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.
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 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. =-)
