Ericsson BBS Pic Request

Does anyone have pics of these 20" wheels on a car that isn't lowered? Preferably ZCP E92.

Thanks!

It's going to look like a donk. These cars don't wear 20's well anyways.

If you have stock suspension and not lowered to the tits, then 20's look pretty bad on this car. It looks like muffin top.

Yeaaaaa you're going to want to drop that otherwise it'll look ridiculous. The fender gap will look a million times worse because there will be less rubber, and a large wheel.

Front needs a tiny drop but the rear is great.
However handling is no good when the front is lower than the rear because the rake would cause it to understeer more.

Here's my Ericsson offset 20" LM-Rs.. look how terrible 20's look

















I do agree with everyone else on the "no drop".. it will look weird without one.
