20's to big???

So I placed my order for charcoal amr 20's staggered. They won't hit am's store for 2 1/2 weeks. So I have time to change my order. They didn't have pictures of these rims on cars on their website so I don't know what they'll look like (size wise). I've read that 20's look good on the 2010+ models. So let me know what you think and if you have pictures. Lets see some.

20s look good on S197 Mustangs, keep in mind that they are heavier so it will take a little more to turn and accelerate, and the ride will be harder because of less tire, not a terrible amount though... But you will love those wheels!

Man I hope so. I figured since they were out of stock that meant they would look good so everybody is buying them up. Haha. Lets hope that's the case.

20's were my first upgrade...

Opinions are like a$$holes... Everyone has them... Some stink more than others...

Get what YOU like... If you want them, go for it. I think 20's look great on 2010+ bodies.

Your right. And my opinion is your car looks sexy. And 20's look like a good choice. Appreciate the pics. You summed up what I wanted to know.

Never got to tell you congratulations on the new car bro. Glad to see everything worked out. It's good that somebody that enjoys cars at much as you do get something you can be proud of. Instead of someone having that just looks at it as something that can get them from point A to point B.

And 20's look good if you do them.

Not raspy at all... Unique deep tone. The sports are loins when around 4-7k rpm.

A bit too quiet at idle for my taste (I bought the quieter sports instead of the extremes)... The extreme will be compatible in loudness to other top level AB exhausts (Borla atak for example).

I love the unique sound and look or the Corsa.

You'll love em. Just get the extreme!!! (I may change to that one at some point).

Mine looked good for six months then started to chip and once it started it got to the point when touch ups would not do it

Yeah. But for 20 dollars and 3-4 hours of work. It really changes the look of the car.
