Can I see a pic of your car they way it is? I have the Pro kit also, and I'm trying to figure out if 20's would look good, or if I should go to 22's. I have a set of 20's that I REALLY like, and they don't make a 22 for that wheel. I'm just trying to see if I should find 22's.

Turning radius won't really change..as you're not changing the overall diameter etc of the tire/wheel combo much. Some folks say the 22's make the ride a bit stiffer, but I didn't really notice a big difference, mostly because the my 22's are wider and ride over more potholes so it stayed about the same. Handling will change a little bit as will performance as the bigger the wheel, weight usually goes up as does rotational mass. It's not a huge power guzzler, but it's a difference that you can feel.

I don't have a pic... its at the body shop still tuesday....

I can tell you that it looks freakin killer lowered on 20's

The only reason I thought 22's was b/c some dude I met was gettin his 300 repo'd and I needed new tires, he was sellin his combo cheap.

at this point, lowered 1.6" on 20's is perfect.... especially with the 255/45/20 tire...
22s would prob sit up in the wheel well.. after a day or so of thought.. I wouldn't do it...
Stick with the 20's.. I'll see if I can sneak a pic on monday or tuesday for ya..

Thanks!

My stock 18's even look okay with it lowered which is why I thought that the 20's would be fine. Plus, I really like the style of this wheel I found, so I think I'll go witht he 20's. 45 series was what I was thinking about going with, as I live in MI, the roads are shitty, and I drive a lot for work.

Thanks again for the info and coming pics!

Def. go with the 22's. I just took off 24's, the rims in my sig, and had the pro-kit on. I'm back on 22's with the pro-kit and it sits really nice. Here's a couple pics with 22's and the pro-kit.
