I'd say 18's. the 20's look awesome but you sacrifice a lot of bite because you have no sidewall on the tire. Either way though, they will look awesome on a silver Stang! Just curious... V6 or GT?

18's perform better, 20's looks better. It depends what is more important to you.

I went with what was cheaper to replace tires on and what I thought would look best. My car is just tuned with a CAI and exhaust so I'm not real worried with how much I grip I get when I take off considering I don't slam on the gas every time I drive.

20" wheels don't really ride much different too me. The ride is still pretty smooth and the cornering is better do to less sidewall (It's more supportive instead of giving and making me feel like I'm about to roll over. Lol.) Part of the ride also depends on the tire so take that into consideration. My Proxes ride really well so far but I can make them spin in 2nd and 3rd still at WOT.

Placing a vote for 18s. More tire the better IMO

I agree with Alec, the 18's are a better performance direction. Also for me, in a perfect world visually, I would do a staggered arrangement of 18x9 wheels in front with 265/45/18 tires, and 19x10 wheels in rear with 305/35/19 tires. Both those tire sizes would be at about a 27.35 height, and the larger rear wheel optically looks more balanced. Erik

I ran 20's for over a year. Now I'm on 18's

20's = harsh ride, hard to hook up on launch, kind of gangsta looking (pure opinion), better cornering on SMOOTH road, skittish cornering on rougher roads, heavier.

18's = better ride, massive grip on launch, better muscle car look with more tire (pure opinion), more roll in corners but more predictable and easier to control on various road surfaces, lighter.

I have had both on this car. For me, it's 18's all the way!

I have 20's, but I prefer 18's. The wheels came with the car when I bought it used. Staggered 18's in CHROME would look really good! FYI, 19" tires are a bit more expensive and the selection is not as good as others.
Is your car lowered? If not, I would highly recommend to fill in the wheel wells. =-)
