Pulled the trigger on a set of 20" Vossen VVS-CV1's in machined and black. Car is lowered with D3 springs, minus an extra quarter link in the front. I'll post better pictures soon. Opinions?

Very cool. I'm working on getting 20's for mine as well. What size tires did you wind up with? I'm looking at Pirelli PZero 255/35X20 for the fronts & 285/35X20 for the rear.The problem w/the stock tires is the rear tire has a marginally smaller OD than the fronts!!! The original concept/showcar had 20's on the front & 21's in the rear.Helped mitigate the rear quarter panel size.

I think the best tire for the rear is 305/30/20 Pirelli PZero

Thanks ,that's a size i hadn't considered. The OD of the 285/35 is 27.85" & the OD of the 305/30 is 27.2". I wanted a slightly larger OD for the rears. The 30 series tires may be a suicide mission for the wheels on Michigan roads :). I also need to check the effect on the speedometer as well. Thanks.

I went with 255/35X20 for the front and 285/30X20 in the rear. The rear rims are 10.5" wide. Looks like a proper beast now.

Looks AWESOME!! First order of business on the coupe is to REPLACE THOSE BACK WHEELS (IMHO), OE's look too small, tucked in.

Great job....!
