i think the 20's would look beter but they will hurt performance, so its up to you if you dont mind sacrificing performance for looks.

Think you would be going backwards putting 20s on your ride. It looks sweet with the rims on it now.

Alright.... I agree with all of you. Roush tuned this car for 18's. I may look for some nice staggered 18's. I am thinking grey though.

no, keep what you have, you are not going to find many wheels that are better than what you have

I say either keep the wheels that you have on there or go with the 20" Roush rims...those are really nice looking wheels.

20's are just too big and look to blingy! Plus not only do you lose out on performance but the ride suffers more because of the required lower profile tires.

It looks good with the wheels on it! I mean come on.... it's a Roush!!!

Love the car!
