    Default tyres size question...

    Hi all.. I'm thinking about some new rims but getting stuck with tyre sizes. I'm looking at either 19s or 20's but don't know what widths to go for and what tyre widths suit...

    Just been to local wheel people..most manufacturers can only supply 20x7.5 with 225's(obviously just looking at thier fitment list) and only have one or two designs if any...I'm wondering if I had the rolled arch lip treatment whether I'd beable to go for a 20x8 thus increasing amount of styles available or can anyone recomend somewhere where they know their stuff.
