So I recently bought some 20 inch Camaro rims for my Malibu. I know. Harsher ride, mpg may change, Speedo recalibration may have to happen, etc… I’ve seen people ride on these and I have a friend who has the same car with the same rims. And honestly aside from a few things, there is not many changes between their car and mine in terms of ride quality and handling and the bumps in the road was not a deal breaker for me. All of my rims are 20x9. I recently tried putting them on with 245/45/20s and my front two rims didn’t fit. So my question is will low profile tires do the trick, will wheel spacers work as well because I’ve come to terms with the effects of those, or is it both? Because the place told me that I would need 15mm spacers for those. And this custom rim shop looked at the rims and said that the tires are way to big and that I will have to get low profiles. And if I still need spacers, I wouldn’t have to get as big of a spacer. He also said while staggered may look nice, I would want to get the same size all around being that a FWD car does not need all of that. It isn’t a sports car which I completely understand. I don’t want Whitney, my car, riding weird. She’s been good to me thus far and has barely any issues.
