Default 2000 Bonneville SLE

I rolled through the hood to show off for my fan club the other day. Here are the new 20'' Enkei Luxury Series wheels I got with Toyo Proxes 245/55 ZR20s. I took them off two days later. Looks good, but doesnt feel good as stock 17'*. Ill use them for weekends only.

You do give up ride ability with some wheel and tire combination'*. They look nice though!

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

I almost put them back on today but it was raining off and on and I dont want to clean the car and rims only to get wet an hour later. Everybody tells me to get some white 22s but I think thats a bit much because I drive alot and if I blow one tire out Im not forking over $100+ for a used one, let alone $200 for a new one. At least with these a used tire is around $80 and a new one wont be so much more.

245/55R20? I think you mean 245/35. I don't know how well a 245/55 would tuck when mounted on a 20" wheel. That would be a fairly large profile.

I just went to Tire Wholesalers today and picked up 3 new tires that were 255/35/20 because the 245/35/20 was too thin and I went to Xochimilcos on the southwest side of Detroit the night before last and came out to find that my freshly detailed car was on a flat with the seal broken. The southwest side is notorious for potholes and dents due to construction and apparently I hit one on my way there and it leaked out as I ate. So I had to 'escape' the neighborhood and ride the flat about a mile over to the old Tiger Stadium and wait for someone to come with the spare. I ditched the tires after that. The 255/35 was much more tread and you dont feel every rut in the road as much either.

Yeah 255/35/20'* are a lot nicer. The rims I had on my Monte were put on by a conversion company, not by me or the previous owner, so they were done right. The funny thing about them though was because a conversion company did it they put a new tire info sticker on the door. They said I should put 51 PSI cold in the tires...wtf? That'* way toooooo much air.

They were aiming for a blowout lol I had that happen once. But I got the blowout on 96 outside of Howell at midnight in the fall and I had to walk about 3 miles to town to buy a jack and 4 way then lug it back to put the spare on
