They are big wheels! it says 20' ! twenty foot! OMG F**k! then again maybe it's just a typo! :lol: I think the only prob with 20" rims is thay really make the rotors seem so small esp if you can see a lot of them like with the last choice. Me i like my 18's they can be pretty harsh as it is on pot-holed roads!

btw I recently had my front guards rolled, as i run 245/40/18's all-round and the fronts caught every now and then - it cost me $80 for both so 40-50 bucks a side seems about right.

Yeh, thats simply because the profile (sidewall) is too big.

Hmmm, I'm running the same combo and I havent had an issue with mine catching (supers all round) though I have just rolled 3/4 guards as I'm going to lower it some more.

Good choice, much better than the Cobras. 19s will be plenty big enough.
