Staggered looks bad ass. Just look around at different wheel companies and see which wheels you like the best

everyone has their own opinion in what rims look best etc, just make sure they fit right (backspacing and width is good). If you want to rotate then you will need the same size rim front/back. With 20s you wont get a ton of life so expect new tires 30-50k miles.

If you buy tires from someone like discounttiresdirect they generally offer offsets in prices if the tires dont meet the manuf. recommended miles. Alignment and such plays in here so keep that in spec.

as far as tire sizes.... dont go to narrow. If you dont plan to run a good tire size then dont buy a rim wide enough to need a different tire size :)

8 inch wide tires 245-255
9 inch wide tires 265-275 (275 preferred)
10 inch wide tires 285-295-305

Thanks for the info. Why does a 20 have short tire life?

I see how about 19s do they have better life? I know they are more expensive tires
The less sidewall you have, the harder the tires are, the faster they wear. And with any tires for these cars they're gonna be performance oriented so they're not gonna last long anyway

Ya smaller rims you'll have more side wall and less punishing on the tread so better wear overall
