    Wanted to get opinions on this combination of wheels and tires.

    Wheels
    20x8.5 Verde Skylon Black w/Mach Lip

    Tires: Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position
    Size UTQG Max Max. Tread Tire Rim Meas. Sect. Tread Overall Revs Country
    Service Description Load Inflation Depth Weight Width Rim Width Width Diam. Per of Origin*
    Load Range Press. Range Width Mile

    245/40R20 280 AA A 1709 lbs. 50 psi 10/32" 30 lbs. 8-9.5" 8.5" 9.8" 9.8" 27.7" 751 JP *

    The combination is pretty cheap at Tire Rack (We are a dealer with them) and I think these tires should improve handling over my OEM 19s.

    I won't comment on the wheels, but I have the Bridgestone S0-4 tires on my C6 Corvette and I think there great, far better than the Goodyear run flats that came with the car. You might want to make sure your TPMS sensors are going to work with whatever aftermarket wheels you go with.

    OK Not sure why no one likes those wheels but I guess the tires are a good choice.

    I am working on some aero discs anyway that may look something like this.

    I think 5 spoke would look better on those, BT.
