with 20"s and espesciually since your gonna lower it id say most certainly yes it will scrub on speed humps and sharp corners....and also yes to the 2nd question....u can have ya guards rolled without crackin the paint if done by someone who knows what there doin...its only then that if it still needs to be be rolled/flared/pumped more then they ask u and keep goin until its enough or the paint cracks n then they just do it until theres no scrubbing but you'll have to have the panel painted...

what im trying to say tho the wider profile rubber isnt the issue its that with the combination of large rims....18" arent that bad but 19/20 they will scrub with stiff suspension and superlows
