    I run 20x10 (275) in the rear and 20x8.5 (245) in the front, its the stagger that the wheel shop I went to usually runs with 20"s.
    Havent heard the stagger you mentioned, 235 is narrower than stock though.

    20's are heavy 18's fill the wheel well just as nice and weigh less.

    You will get alot of ppl talking you out of 20s on here and on tech, but run what you want.
    This is the 2nd set of 20s Ive had on the car and had compliments with both sets. Just make sure to lower the car, it looks wrong if its stock height.
    These are a couple pics the shop took, sorry not sure how to resize them.

    Yeah, I found there's two things that people seem to get the panties in a bunch over, big wheels, and body color wheels.

    Neither one bothers me, I've got body color wheels(18s) on my Camaro.

    Thanks for the compliments guys, guess the opinion is slowly changing over the past 6 yrs or so.
    Anyways, good luck with whatever combo you go with pewter

    Oh and another thing to think about, if going with the big wheel, might want to get a big brake kit. My old wheels didn't show as much empty space as the TSW's do, so now the brakes look tiny. I am putting on the CTS-v brake kit as soon as I get everything. Still not sure what I want to do with the rears though.

    They are TSW Jarama's 20x8.5 and 20x10. There were several wheels designs from that company that I was considering and the rears all have a nice lip. I can't recall the offset off the top of my head, no issues with rubbing either and the car is lowered with prokit springs. I am pretty hard on my car also, and havent had any issues with them (I have had these on the car for almost a year now).
    I got them from KCTrends, a local shop here in KC. I'm sure you can go on their website and find vendors close to you.

    What size tires are you running? I went to TSW the have several nice rims. They even have one that looks like the famous CCW but it's not chrome.

    i like meat on my wheels but with my rear wheel width, 10.5, they rubbed a lil bit til i pulled out the hammer. 10 “ wide shoulnt have problems though. the main problem with me and big wheels is that i notice road problems with the road with just 17s and 18s. i imagine it to be worse with less tire. i like comfortable ride on my dd and when the z is no longer a dd it will be raced. big wheels hurt performance.

    245/35/20 fronts
    275/30/20 rears (will probably go with 285 or 295 with the next set, the shop wasnt sure about rubbing so they suggested 275 first)

    And yes, everyone knows bigger wheels hurt performance, but I never go to the track and the car is still faster than most cars on the road...plus no matter how much you put into the car, there will always be one thats faster, so might as well go for what you like. Just my 2 cents.

    haha, I have never tried to push people towards 20s, just think its ignorant that so many ppl jump all over someone when they say the want 20s. It can be done right with the right wheel, true alot of ppl have failed and put some horrible wheels on. But I feel that can be said with 16-19in wheels as well.

    anyways, glad the springs worked out and hope you enjoy the new rims as well

    I like the 20's on your car and would consider it on mine if I didn't beat on it so much, I burn through rear tires fast and the 18's are cheaper.I run 18's on mine because i like the extra tire for pot holes. My buddies car rode hard with his 20's and the lowering springs.

    Price on tires just depend on the brand you get, but I agree usually 18s are cheaper. I use to burn through tires alot more, but I guess I'm not as aggressive as I was in high school...haha, guess my dad was right and age does show SOME maturity. And potholes suck with 20s, thats why I try to stay on the KS side and not go into MO with the t/a.
