Leave the ridiculously oversized wheels for SUVs and large luxury sedans.

I'll never understand why people pay extra for a car with sporting intentions and then ruin its character (in terms of both appearance and drive) with tasteless cosmetic modifications.

If you are going to drive the car daily, It is not worth it. Plus you will have to be real careful and nevver speed because there are so many damn potholes in NJ/NY.

I literally FALL INTO potholes with my 20" iFORGED, and TEIN HA coilovers dropped about 2.5", never had a problem yet. (no flats, no bubbles, no nothing). You name a crappy street / highway in the tri-state and I drive on it! LOL

The secret is strong wheels and the correct tire pressure.

As far as all the "dont ruin your car with 20s" comments, I guess I will just take the "its your car and your funds, do what you like" stance. I personally have seen some pretty nice fanatic rides with 20" wheels.
