Yeah it looks good, but juicedbird you still have the baddest a** T-bird on the planet.
And juiced since you seem to change wheels more often than some people change clothes send the rest of us poor T-bird owners a set of 20s. Dubs for scrubs a new charity.

nick,
that looks very nice. Those things gotta be huge in person. How wide of a tire you got on there?


Bling bling,

Funny your not to up on rappers most of them have 22s and up, 20s on SUVs dont look that big, also the girls love it and thats really all that matters Its not overkill if you have the $ the mn12s are huge cars.

Sweeet!

So did you have to do any modification to the wheel well? Remove the splash guard, etc? I'd been told 20's would fit, but you'd never be able to lower the car. So am I correct in thinking that with 20's I've still got an inch or two to lower the vehicle?

Hey,


I got lucky they fit really close with no body mods or removing anything. Some 20s will require you to roll the inner fenders and rear metal alittle. The front is super close to the streering knuckle but it clears, I think the offset for these wheels is at
