Im just wondering if you can fit 20 inch rims on an XE sedan. i am just wondering if the bigger rim will hit on any of the suspension componants, and does anyone have any pics of X series fords with big wheels,
Cheers John

20s are great till you go over a bump more then 35km/h hour and buckle them.

its about the looks and nothing else, more rolling diameter will mean it'll take longer for yoru car to get somewhere as well as putting your speedo out as well

what i dont get is, why get 20s for 2500+ dollars and u wont do anything to ur engine? its stupid, your willing to drive on something that looks rice to make it look 'sik' but not willing to make the car go? :P lol

my car is purely a weekend car maybe once a blue moon, and will be for summernats etc, so i wont exactly be driving it down the coast or anything. i just love how big wheels on old cars look, it just makes them so tuff. ive had 19s on before with no dramas, but i interested to see if the bigger diameter of the rim will foul on anything? cheers for the comments lol

Actually you'll get there sooner, they don't have spin as fast to do the same distance.

The speedo will read slower than the actual car is going.

20's look cool but are so unpractical.

I've got 17s with drop spindles in the front of my XD ute, and now way in hell I could fit anything bigger. The rear end is minitubbed and I'd be lucky to get an 18 in there too.

Waste of money buying 20's IMHO

i fit 255's under the back of my ute no worries, a mate had 275 or 265's years ago and he reckon he had a bit more to play with.
