Here are the specs:
(F) 20x8.5 +?? 245/30/20 <- update offset tomorrow
(R) 20x9.5 +40 285/25/20
Unknown manufacturer, but they are one piece replica Brabus VI wheels.
Pirelli PZero Nero 90Y
They replaced the OE 17s with 255/40/17 Falken RT-615K all around. The ride quality is about the same. But cornering is much different. It's a different car with the larger wheel, wider tread patch, and less sidewall. I don't have sidewalls, but plan on buying matching blank (flat) ones. I'm also not able to spin the tires off the line. I do feel a difference with braking. I knew it would be different, but now I can't understand how people drive cars with 26" wheels and drum brakes. I have a great feeling the tires will rub, so I think some shaving will be in the close future. No rubbing currently. I haven't had a heavy load in the rear yet, but there is no rubbing during bumps and turning. They have decent brake and front hub clearance. But I can not wait to lower it. The raised height feeling is really weird for me. It honestly feels like a different car while in the driver's seat.
Either way, questions and/or comments please. Thanks.

If the raises height is a problem then drop it low lol. I just put coilovers on my car and I love them. if you dont like the way it drives tho it might not be a good idea to put rims on it. Doesnt look bad but some coils and it will look a million times better
I was originally looking at new shocks and Tanabe GFs. But I figured for a few hundred more I could just buy coilovers. I don't mind the harsher ride quality that much. I love form, but I also love function.
**Might be complimenting everything with a set of mufflers with S2000 AP1 exhaust tips and replica TTE front lip by next week.
