Default 20" rims?

ive been looking, and 20'* look like they would be no problem, the thing is, ride quality is obviously going to be worse. How much worse?

agreed, If your a performance nut I'd say stay away from them twank twanks.

long term affects of riding 20'* you don't hear
1 wears out joints and bearings before intended.
2 strains transmission over a long period of time.
3 throws off your speedometer a little
4 gives u bad gas mileage (older cars especially) chrome wheels weigh a lot, at least 30 pounds or more per wheel newer cars like yours should have no problem though.
