midnight silver sizes

i noticed in the ordering guide that the RS package comes with 20" midnight silver rims. does anyone know if the midnight silver comes in smaller sizes?

do you know if it makes a big difference as far as handling goes between the 20" and the 18-19" rim?

less side wall = better handleing = more road noise felt in (your) rearend

its a trade off. i personally love my 20's on my truck as they handle 50% better then the 17's that were on the truck. so performance wise i will keep 20's on it with the same amount of sidewall, but adding more width to the tire.

Yes but bigger rims means less tire which usually means rougher ride. 20's shouldn't be to bad though. i went from factory 17's to 20's on my truck and it didn't change the ride at all, handels better with the better tires though but no ride change

crew cab, ZQ8 (factory lowered sport suspension) LS, wheels and muffler, rides nice but the muffler drones a little while on long trips.... i love it, will probably try to buy a couple year old 2009 v8 sport colorado after i get my camaro payed for.

I have not been able to drive one but my friend did and he says it was very peppy, broke tires loose with little effort, plus compared to a silverado, my silverado has the 5.3 rated at only 295 hp and it goes so a midsize with 300, if they didn't cost so much i would consider one
