Looking to upgrade to 20's. I called a couple wheel companies. HRE said that they could make a wheel that would fit but i would have to trim some of the wheel well.
If anyone has upgraded put some pics up and let me know how they fit and what set up you went with.

Thank you,
Matt Bailey

One option to consider is running the same size 20" wheels all the way around while maintaining staggered tire fitment. Here's some examples:

20x8.5 +40
225/35-20
255/30-20

20x9 +38 (may require fender modifications)
245/35-20
275/30-20

TSW builds great models in the 20x8.5 size and I know Vossen has some applications available in size 20x9 as well. Please let us know if we can help.

I saw a gray IS-F on display at Lexus of Cerritos with 20-inch Zone 9 wheels on. It's actually posted on the Zone wheels website. Discount Tire could probably help you if you like it.

20" isnt an upgrade really. chances are your car will be slower on acceleration and braking, it will ride rougher, and the steering wont be as sharp, and you may lose some MPG. all due to the fact that you will be running heavier wheels and tires.

but i was told by HRE that i could fit a 19x9 and 19x10.5 on without any problems. that would be 255/35 in the front and 295/30 in the rear.

i've been thinking about it also. since it's parked for winter I'll probably be doing it in the spring...haven't decided on 20's or 22's.

I've seen a civic with 20s and I was shocked. When I asked the owner if they really fit, he sarcastically said "Don't you see their on?" I politely said, "Oh okay, so it doesn't rub or anything?" He said, "Yes it rubs when I turn or hit a bump." Then I said, "So it doesn't fit then!", and that was the end of the conversation...

Well no I'm not retarded. I'm sure we'll figure something out. I was crazy enough to go to school for 6 years and get my doctorate in pharmacy but I've never been accused of being mentally challenged.

Maybe by the time the weather changes here in NY I'll have some pics to post up. I'm not saying 22's for sure, but at least 20's.

Hmmm...22s...You may be able to find a way to stuff them in there, but WHY????? You would loose a lot of performance, and in my opinion it would look ridiculous. But then again - to each his own. If that's your thing, have at it.
