Hey fellow members.... I just ordered my 20" wheels.. I didn't wanna do the 22's and go with rubberbands. But now I'm stuck with what kind of suspension to put it on without sacrificing the ride n comfort... Anyways, I'd be great if i could get some input and any side photos of your rides... THanks...

Here's my car with 20's (255/35 and 295/30):


And here it is with 21's (255/30 and 295/25):


22's on our cars are ridiculous, 20's are nice, you can still get plenty of rubber but 21 is just right IMO

I went through 4 different sets of wheels before I settled with my current set of P40 Monoblocs in brushed aluminum finish.

21" Hartge Classic II - gorgeous wheels but way too heavy
20" Hartge Classic II reps - love the charcoal grey look against the Silverstone, but they were junk wheels
20" Breyton Vision - also gorgeous wheels but even heavier than the 21" Hartges
20" HRE P40 Monoblocs - super light, wicked light, now I want them in charcoal!!!

I have stock EDC, but reinforced with the stiffest freakin' swaybars on the planet - RD Sport and Dinan strut braces. Still pondering on dropping the car, I've had a set of lowering springs sitting in my garage for almost a year - I have issues. If and when the EDC fails, there's a bunch of options for replacement. I love the adjustability of EDC.

By no means are the pics meant to be porn pics like the others posted on this thread. Those pics are dead sexy.

what series tires are you running on the 20"wheels

Front: 255/35/20
Rears: 285/30/20

I have a few thousand miles left of tread on the rears. When its time to change, for sure going up to 295/30/20 PS2s. I would love to 305 but I'm afraid of the rubbing. And besides, I haven't found any 305/30/20 PS2s anywhere, they prolly don't make the size.

20" Hartge Classic II's on H&R's. EDC works perfect.
Sport mode = Harsh ride on bumpy roads.
Normal mode = Tolerable ride on bumpy roads.
Comfort mode = Good ride on bumpy roads.

I run in sport mode most of the time, which is perfect if the road is.

You have a worse case of wheel tourettes than I have Jed. The wheels you saw on my ride are just temporary until my other one's are done. Im changing the lips out and possibly re-powdercoating the center pieces.

Im running KW coilovers with 295/25/20" now currently on a 10" wide rear. The same size tire can also fit on my 12" wide rims.

I'll post some pics later.
