Not my cup of tea. I prefer proper handling on my cars, but if that'* what you like, and it gets you the attention you want, more power to you.

I personally like the STYLE of the wheels. Great choice. But I think they'd look better in 17'* or maybe 18'* at the most.

DEFINITELY a nice wheel, but would look 300% better a bit smaller, 18" would be perfect.

I think with such huge wheel walls that we have, 20'* look awesome, anything bigger than that gives too tall a ride.

'Floats like a Boat' isn't what I'd call 'handling'. Those short sidewalls are costing you in cornering. But you're after looks, not handling. Like I said, not my cup of tea, but if it'* what you like, more power to you.

not bad at all, those rims look nice on the white


as far as handling goes, your car might handle slightly better then on stock "touring" tires, but having zero flex in the sidewall is actually hurting the handling (plus the weight of the rims), but if you don't go to the track, I don't think it will make any difference really. The main reason it seems to handle so well is because of the no flex in the sidewall, the car won't seem to "dive" when you turn.

To me, 20s look better on the SE, less sporty body style. I do like the design of the wheel, but I would have gone with 17s or 18s if it were MY car.

I don't know if I'd want to run with 20s in the winter though.
