You should probably stick with 19s. The 20s just look too disproportioned.

I guess it really doesn’t matter what looks proportioned to the vehicle or what looks good as long as there 20’s. I some times think 19’s look to big.

LMao we cant use that car as an example, plus, 20x8 that is going to look kinda retarded. IMHO tooooo narrow for a 20. I have 265's in the back and wish it was wider.

I was thinking about 20" without lowering the car, would that be a problem?
would 19" look funny without drop?
