    Its just my opinion but from what I've seen, 20" wheels just don't look right on 4th gens.

    It depends on the offset if they will rub or not. I am on my second set of 20s. The first set were 20x8.5 and had some rubbing issues. Now I have staggered 20x8.5 and 20x10 with no rubbing issues.
    With that being said, I agree with the above, wheel choice is critical when going with 20s. I have seen several pontiacs that I like, but have yet to see a camaro pull off 20s that I like. Also I highly recommend upgrading to a big brake set up too bc the stock 12" rotors look tiny inside the 20" wheel

    you can roll the lip on the rear fenders if they are rubbing on the outside of the tire. It will give you alittle extra room.
