Just a personal opinion. But it's all fun and games till you whack a curb and you get the bill for the new rim and tire replacement.

I know the 20's are all flashy and whatever..... but when it comes down to shear performance a cheap set of 15's with a healthy set of BFG 31's maybe 32's, and you can literally bounce of curbs, never worry about wheel and tire problems again. Plus it gives you that extra money to do muffler upgrades and whatever other mods.

I am speaking from experience. In my younger days, I had a sweet 1997 Cadillac DTS with 20" Arelli's and super thin Perelli tires. It was awesome for 1 summer, till the potholes, bad weather, and curb check.

Not too mention those thin tires take away all the ride quality, might as well be riding a 2 x 4 with wheels.

But to each one his own. Just thought a little advice from someone who has learned the hard way might help.

Yeah, sitting ON bump stops=riding on bricks (of rubber). You can't say they all ride like crap just 'cause you don't do yours right.
