You're definitely going to have a lot more performance tire options in a 18"

Smaller wheel bigger tire to fill the same spot. You can get 18s and a good properly sized tire. You have to factor in the weight of the tire. Or you could go light weight 20s with the proper tire, either way the right set up is out there, plenty of choices.

Thought I would show my custom brackets (very simple look) my installer came up with to get rid of the bumper support to create more air flow through the intercooler.

More potential power. But you are paying for more hardware.
