Got the 20 inch rims from Forged Collection, they are 9x20 (front) and 10.5x20 (rear). I ended up going with the PS2's again, I only drive the car when it's nice out and on weekends, so I don't foresee myself going through tires that quickly. I ended up going with 245-30-20 (front), 285-25-20 (rear). The ride is definitely a little stiffer. Hopefully the images came out alright, having issues sizing and being able to post them.
Also just wanted to thank Forged Collection for the wheels and timely service, Shawn

they look a lot like the HRE 790R wheels.

They are brushed with a chrome lip. It took 5 days from when the money cleared through paypal until they were sitting on my doorstep. They are similar to the HRE's, I was looking at the M40's but went with these instead.

Those are so sweet. Now you really must lower and level out that ride (do so correctly) maybe an inch or so...not talking slammed but definelty lowered. IMHO it sits way too high in stock form, thus taking away from the exceptional wheel choice. Let's face it American build great muscle cars at a great price but man do they sit awfully high. Trucks included in this observation as well.

I agree with you about lowering it, I just want to make sure I do it right. Waiting for someone to come out with a kit specifically for the 09 V.

Are those the right dimensions for 20"'s so no issues with speedometer etc? Moreover, can you go wider in than 285's / 10.5" rears?

According to the tire sizes he listed, his overall diameter is smaller which is going to through his speedo off about 5 mph. He put 25 series on the back when he should have used 30's. But to each his own. I initially had 295's on my 10.5 rims but they rubbed the fender only on big bumps but I didn't like it. Went back down to 285's and problem solved. if the rim was in the fender an additional .25 inches, there would be no problem however.

I'm going to recalibrate the car so my speedometer will not be off.- Shawn

Is there a reason you went for 25 series in the back as opposed to something with a little more sidewall? Seems like an odd size, and certainly might account for some additional bumpiness.

Strictly cosmetic, I like the look with a little less sidewall. -Shawn
