Rim help.

Ok this is prolly a dumb question but ive searched and just cant quite find the right answer.

I want to get some rims and i was pretty set on 18" asa jh9 rims. Then i saw a white grand am with 20's on it and i loved the look of it becuase im afraid of the 18"s not looking good if i dont lower the car.

What im trying to figure out is. What are the pros and cons of 18's vs 20's and do i have to mod my car at all to get 20's to fit?

20's are way to big for grand ams unless you have the rksport kit or do some other drastic modifications. 20's alone will look like crap. go with 18's and a drop, it will look the best.

Yeah it's hard to pull 20s off IMO. It can be done though.
Not sure if you care, but I'd take into consideration that the 20" model of those rims weigh over 30 pounds per rim.

18s and a drop FTW basically every time.

i definately like that rim design, but yea a little too big. and not to sound rude, but shouldn't you fix up your car first before you start doing all of these expensive mods??
