    Been offered some 20's dirt cheap so i might use them as winter wheels. Just wondered what the tyre size should be and what the possibilty of them fitting is..... :icon_thumright:

    Are you pulling our collective legs - 20's in winter dude?!
    surely you want something smaller / crapper for winter and I'd say with less narrow tyres not wider.

    Dont know much about fitting 20s but you would need something like a 30 series 20 inch tyre, which aint going to be ideal in winter

    225/35/20's a 30 profile tyre would anihilate your wages mate!

    They're really cheap so it might be worth selling em on and make a bit of profit.

    Tempted to fit them first and see how they look though :cool:

    Looks phat already, but I reckon even on a 30 profile would probably lift the car up from the floor a bit. Front C links would probably give in over the first harsh bump or hole too, followed by your fillings!

    Yea true the rides harsh enough on 18's, i'll take a look and see if they're worth getting as an investment.
