It depends on the offset of the rims. Quarter inch spacers should work, but you're going to put a higher load on the wheel studs, and you might end up rubbing the fender with the tire.

Im not sure what your offset is but maybe try adjusting the pinch bot on the rear strusts it will give you like 1-1.5 inches.

And your trans will definitely be toast here in a couple months after pushing those 20's around.

:huh: how so... hell my 20's with the tires on are 3 pounds lighter than my 18's. Plus if he get the right size tires to where they have the same rotation as stock he will be fine. I've ran my 20's for about 1.5 years now. There was a time that I was driving 3 times a week from my house to lubbock tx, which is a 3 hour drive 1 way. :blink: So you know it was getting some miles on there . And my SE is running just fine without problems. :dunno: Have you even had 20's on your car m8? No offense but it seems that ppl that down the 20+ rims are people that have never even owned a set. :rolleyes2: Thats just my 2 cents.

I down on the 20's+ because most of them, that I see on the roads, look like crap. Not all, but most.

I think Jose's AAS Taurus should get 20's. The gooood kind. :chili:

:rofl2: lolz you made me crack up. Anyways I suppose your right. But he was sayin that it would burn up the tranny from the extra weight from the rims.. Which is complete bs lol if your tranny burns up from rim you have bigger problems. :dunno:

no offence but i second that notion that 20+ wheels are fugly. i personally don't really like chrome wheels period and 20+ wheels have more chrome to "show" off. just a preference tho i like painted alloy or polished but no so much the chrome. if u have run 20+ on ur ride before why were they not rubbing? did u replace a part or something?

The only way its going to hurt the trans, is if the tires are rubbing on something.(Includes your face)

:rofl2: only reason I rubbed was cuz of 4 people in my car. One was like 170ish one 150ish one 180ish and my 290ish big ass plus about 200 in audio equipment.. lol of course the tires in the rear rubbed on bumps but all i did was adjust the pinch bolt on the rear struts and that gave me 1.5 to 2 inches :mj_banana:
