    Pics of my trans am with 20's that it came with.. I like em.

    I was in debate wether I liked them or not, but have decided to keep them just widen the rears to 10-11 inches, im thinking about lowering the car just not sure how low I can go... hoping at least 1.5 inches, im definitely getting new shocks real soon just not sure wether to get KYG AGX or bilstein HD, KONIS are out of the question too much $ thanks all for my info on my upcoming/future mods...

    Ok, I am not going to bash the size like most people would. I do not think the 20s look too bad, but the style rim itself is just horrible. Nice house btw, the rims definately do not match the house either. I would get an Eibach prokit, it will lower it roughly 1.5inches.

    You do not need to widen the rear rims, 20s are horrible for performance so that would just be pointless to get wider tread. Get your self a nice 18inch rim at very most... 17 is problem the best trade off for performance and looks together.

    for 20", it doesn't look as bad as i thought it would. wheels design is debate able for me as well.

    I feel the love - i personally like the way they look, maybe the pictures don't do it justice, but i've gotten many compliments on them, a couple of vette owners, and some fbody owners I ran into locally - I do agree that 20's are probably too big, and I might end up getting some 17/18 combo or something (not necesarrily this rims probably ccw) but until I can fork up the money for some CCW im probably going to keep these, rent a wheel offered me 1500 for these rims. So I could get replicas if I wanted to - i'll see.

    Yeah man sorry to jump on the wagon but I'm just not feeling it, especially the style of the rim. I'd sell for some 18's and cash

    I think your car is bad ass. It looks mean enough being a t/a but those wheels make it look evil. I personally don't like 20's on fbodies but you pulled it off nicely. I don't think that style of wheels would look good in any other size.

    GOOD JOB!

    for me, it's the black wheel on a black car part of it. sometimes, it works. sometimes, it doesn't.

    put them on ebay and see what you get for them, rent a rim probably offered you a 1/3 of what their worth. use the money to buy some zo6 rims and drag radials and a few boltons.

    Put those back on P. Diddy's Escalade and grab some Prostars or Z06's...
    Just kiddin, I'm not a fan of 20" rims, but that style might look better if it was smaller? I dunno, it's a personal preference.
