Re: rim size

Yes those sizes while not optimum can work depending on the backspace. Do you know what backspace they are? I might as well add that if the backspace is correct to make a combo like this "look good" you will need to lower the car more both front and rear. Take a look at the cars with the "big" wheels - they look so much better when the are "slammed". Hey that's just my opinion and others will differ.

Re: rim size

Do a search on "20s" - there's a weeks worth of reading I just checked to be sure. There's lots of info on tire sizes and backspace. Hope this helps.
