Looks great, I like the 20 over the 22. How much does the wheel/tire weigh? I imagine the handling is improved , how bout ride and noise? Is this a summer only tire or A/S.

What is the name of the manufacturer? MC2? FZ6? Please clarify, as these are nice wheels. Love to know how much they tip the scales at.

Is this your car, a brochure shot, or a good photoshop job?

Cool.

How do 20s with 45s compare in height to 18s with 60 series tires? That is my major concern. Tire store told me that 18s with 60 series tires are actually almost an inch taller than 20s with 245/40 tires. I don't want to have more wheel well exposed, I want to fill it up. Thanks for your help, Ron

I'm fairly certain bob meant 255/45R19, not 255/45R29, as that would set another new standard for ourageously sized rims. Sorry, bob, but that caught me as funny. Great mental picture of a C on wagon wheels!

Just bought a set of the FZ7 (Magnum) wheels from the dealer - Dodge or Bellevue (Wa) for $2,500. They came with 265/45R20 Pirelli Scorpion Zero's. At that size they're 0.76 inches bigger outside diameter than stock. I was a little worried about that, but they seems to fit. And they really fill up the wheel well, which looks nice. And the dealer made the appropriate adjustment in the computer so the speedo would be right.

It's amazing how much better the car looks. I was worried that I wouldn't get the "bling" without going to a 22, but man, these look good. There was literally a crowd in the service bay looking at the car when they brought it back in.

The ride is definitely better (no bumpier, and much less "floaty"). Cornering is much better. Not sure about accelleration yet. With the bigger and better quality tire you can't break them loose, and that was really my only metric for stop to go accelleration.

My only concerns are that there is a bolt sticking down above the inside of the front tire that now only clears by about 1/4", and that it doesn't look like the tires are going to make it inside the rear wheel well if they compress that far. I guess we'll see.

Sorry for the poor quality pics and dirty car.

Love these rims, MC2 search doesn't provide and details. Is this for real? If they are actually functional on the "C", I am interested. Seems the thread is a bit dead though.

Bob, those are perfect. It's not gaudy -- I would say that there is no bling about that. It just looks sporty. (Too me, "bling" means tasteless.)

Yup, just sporty.
Excellent look - interesting to hear that they cause no discernible negatives on the ride/suspension side.
Sweet!

Is that a typo? Should that be 245/45R20? If so, what brand of tire is that because both 225/45/20 and 245/45/20 is not made or brand new?
Yes, it was a typo. It is a P255/45R20 Toyo Proxy ST's, they are also working on getting me pricing info for the same packages in Goodyear F1's.

Sorry for any confusion.
