    No, 19"s are about as big as you should go.

    are you looking for performance or looks. it its looks go for the dubs but if your looking for performance then some 18"s or even 19"s would be good

    Re: 20" rims on a mustang

    those rims look really good! However, i would never put them on a v6...sounds stupid but the same thing goes for a v6 camaro...

    good taste in rim but if you do go that route def get a 1 1/2 drop....that would look killer...

    NO...DO NOT PUT 20 INCH RIMS ON YOUR MUSTANG!!!

    I also have a 2000 V6 and I would say if you want bigger get some 18's. 20's just look awful. Just go with the 18's and get some nice Eibach springs. I am either going to go with Eibach or Steedas for my mustang and will probably go with the black fr500's. 18x10 in back, 18x9 in front.

    Re: 20" rims on a mustang

    go for the 20's! i work at a tire shop and we've put some 20's on mustangs just like your's that have been dropped. it takes a little modifying of the fender wells, and inner fender lip...but it is well worth the effort.

    now on to the v6.....

    Re: 20" rims on a mustang

    People who say they will rub = idiots.
    Also, please keep in mind, 90% of this website, are people that are PROs at posting their ideas on what is going to work or not, KEY WORD, IDEAS.

    I ride on 20x8.5" Gen X 'Matrix' wheels, with a +38 offset.
    On 245/35/20 Kumhos.

    I can ride almost all of the way down in the back without scrubbing, and I have to keep 60psi in the front to keep the front from rubbing.

    It does not take any modifications, whatsoever, to the fender wells, nor inner fender lip to put 20s on a mildly dropped mustang.

    The ONLY reason he would RUB, would be using some wheels with the wrong offset.

    He would need +35 to +40 offset wheels. +38 is ideal.

    Locally, there are two mustangs on 22x9" wheels with +40 offsets... NOT rubbing.
