I think your car would look best if you lowered the front 1".

Just keep in mind the larger the Wheel and tire package the the harder it is going to be on your suspension, Brakes and everything else. I would Stay with 20'* and lower it one inch.

I say leave how it is and spend spend money on bigger front brakes, thats one thing all these people that have bigger rim/tire combos dont think about, bigger rim= more weight/more heat= less stopping power with stock setup for 17" rims top. I've always said 18" is max for performance minded rims, anything bigger is for da bling, just a waste of good metal and rubber...like this....

also, if you wanna go higher, just get a biga$$ truck, they're way cooler anyways!
