Did you try a search? Simply type in "18 inch wheels". I got this from that search and there are many more: check it out . . .

20's are no problem. It's finding 20's in a width that'll fit! the best street setup i've seen is a 20 in the rear and a 18 in the front

It depends on 2 things going any bigger than 18". The first being is it a daily driver and how are the roads ( potholes ) in your area. I have a friend who lives in the NYC area running 18" He has bent 2 rims in the last 6 months. Even though the bigger rims look great depending where you live it can be very expense to replace rims. Something else to consider the bigger you go the worse the ride. There is allot less sidewall to adsorb the shock. If you have ABS and traction control it might not work properly with different size wheels front and rear. Really do your homework before you decide what you do Hope this helps

20's have a problem with clearence with the lower spring pertch on the front struts. There are a few ways to get rid of the problem but check the clearence with the wheels you select before you put out the money. 19's have enuf clearence to run OK.
