I think it looks pretty cool. I was warned against going to wheels greater than my 17" factory wheels because the side wall becomes almost nonexistant and very stiff and makes the wheel and tire prone to dammage on bad roads,pot holes etc.

The guy who I bought the wheels from Dan, said he felt the ride quality was rougher with the 18/20 set up, but he did have a 2" lowering kit also.

I've only had them on for a day but I think I can tell that it has increased road noise a little but as my suspension is standard, the suspension movement and feel seems relatively un-altered.
