19" and 20" Rims on Trans Am

This is a discussion on 19" and 20" Rims on Trans Am within the Wheels and Tires forums, part of the General Help category; The taller the wheel, the further from the hub the weight is. Which means more rotational mass....

    Oh, in that direction. Gotcha.

    I was worried a bit that it may hurt braking, but I as far as I can tell the Panther Plus pads I'm running seem to feel the same. I guess if you got out a stopwatch for accel and measured the feet for decel you would see a difference, but for me it seems a non issue.

    I had a bunch of pics posted a lil while ago, but had to replace them with the pics of my factory wheels to sell them, never bothered to put them back up. I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I can't figure out how to have more than about 8 pics posted at a time. Give or take. Of course you can click on my name and get a better look at my Avatar under "view public profile". At least it's bigger, but it's the same shot. I'll take any suggestions as to how to keep more shots posted.

    Go over to Photobucket dot com. Sign up and you can post lots of pics. The free account limits the image size to 1024x768 or something like that, but you have tons of space for hundreds of photos.

    do 18's fit well on T/A's or do they lift the car up high like you see these "pimps" haha driving around on hondas? Does the T/A keep the same ride height and stance?

    The rim diameter has little to do with the overall tire height. When the rims get taller the tire sidewall should get shorter to compensate. So it's up to you to choose what tire diameter you want.
