You think 20" are too big ?? why , does ride quality suffer a lot 20" vs 19"

I am going to buy some rims very soon I have stock 17's on my 05 GT

just trying to decide what size to get ... I'm looking into 20" with 295/30ZR/20 on the rear 255/35ZR/20 wheel offset +36mm , +45mm

wheel size 20x8.5 and 20x10

my car is not lowered by the way .

My car is not lowered either, but I plan to drop it an inch and a half...and my aversion to 20in rims is just personal preference, I wouldn't even go with 19s...I have stock 17s on my 06 and with a slight drop, I think it looks like an amazing muscle car. Just never been into big rims personally...although I have been looking at 18's just to pass some time.

And ride quality will suffer to some extent just because of the reduced and stiffer sidewall of a performance tire. But nobody in a mustang cares about that haha

Like he said its preference I have 20 inch as well because to me they look better. Im on stock suspension as well and the ride is the same. Until I lower it and yes it will be firmer but once again its a mustang not cadillac. I wouldnt do 19 just cause of the odd size but its what you want.

Yes it is personal preference , I personally love the look of bigger rims , it seems the ride quality doesn't suffer THAT MUCH with 20" s that was my main concern , and to have wide tires is only a benefit (295's) if you add high HP ie , supercharger , it's a good way to hook up and put the power to the pavement.

I dont notice much of a difference as far as ride quality. I can tell you this... we have a set of bad RR tracks in town and the 20's are much smoother going over bumps on tracks. Handling is much much better. You cant tell they are 20's unless you look at tire to be honest.

the only negative thing I felt out of it was fixed with the panhard bar as my rear was an inch off. After installing i can't tell the difference and I knew I needed the panhard bar anyway for the lowering springs. Killed two birds with one stone. And by the way, nice rims man! Completely changed the look of the car vs. the stockers.

A panhard bar is not going to give you much of anything, mainly placebo in the "feeling:" department BUT they can add NVH from polyurethane bushings. I went with the Poly on body but softer on the axle side and it added zero NVH.

The panhard bar will help hold you steady in slamming 2nd also which reduces spin in 2nd.
