You're gonna want beefier brakes to stop the rotating mass. Your ride will be as stiff as it'll go. You'll either be running rubber band tires, or bigger diameter tires, making the car slower.

Possible? Yes.

Worth the $2k in wheels/rubber, for all the bad things? No.

i do not think with a full size, v-6 front wheel drive car i will ever be worried about performance. i have a ram air trans am for that. this car is my every day work/family car that has a killer stereo and i want it to look killer as well. No one can say that this car on 20'* is not sick looking. so yes it will change the braking and it will ride a little stiff but it will still ride better than a trans am that is lowered 2 inchs and that is good enough for me
