    Check out Intro wheels website They make some awesome styles in custom off-sets. In order to do a stagger wheels set up your going to need to spend the money to have them done right with a custom offset. I'm like their Vista line with the satin finish on the spokes.

    I think that 19's or 20's would look great on an '05, those huge fenderwells need to be filled up. As said before, just be careful in your wheel selection so you don't make it look like a pimpstang. I don't have a link to it, but if you guys have seen that BF Goodrich ad, they have some beautiful 20's on an '05, I don't remember the make though. For you '05 owners considering the wheel-swap up to 19's or 20's what is the weight difference between the wheels you are considering and the stock rims? Aren't the big wheels going to be one helluva lot heavier, making a dramatic increase in unsprung weight and thus negatively affect the handling? Are there ultra-lite big wheels that take the weight factor out of the picture? Just curious.

    I would go w/ 20's, 'cause 19's are such an odd and uncommon tire size. They usually end up being more expensive. Either way, they would help fill up that wheel well and look good doin it at the same time.

    I saw the Saleen with the 20's in person last weekend and sat in it hella cool man. but go for 18s or 19s. twentys really look to huge and you do loose performance. But at least you are getting wheels. THATs Downs.
    :nice:

    Judging from this thread, it looks like this is a fashion question, not a performance one, right? Because only one person mentioned unsprung weight, and not one person chimed in about handling.

    Maybe this should be in the Exterior Modifications forum? I don't see any Tech in the question... ?
