A lot will depend on what kind of tires you get, and what suspension upgrades you make (i.e., better shocks/struts). I will say that a Cadillac will ride pretty well no matter what, but 20" rims I have seen on cars generally lead to more complaints than positives, esp. if you live in an area where flat, non-potholed roads are not common.

just make sure the tires have a nice high sidewall. The handling will suffer a bit, depending on how heavy the wheels are, but my bro has 22" SRTs on his Dodge Ram, and it still rides fine. Now, you'd have a problem if you tried to put on those ridiculous "donk" 30 inchers...


no offence but 20 inch rims suck on any ride the damig your suspension and they make a crappy bounce ride i sugest leaving them stock 4 the best feel

Depending on suspension pkg, base, sport, or soft ride. All math regarding tires, suspension ,and brakes should be upgraded
