Still working on the mods, for the time being my sig has the few mods on the newer g5. The biggest thing is wanting to go way, WAY bigger on the wheels cause my 17's are toast :oops:

Anybody yet figure a 20" tire combo that fits?

the bigger you go the worse it looks the slower your car will be and the more they will weight

20's fit, but they're damn ugly

this ain't some 70's buick that's pimpin' it's an economy car.. comon! :roll:

the largest i would go is 19's and thats just because the rial nogaro's look so good on our cars in that size. 20's are a bit rediculous

duh!!

I guess you missed something here but the point of going plus-size is to keep the same OVERALL diameter.

so if you go with 18's the tire will be slimmer and the rim larger, that will be even worse if you go with 19's which means poorer ride quality and worse look.

cause what makes your ride look too high is the ratio of TIRE height vs the actual wheel gap so i you don't plan to drop, the car will look less stupid with 17's than with 19's even if they're the same overall.

I think it comes to a point where you shouldn't have a tire larger than the car.
