20"s with low pro will be 100% legal.

If you go to the vicroads website, or whatever state you're in, it has a list of the legalities.

For victoria it's something like no more than 2" bigger than the standard rim for that model or series. For BA, the XR8's had 18's so 20's are legal. Then the diameter is allowed no more than I think 24mm increase. So you need to run low profile tyres. But yes, it's very easily legal with a BA.

And they look sick.

Good luck.

Easy solution, buy a BA XR8 tyre placard, they had 17's standard with optional 18's, problem solved, 18 + 2 = 20.....

Are you lot daft?
The link I posted is from the SA gov transport site. It has the details you need to know, which does NOT include the 2" rule.

I've got 20's legally on my BA XR8, hardest thing is alot of 20" Tyres have the wrong load rating (I got Nankang NS2's) & the widest you can go on the front in 245/30R20.
