Old thread I know. But just so excited for my new wheels. 20's no drop.

Nice color combo, how wide are those 20's? The rear looks too narrow, I think a 30mm rear spacer would help. IMHO any aftermarket rim needs a drop, it looks like a pick-up truck without one.

Depends on the wheel choice. If the spokes go to teh edge of the wheel, then 20s look huge. If the spoke ends in side the wheel, then they look smaller.

Mine on 20's, no drop.

20x10.5 +25 in rear
20x8.5 +35 in front

Houston roads are horrible, so no drop.

wat width tires on da rear? those look conservative for a 10.5 ET25. looks more like 10" ET25. or even 10" ET30. u can run another 10mm spacer on the rear and wider tires.

i run nismo wheels with RE11's.. i think they were like ET23 or something and 10.5 width, but are more aggressive and fills the wells nicely for stock height.

I'd love to lower mine a touch, but swifts are too much of a drop for my driveway. I could only be able to go 0.5 of an inch, no more. Possibly Nismo springs could give that, but there is no widely documented proof of that.

275/30/20. I was going to go for 295 rear but was scared it would fit.
