i took a nice trip to a place called driver'* edge or something like that about 20 minutes away. they got pretty much every rim from 17s to 30s. i spoke to some guy who drives a little racing civic with what looked like 18inch enkeis. anyways, he really seemed convinced to sell me 20s.... heres what im getting:
for those of you too lazy to look at the website, the rims come in 18, 19, 20, etc..., by 8.5, so either way im gettin fatter tires, better for performance though right?
originally, i really wanted to get the 19x8.5s b ecause they come in a nice 5x115 bolt pattern, how convenient eh? anyways... i figured this because u know, in between 18 and 20, so a little performance and a little luxury. relaly cool until he told me 19s were more expensive than 20s. so now im thinking.
he told me the only reason that 20s would be worse for performance is because of the gear ratio or something like that, i didnt really understand him because he was talking car. smart guy, really nice, but i didnt understand. the 20s also look relaly nice in that specific rim because of the longer spokes. but i remembered back to how everyone here says that 20s suck for performance and the ride is terrible, etc.... and i also dont want my car to say 60mph and it actually is going 64mph. i want to keep it as close as possible to normal. so what should i do? should i get them in 18s, 19s, or 20s.
also: the 18s come in 5x114.3 but thats not really an issue because they know how to do it properly.
oh and another also: he recommended some type of Falken F brand tire because of its great performance, but i dont know what dimensions to get it in? 235/55 is current but the guy kept talkin about 245/50 or something and how it would work much better? ugh this is so complicated. id appreciate it if anyone could leave any of their 2 cents or IM me on ferullo0 thanks
mainly: which is better for performance, and why.
it doesnt say, but these look like 20" on mercedes
i know im awful at photoshop, but what size do these rims look like? ill make a poll for it. FYI u gotta kinda ignore the tire size because i just photoshopped it terribly. just look at the rims
