depnds on if you want to go fast or slow. it's a big difference between 16" and 20", and those chromies look pretty heavy. Sure you could get a better launch with grippy tires, but it'll take more energy to get those 20's spinning.

i would go back to stock. when you put heavy chrome 20" rims on, you throw the whole balance of the car off big time. you may get more tire flex with the stock rims, but your car will handle better.

Balance of the car thrown off???

Handle better with more tire flex and narrower rubber???



Please explain why.

i don't know if you have ever auto crossed or not. when a car is stock and you have the stock rims on, you are going to have better corner balancing than you would if you put aftermarket rims on. all i was saying is that your car will handle better with stock rims even though the sidewall is taller and softer. im not necessarily saying that taller, softer sidewalls will handle better (any half intelligent person would know that this is not true). but i guess what i am trying to offer is that he would have better corner balancing with stock rims. all that being said, (just my opinion btw) the only real way he will be able to truly balance the car would be to get adjustable coilovers and adjust them accordingly.

I have 19" wheels with 235 tires and I would never take them off for anything... the stock tires (even on the 6spd 17inch) are complete garbage. My car handles so much better with the wider grippier tires! The 20s may slow you down in the long run though (esp off the line!)
