20's??? Really

Now, i like the look of the 20's, but from a pure performance standpoint, wouldnt it be better to come with 18's max and drop the car 2-3 inches? i would also think that would look better, have the car lower to the ground then sporting some rims...

I like the 20s. Also, don't forget how big the brakes are.

Given the size of the thing I think 20s look small on it - which is a shame as I'll be going for the 21s or aftermarket. Still, you're probably right from a performance angle.

If the car didn't have 20's it wouldn't look like the concept.

I will also consider the 21's. HOT.

The smallest wheel will probably be 18's around the massive brembo's.

How much should that cost to get done at a shop? I want to be able to price that job fairly so I can get it done.

Around where I live, many will buy a stripped LS V6 auto, tint the windows and put 24-26" wheels on them.

Are You Crazy. I know places that can do all 4 rims for like 3 bills to 350. Its a common mistake to think that powder coating cost that much.

I'm annoyed I have to get 20s on the SS. I hate knowing people will be able to say my cars has "dubs". Ugh.

You can't always get what you want. You know, it's hard out here for a pimp.

My bad.

I just really hope I can get the SS with 18's. Then I can get some aftermarket springs for a slight drop, that thing will look mean.
