I'm curious to know as I plan on doing the same things (lowering/20 inch rims) you already have.
    I have no problems rubbing on turns. I get an occasional rub when cornering hard around a sharp turn or driving fast on the freeway and I go over a dip. As far as the wheel and tire details, I'll get back to you. I don't know the dimesions off hand so I'll look it up and report back.

    Magnaflow Exhaust! And throw in a Volant Cold Air intake. You'll get all that plus it won't set you back as much as a Corsa, in my opinion.

    You dont need to purchase an alignment kit but you do need to get the car aligned asap after installation.

    Check with my boy Sal at Nabers Cadillac in Costa Mesa CA. 800-945-5592. He is in the accessory department. He will know exactly what to get. He did all my mods.

    Hope this helps.
