20 inch rims?

Is it possible to fit 20's on a c230 kompressor without any modifications? I was talking to someone and he said his vehicle had stock suspension and it has 20 inch chrome wheels with thin-series tires. Anyone have thoughts or know from experience?? Is it possible to fit a type of wheel this size and if so, how wide would be just right?

Not really sure.... what I know are 19s on 235 35 tires. These would fit without mods required.

I'm not a big fan of the Big Rims but I think 20s will be a bit too big... I'd stay under 19s. but you can always try.

well if you hit a pothole it isn't the same as when riding on 15 / 17 inch rims but it is tolerable. the chick is some random brabus girl lol.. and the place is a tunnel, doesn't serve much purpose just links up two ends of the city!

hmmmm.....
actually, the ride is fine. whether ur on 17's or 20's, u gotta avoid potholes and stuff. nevertheless, tyres are always gonna cost a lot. camber kits already installed. jus make sure u rotate left to right every 5000km's or so.

the pic u see is still with the car on #5 pads in front and #4 pads at the rear.
#1's ordered, and goin in soon.

happy modding guys!!!!
keep ur ride sweet, and a sweety will always wana ride!!!
