20" Rims - Thoughts + Opinions

I wanna go big, real big. I was wonderign if 20's would fit with no scraping or mods. I'd also like to know what tire size is recomended with a mid profile tire, i'd also like the tire to be a little wider than the rim to try and prevent possible curb rash. I know the wheel size will slow me down soem but, its not like I can go fast anyway so I dont care. Thanks for any and all input...unless ur flaming me

I've only ever seen one set of 20s on a stang that I liked and he had a saleen body kit that made it look good, otherwise it almost always looks tacky. I'd say 18s are as big as you want to go generally

i dont think 20's would fit you would have to encounter scraping on turns im guessing, ive seen them on a 99+ and that car had a bit of scraping.

I've seen 20s on a couple stangs. I didn't like either one. I'd say 18 is plenty big for me. I'm only going 17.

what wheels are you looking at?

a "mid-profile" tire? if that was the case your wheels would have the diameter of a monster truck.

your tires will look like very expensive black rubber bands pulled around the wheels. i don't know da phat shiat like that, but i'm sure a 20x8 wheel will be just fine. rubbing only happens when the wheel is too wide (problems start at 9") or if the car is slammed down to the ground.
