20's...

Are you guys absolutely sure that they won't fit, even if you rolled the fenders and all? confused wink

You MIGHT get them to fit, depending on your suspension setup and if you rolled the fenders.

But you'd have to get such ridiculously thin tires that it wouldn't be practical for daily driving.

For show, maybe.

My 19's, with 215/35 tires.

You might could pull it off, if you don't care to turn.

Well, if you wouldn't be able to drive with them daily, then I guess they're out. 19's would be the best bet I guess. frown grin

Even 19's are pushing it. Look at Trojan's car.. he has 19's with 35 series tires. That's pretty thin if you hit a pothole frown

Haha I wouldn't call 19s a best bet. Nobody stocks the tires, and the best price I could find online were $160 a piece. Bit of a loud and rough ride, too. ...though I don't hear or feel it anymore, personally.

They're lookers though. wave

No sarcasm. That was a serious question since they were a consideration.

The airride suspension just makes it go up and down?

Well, performance is the last thing that I care about, so it wouldn't really matter. But yeah, 20's would definatly slow you down a lot. spineyes wink

$160 a tire? Heh, that's less than what I paid for my yoko's.

And a 35 series tire isn't that easy to destroy. I've lost count how many times I've hit a pothole going 35mph+ & nothing has happened grin

How much would you could drop the car with them? Or would the wheel well almost be gone with just the rims?

IMO, 20's are just too damn big for the celi. They look great on suv's, but they just aren't meant for this car! rolleyes

I've been thinking about it and I think 19's is what I should really go with. 20's will probably be a bit big and impractical. spineyes

To fit 20's sucessfuly, you will need to remove the plastics in the wheel wells and probably trim the fenders to fit them, not just roll them; Material will have to be removed from the fenders, and the sharp edges will need to be rolled. You will also need to add fender flares, you could do it, but it would take some tweaking.

Needless to say, your speedometer wouldn't be accurate anymore after the swap, and the sidewalls on the tires would need to be so short that You'll be sweating bullets just thinking about potholes.

Personally, I wouldn't go bigger than 17's, anything over 17's is generally considered overkill on our cars.
