I have no words for this... Too bad you have no taste, and SHOULD be driving a '98 Integra. [I love Integras, really durable, but kids need to stop trying to make em fast with Altezza lights, rims, turbo whistlers, and stickers.

You asked for people running on 20" wheels so obviously, you will be getting appropriate responses. For the most part, serious people will run on wheels that are appropriate for their cars....20" wheels are not of appropriate sizes - I hate to tell you that...

Had a friend who ran 20" wheels on his ///M and he told me that he regretted having wheels so large on them....he ended up going back to 19" wheels, which are much more appropriate for the E46 series.

If you want decent responses from your "fellow forum members" then I suggest you submit threads that do not detract from the styling/performace of these fine cars....

In the end it's up to you how you set up your car....good luck running on 20's in Mass.....it's bad enough I have stock 18's on my ZHP when I go up there...
Oh Really?

I say no to 20's. But like a few said on here it is ur car do what you like. But again, i dont recommend 20's for an e46. Too much weight. My cousin has a charger on 24's and i always dip out on him on the freeway because his rims are so big.

Personally I like the look of the 20's on THIS e46 BUT its had alot of suspension work to look like this...Most people want to run stock (18's) or just want to rull fenders and maybe lower slightly...I dont see most people wanting to do fender mods or major camber adjustments just to make a larger wheel fit.

IMO if you really wanna pull off 20's your really gonna have to dump your car quite a bit and run some stretched tires. However that being said 20's can look good IMO but put some thought into it and look at offsets and do some hw good luck.
