They would ride rough as guts, i feel everything now with 18s, another fully sik idea, and not paying attention to the practacalities of things, madness, but if you want to scrape every bump in the road, and feel every rock, go for it.

when you feel under your gaurds there is a lip that the wheels can sometimes touch, when you rol your gaurds the lip is pushed back up int the gaurd so the tyre cant touch it, if you get me you shouldnt need to roll your gaurds with 17's i didnt have to with my car an she was pretty low to :D but mine are ed's not to sure about the ef but i wouldnt think so

hope what i said first helped, im sure someone will say it soon with a nice easy to understand, im not to good at explainin things

Bowsaw,

20's are maybe a little large, as ride wil be pretty stiff. However have found some very nice 19's that fit with the guards rolled. I've been told that 20 inchs because they are SO big and chunky might actually slow the car down.

20s will deffiantely fit on a ef with some rolling and maybe flaring of gaurds, there is 2 efs up here in newcast on 20s, jetxr has 20s and theres a blue el xr8 in street fords with 20x8s all round. Also airbags can be made to fit the falcon, i asked burning customs about it a while ago and thye said they can grind out the control arms to fit bags or just use air cylenders on teh fronts instead.

sure 15s, 16s, 17s,18s and 19s all fit good but for f**k sake, 20s fit as well.

you will need to run 45mm hub adaptors on the front to clear the upper tower but the rears will fit. Since there are virtually no 20inch wheels in pre au fitment besides the showwheels or some s**t, you will need to run 38mm hub adaptors. the problem with this is legalities in various states but an engineers certificate should be suffice so budget for that as well.

the xr copies and various other rims under 20inches do look great, but be a little different for once and don't piss the idea off just because it sounds hard to do. make sure you get deep dish or somethin with some sorta dish as those gay a** flat surface chromies that the commodore boys run look pretty fukkin s**t.

Yeh without hub adaptors 20s will fit on no probs....as far as gurad rolling/flaring/pumping ... wont be able to corner much at all without scraping if ya dont....so i'd recommend at least getting the guards rolled.

Cost u from a case of piss up to $200 for a good job so long as paint doesnt get cracked....but better than having to buy new rubber when u tear chunks out of your new tread at round $300+ a tyre when u scrub out.
