Default Ride Quality On 20's???

I'm looking at a set of 20's. Is the car going to look bad if it isn't lowered?

Whats the ride like going from stock 17's to 20's?
Noisey? rough?

Depends on your tires. The car will not look bad of its not lowered.

The ride quality won't be as soft but it's a very minimal difference. Just gotta take speed bumps a little slower and no curb hopping and you won't even realize you have 20s.

Yeah, depends on your tires and how you drive. I went from stock 17's to 20's and it's not that much of a difference unless I'm hit large bumps or something. Only thing I noticed is, when I get down on the gas, my car pulls to the right, but I do have heavy wheels.

for me 20's on stock springs with nexan n3000 tires felt like stock 17s
on tiens soft yet still stiff if you got hard on it
and on progress pretty stiff and sporty but if you get a good sized bump it kills

They are bumper protectors and if you live in NYC you need those. People will bump your car to know they went back or forward too far and then start to pull out of a parking spot. You see this on a lot of cars in NY. Keep in mind that I lived in CT and knew this. Cars in NY are treated with no respect and every single time I passed thru that state I bent wheels. The highways going to the GW bridge is the worst. Potholes and a few craters or chunks of the road are missing in some spots.
