I like the rim design, i think they are too large for the car personally. Like 2KSB im wondering how the ride is now.

They look good, but I bet they rub! I had to send my 20s back for 18s, because I couldn't stand the rubbing! Plus I like a little bit of protection for my rims. Looks good though, and a air ride kit would make her look saweeeeeet!

I have one question, though. If you go much bigger than 18, doesn't that just ruin your torque? You lose torque if you go too big...right?

Wouldn't matter much otherwise, but he has an SSEi.

If he is going for performance, he needs 18". The 20s are a bit to big for performance, but look great for show set up. To big does equal less torque to the wheels because of the revolution time and added wieght.
