Congrats, FusionGirlie...

With a 20 (anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is right), you can't possibly get a tire thin enough to offset the increased width of the rim, so you're talking about a larger overall diameter.

This has several effects - first, your speedometer will be off. Second, your odometer will be off. Third, running an extremely thin tire means much harder ride quality. Fourth, the increased diameter may or may not physically fit, and even if it does, it may be prone to bumping. Fifth, most likely you're talking about a considerably heavier wheel, unless you plan on spending a lot of money (and even then, with a 20, you're probably going to be somewhat heavier).

Personally, I wouldn't recommend larger than 18's, but I know there's people on here that do have 19's and 20's, so it isn't that they're impossible to do.

Be very careful with the offset of the wheel you get.

Welcome FusionGirlie and good advice MZ6. I'm sure you can find some to fit, but 20s on a 4 cyl don't sound like a good idea to me. Way to much weight, which will kill you mileage and performance, not to mention stiff ride. But they will definitely look good. I still have the factory 17s, but I think 18s would work without to much downside.

Hey Girlie,

Welcome to FCC! Save money on wheels and go with an exhausts. Magnaflo has a good one I hear and I will be going that way.

Hi there! I want to put in an exhaust but being a 4 cyl it may sound funny.. I had a Mustang GT that sounded great with the Magnaflow. But that was a gas guzzling V8. What do you think? Do they make them where they are not loud but give some performance?

Sorry I thought you had the V6! Magnaflow has an exhausts for the 4 banger but I don't know what it sound like, sorry.  Magnaflow claim more perfomance like 7h.p.
When you get time check out there website.  www.magnaflow.com
