That makes sense, then. I'm not a big fan of 20" wheels on our cars when performance is a consideration, but, on the other hand, I've seen lots of new Camaros at the track on 18" setups and they look ridiculous (in a bad way)! They look like they're rolling around on casters or stroller wheels. The slab-sided design of that car and the huge wheel arches make it look silly with anything smaller than 19", especially at stock height.
