I have 20s and the ride is actually a little better than my stock 18s. Although I do have it lowered 1 inch with FRPP springs. If you want better performance with them being that large get some 4.10 gears or if you are thinking supercharger down the road get 3.73 gears.

turning isn't really the issue with a taller rim but a wider one like I have will change your turning. Im running 315s on the back my rims are 11 inches wide and 9 inch wide for the front. this causes great traction almost too much. the wider the more the turning changes.

Search the forum this as been discussed quite a bit. 20s won't make a huge difference. The smaller sidewall on the tire will increase road feel.

also if you do 20s you are def going to want to lower it in some way or another. the fender gap is much more noticeable with 20s for some reason.
