Default Opinions please. Should I put 20's on my 08 Roush 427R?

I just purchased the car this week with 3,000 miles on the clock. It has the stock Roush chrome 18's on it now. I love the wheels but think something bigger may look better. I have an in on some 20" American Muscle Bullitt reps that are chrome.

Should I install the 20's or leave the wheels be?

i like the ones on the car more than the 20s you have chosen. But the ROUSH 20s are nice

I'd say leave it. I noticed a small difference (weight) when I went from 16's to 18's, but it looks 100x better

Do I need to remove the front bumper to install them?

No... all you need to remove is both inner fenders and the whole swap may take all of 30 minutes.

If you can, put the 20" on and see how they look.
