Replicas?

Just ordered a set of replica chrome 20's for my 2SS. Receipt said all were 9 inches wide. Is this correct for 2SS?

the rears are 20x9, the fronts are 20x8 from the factory. You can run the 20x9's up front though (I do) with absolutely no issues.

Which would also allow you to rotate your tires....Likewise, I have a set that are all 20 x 9's, work well....

So there's no sacrifice of performance? Also, with the wider front rims does it sling more dirt on the front side of the door panels?

Dude @ the tire shop said to rotate id have to sacrifice an inch of width on the rear,so all would be 9. Also, since Im going with the new Bfgoodrich G-force Sport comp 2 tires there could be a wait on the 9's all the way around. They have the OEM tire size in stock in sport comp2, so I went ahead and placed the order. (3 to 5 days) Will update with a pic soon.

Actually improves the performance in my experience...no they fit pretty wheel in the fender gap, so I don't notice more dirt on the sides.

wel your DUDE is WRONG.....seeing as how the rears ARE 9" and the stock tire size is 275/40/20 in the back, so there is nothinhjg sacrificed.....you would be GAINING in the front, not losing in the rear.....and all of us that are running the 20 x 9's all the way around are running that size on all four corners.
