19" front, 20" rear?

I'm looking at these wheels from AM.
Staggered Super Snake Style Charcoal Mustang Wheel & NITTO INVO Tire Kit - 20x9/10 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

What do you guys think about going with a 19x8.5" front and a 20x10" rear?

I'm torn between that setup, or going with 19" on all four or 20" on all four.

Any opinions?

I could never figure out why they do that on the GT500's, makes no sense to me.

I am a fan of the 4 square philosophy and probably going with the 19 x 9.5 SVE Drifts all the way around, having said that those SS wheels rock and will look awesome on your ride.


You just won't be able to rotate them, then again there seems to be something wrong with my GT because it keeps wearing out the rears much quicker than the fronts

Nothing wrong with your car. There might be something wrong with your right foot or just plain having too much fun. It is difficult not to.

Depends on if you are interested in handling balance. What you are proposing will increase under-steer, but maybe that's not a concern for you.

20" certainly look cooler, but you'll be happier with the 19" tire prices

I am more partial to the second rims the OP listed. Personally I think 18" or 19" rims (depending on how much the car is lowered) look best on our cars and 20 is just too big, especially on lowered cars. Regardless though, if you are going staggered make sure to get a 19x9 or 20x9 in front, and not 19x8.5 like most of american muscle's 19" rims. I don't understand why they do this. When staggering you really don't want to go more than an inch difference, unless all you care about is straight line performance. Also the 9" width in the front will help with handling.

I've got 19" all around on my Crown Vic. Most people just notice the "cool rims" until they really look and see they are oversized. And with the wider width, I can do my canyon carving with a breeze. Yup, she is set up for slalom and road racing.

I just ordered 20x10 and 19x8.5 from AM. Not sure why they don't have the 19x9 but I'll live with the 8.5...

You aren't driving the corners hard enough.

How do you think my car would look with 20" black mamba black chrome wheels? And lowered 1-1.2" front and rear.
