20 inch rims!!!

Ok, I purchased a set of some sweet chrome 20" rims, and right now, they have 225 35 20s, but the person who had them before lowered his car, and theyre pretty bald on the inside, so Im gonna go with new tires.

I know with such a big rim, speedometer accuracy is affected, so I wanted to know what size should I go with for a 20" rim to get as close to accurate as possible??

what about a 235 tire, will that fit without rubbing?

hell no a 235 wont fit! 235's don't even fit with smaller wheels. i think you got the wrong wheel for the wrong car. 20's don't belong on legends, they just don't look right!

however, idle tire size would be 215/30R20.

lets start wit this, how wide r they? what the ofset?

you in NY, any tires you put on will have to be rubber bands and will cause you to fuck up the wheel quickly

I just don't see why ppl do this to our cars, 19' are really the biggest wheels to put on our cars.

I dunno what the offset is, but the width is 8

I had 235/45/17 and they were fine, however for the 20" rims probably based of the rim offset. what is the offset anyways?

yes they will fit on 16' but not 20's because of differences in rim size. most 20' wheels are atleast 9in wide. too wide, said it before and will say it again, 20' do not belong on legends, they just don't look right. 20' belong on wide body RWD cars and SUV's.period. it takes away from class and adds to ass.

Damn, what's with the animosity towards 20's??!

Ive seen some 20's on this forum that look reeeeally nice. I understand not your taste, but not why you would shit talk on them.

don't worry about what other people say about 20s...he tried to help at least...


That said, go with another set of 225s they don't make 215s in the 20 variety. 225 will be alright, but don't do 235...highest wheel diameter i'd do a 235 with is 18 and that's pushing it. 16s would be the best for a 235.

For the 20, stick with the 225/35 variety. I think there's a 225/30 too but i wouldn't use that. THat's like a show tire that's just begging to get your wheel bent up in the first half mile of driving.

Good luck with the fitment.

How wide is the wheel. I found out that wheel width isn't really as important as tire size. an 18x8.5" +42 wheel will scrub with a 235 tire but you'd be able to clear with a 215.

those r terrible rims! they don't fit in at all. I just don't understand wheels like that. they are too wide, and too high ofset. seriously dude, they just don't look right. oh and how about instead of spending $$$ on crappy looking wheels get yourself a decent cam to take some good pics of your car.

I don't have a problem with 20"s on a Legend as long as it's a nice looking wheel, but I'm personally not a fan of huge chrome wheels like those. But hey, it's your car and if you like those wheels, more power to you.

the wheel's design isn't my cup-o-tea, but i do like the chrome look. I guess those are a little too flashy for me. But it does look good

I do like the fit of the wheels and i like the tire fitment on it. Lower it down about 2 inches all around and you should be good.

those look like they're 20x8.5s with probably a +45mm offset.

definitely stick with the 225s, any wider than that and it's going to rub something NASTY. i can already tell.you're going to need to roll/shave the fenders out back too.

Surprisingly, I havent been getting any rubbing!! I put a good amount of load on the back to see if i can spot anticipated rubbing, but since the tires are tapered, they fit right behind the fender nicely! I'm most likely going to roll the fender anyway, just to avoid future problems if I cant get my hands on tires of the same style, thanks.

I only bought these rims because I got them for a reeeeally good price with tires. Im most likely going to be changing the style of the rim but not the size, since I want a set to show off my slotted/dimpled rotors.
