    I wouldn't roll on 20"s blazing unless your buying coilys, either KW V2s/V3s or Bilstein PSS9s/PSS10s. Ride will be horrid on springs.

    Springs and coilys aside, the ride will be quite harsh on 19s due to the smaller sidewall profile in the tyre, I can't imagine what it would be like on 20s with even less. Book your chiropractor appointment soon!

    I didn't see the ride suffer to much when the 19"s went on if I'm honest.
    But yeah on 20"s there is vitrually no side wall!

    I'd go with Weitec coilovers if your on a budget, they are made by KW! I'd go with 19"s blazing, less hassle.

    Well the ride on 18"s and 19"s with coils isn't much different John, in fact I prefer the ride with 19"s. I may lose a little ride quality, but I will report that at the time.

    Agreed

    I wish :think: :scared2: :laugh:
