Default For those with 20' rims with stock ride height

I was thinking of doing 20' like cervini's/BBR and so on but wasn't sure about lowering the car. I see people driving around with what I believe are 20' rims and there car is jacked up like a 4X4?? They might be bigger then 20's. Any how , does anyone have 20' rims on a stock ride height? And are they as bad as people say (driving around town)? Thanks guys

Dan,
I have 20's on, with stock suspension. (height) They really aren't that bad for daily driving. Just gotta be a bit careful with potholes, railroad tracks, etc. Not much sidewall = unforgiving at times.....

I also have 20's with the stock suspension. The ride isn't bad at all, but you do have to watch out for the occasional pot hole.

What your seeing is the "new" craze to hit the streets... People taking cars, usually older and bigger sedans, putting 22" to 24" wheels on them and jacking the car up a bit or else letting the wheels lift the car off the ground. Kinda looks funny to me... but to each his own.

I guess a stock mustang on 20"s doesn't look too goofy but I would still drop it a 1.5" all round. I kinda like it sitting a little high in the rear.

Martin,
From one Mineral Grey to another, I thank you!! Imagine my surprise when I finally opened up the July 2006 issue of 5.0 Mustang to page 70, the article about the 05 Mineral Grey Roush, sporting the same Niche Rims....

Dan,
Mine is wearing Nitto 275/35/zr20's rear, and 255/35/zr20's in the front. They were on from the dealership, so, I really can't give you a good idea of cost. I can tell you, however, they are not worth the dealer mark up they were looking for!! (Nor did they get it!)

Mike

With new rightfully being in quotes. Growing up as a kid, I can remember when having a cool muscle car meant jacking the rear end wayyyyyyyyy up in the air, with huge tires (not big rims, just huge tires) in the back, and much smaller ones in the front!

I also have 20's on stock ride height. But i do recommend upgrading brakes if you plan on putting more HP in your car with these size rims. My car is still stock and with the rims i have on if i really need to brake fast the pedal goes to the floor and it grinds like the ABS is on.

Here are a few shots of mine sporting the same Niche rims as mlcrycc except it's been lowered. It'll give you some idea between the lowered/not lowered look.
