18's will be your best bet 19's will rubb and so will 20's without modding.

I'm going to buy 19"s and have some fender modification so I'm selling my 5 spoke 18" RH (Racing Harts) with chrome lip and black face. They are 18x7 with fairly new tires (225/40/18). PM me if you're interested. I'm going out of town for 2 weeks so I won't be able to reply after Tuesday.

It's not as simple as size, offset, width and hub size play a big roll in what "will work" without modification.

for example: 20x7 will fit without modification depending on offset and wheel design.

I also suggest before doing any wheel upgrade to have proper working suspension components:

ball joints, struts, inner and outer tie rods etc. (keep in mind that aftermarket wheels are heavier and will cause worn parts to fail!)

Thanks for the advice and feedback. I will definitely keep that in mind.

I just had my struts and inner & outer tie rods replaced. I'll have my mechanic check out the ball joints... is there anything else I have to watch out for?

Keep it OEM. GS wheels refinished is the answer. Anything else is a headache waiting to happen.

^^ no that pretty much covers it besides choosing the correct tire. If you go with to low a profile you will end up with bent/cracked rims.

Yea I know what you mean. That's why I'm avoiding 30 series tires and would rather spend more $ to mod the fenders to accommodate thicker tires...

Lose the locking lug nut. It takes away from the look.
