Default 20" rims

Just a quickie: I've got a 2002 bonnie and just need to know if there need to be any mods done to fit 20'* with 245/35/20 tires? I haven't heard of any rubbing probs, but just wanted to make sure before I splash out the cash.

Thanks!!

Greetings, Brit!

Yup, 20'* are a performance AND braking killer. Not to mention a harsher ride. But if that'* the look you're after, Godspeed to ya, and we want pics!

Thanks for the tips guys.

Just as a side note, I'm not actually a Brit, just married one! I am having all the work done to the bonneville next week and it is being shipped over to the UK in November.

Thanks Again!

I hope you find some rolling stock that really turns your crank but please stay away from those wheels with the spinning centers. Those things should be against the law! I can't tell you how many times I've slammed on the brakes when someone is sitting on a side street with those $*##[email protected]& spinners. It looks like the car is going to pull right out in front of you.
