235/25/20 is the same diameter within .1 inch. Such a size may not exist. Tire rack shows a 235/30-20 as the replacement which will read 3.8% slow @ the speedo over the stock 16 or 17. You'll also want a mig welder to reassemble the car after it rattles apart. I don't think the stock suspension (or the chassis) can handle 20's as a daily driver unless you have glass roads in Peru.

Javier you are going to learn to search and learn the subject or be lucky/unlucky learning by experience. But this should help:

An image of Louiceman's E with 20s.

IMO 18s look right at home on the E.

Thanks for all the support guys.

Ive decided to get some 18" wheels Tenzo Type M.
Using 225/40/R18 tires.

It looks great on the car. It could look better if i lowered.

Well planned out. Mighty fine advice available on here. Forum members never cease to amaze me with product knowledge and skill sets.

I have to agree with your 18" rim decision. They really set the car off, fill the wheel well gap nicely, and pay HUGE dividends as opposed to the teeth-rattling 20's.

IMO, 18's look, well, they just look sexy tucked up under there.

Nice looking wheel. Sticks out a bit. RecklessInsanity just put up some excellent images.


OMG how do you find that pic are you detective?:eek::D
I researched the hxll out of the subject. Every post and image I could find. I wasn't about to spend so much money on wheels
and tires without knowing all the facts and its not easy because of so much B.S. and mistakes to wade through. :D
