Default It'* that time, where the rims need to change.

Need some help though, basic help.

1.) I need to replace my tires. Can I get larger tires? I would like to fill up the wheel well a little bit better.

2.) Since I want to get large tires, I would like to put on 20'*. I've seen 20'* put on before, but how much worse does it make the ride, is it really THAT bad?

Info:

Bolt pattern: 5x115?

Tire size: ?

What else do I need to know?

Thankyazzz

P.*. looking for a nice combo of performance and bling.

20'* will not help but hurt performance. they look great but most people think the ride sucks with them. look at where and how you drive before getting 20s.

Yes, I would not get them on a daily driver. You get a hole with them & they will bend & cost you money. If you use the car daily, up to 18 & you still have to be carefull with them.

17'* or 18'* if you a peformance buff, 20'* hmm.... I didn't notice much of a change, 22'* I rode on so long there'* no difference to me at all,

people warn of potholes and such, you should be watching out for them anyway honestly the tires that are used for rim upgrades are as good as any, just don't buy cheap tires to lower cost, tires stop the car after all............

thanks guys

theres 2 things im debating with right nowt hough

if im stuck with my current tires, ill get 18s.

if i can get bigger tires, not just wider but overall bigger, id liek to get 19s or 20s. i dont know if its possible to get bigger tires though, like wider AND just overall bigger. i just want to fill the wheel well better without losing turning ratio because it already pretty much sucks haha. i just want something that will make the whole smaller so it looks more like a mean sports car u know what im saying?

255 is our limit I believe, I had 255/55 18'* on the 92 and they had a slight rub if you turned the wheel to it'* max, nothing damaging though.
