I will modify some things. You can see my thread on 20inch gold copper rims. I should have gotten 235/30/20 tires to be safe. I got 245/30/20. But I will make them work.I'll keep you posted and get pics.

    ----------

    Can't wait to get my 20's on and stop rolling with these 17inch donuts. People don't like 20's but they need to realize that high end cars now don't come with less than 20inch rims. To me the smallest rim on this car should be an 18. Then on through 20 for an upgrade. Tony's rims are an example of what the rims should look like. If I want donuts I'll go to the bakery. But to each their own.

    I have been checking out their website, there are a few styles that I like but wasn't sure if any were made to fit the ATS yet. Also like some of the TSWs. Does either have the correct off set and bolt pattern yet? I want to stick with the staggered look.

    People always say you can't do it. It won't fit. It looks stupid, It's cheezy. Whatever they do. They do. I do me.
