i'm rollin on 20's. but went with 19's front to avoid the innevitable rubbing that WILL come from 20's on the front. not in a straight line, but guess what show ponies, most people turn corners, with bumps, and drive up driveways with the wheels turned. rubbing will be unavoidable at some point.

guard rolling places? try a heat gun and a rubber mallet. works fine.

22's on the back would be a cinch. theres a tonne of room under there for rims with the right offset....

iv been told that if i remove the plastic lining from the inside of the gaurd that will eliminate a majority of the rubbing... is this true or even close? :?

I think 18s are more than big enough for an ef. 20s will slow it down and also remember when it comes to replacement tyres itll cost you a lot more that a smaller diameter. it will also place strain on your power steering not to mention you will feel every bump. Also worth checking with you insurance company as most wont insure you with 20s. Spend your money on getting another car rather than spending a fortune on wheels that are probably worth more than the car itself.

yeah and factory speakers are big enough- and factory steering wheel, why bother with an aftermarket one? and factory springs and shocks- and factory brakes :roll:

mate i think your missing the point. slow it down? not with 4.11's mate. if all you can afford is 18's, then all you can afford is replacement 18" tyres. if you can shell out for 20's, the price of new rubber aint gonna bother you much. not to mention the price difference between 18's and 20's is getting less and less weekly. and if we all go out and spend money on some other car (and EVERYONE could find a more expensive car than what they already have now) we'd have no money left to mod it and all end up as boring as you!

I agree tyre prices are dropping and if you are confortable with 20s its your call but for an ef i think its too big. It wont cruise very nice over bumps. As far as the comments about the sound system speakers they are pathetic and in need of replacement[unless youve got a premo system]. Im not saying in anyway to leave it stock but 20s are still overkill on an EF. Whilst you car might be low kms etc, you might be surprised to see how little they are actually now worth. Market Value is prob 3k- 3.5 on car and wheels and tyres 2k+. I dont mean to upset people but often people buy crap cars and spend more on them than they are worth and get upset when they sell them and get sweet f**k all. All im saying is keep s**t in perspective.
