I'm digging these Niche Verona rims. You can get them in 19's or 20's.

Can't go wrong with either 19's or 20's, guess it depends more on the design of the wheel.

I got the Niche Targas in 19" (staggered). I think AM has the 20" targas available in a wider option than the 19" unless there is a typo. If you go that route I'd call them and confirm the rear size.

Photo of the 19's staggered:

Thanks!

Yes, I got them from AM. I went with the 19s so allow for more sidewall and a better ride.

20s look too big honestly and more sidewall=better ride. 19s look just right on a S197 IMO. Even 18s look ok with the right tire. From a performance standpoint 17s or 18s with the right tire are going to be better than 19/20s anyway.

You bought a Boss. Ford designed this model for handling. When people look into 20's, you have to ask yourself, what do you want from the car, more straight-line performance and looks, or handling?

Some 20's look pretty good with the right tires, but too narrow or short looks funny, especially if the car isn't lowered.

Why not get the 18s? Cheaper than the 19s or 20s. A staggered setup, 9s on the front and 10s on the rear is really good looking.

Wider wheels mean a larger contact patch, and thus more grip. With more grip you can exert more force (from accelerating, braking, and cornering) before reaching the limits of adhession.

Until you go too wide and spread the weight over too big a patch and actually get less grip than an optimal width tire. A 275 is more than enough for a rear tire honestly and a 275 or 285 fits great on a 10" wide rim.
