Wheel/suspension question

I am currently rolling on my stock wheels and at the stock ride height. They are 19" and 8.5" wide with 245/45 19 tires. I am looking to buy 20" that are 8.5" wide up front and 10.5" wide in the rear. My question is, will I need to modify the suspension to accommodate the larger and wider wheels? And if I decide to lower the car at a much later date will I still be able to do it?

Hey BT,

Great question! Luckily, you will not need to modify anything with that wheel setup. They will bolt up no problem.

Although, in most cases, it is recommended to lower your car after going with a larger wheel setup as you will learn to hate the wheel gap you will get.

Let me know if I can be of any help!
