I personally prefer 18"s but OEM reps in 20" would be reflective of the preference in wheel size I guess!

I think that yr opinion, my experience is that cars generally ride better with a higher profile tyres amd smaller rims
but as the "saying" goes....if its makes you happy go for its

ps .....when i swop my 18"oem last winter i notice a difference in ride straight away from my summer 19" oem (even though there is only 1" diff in size).
