Should I put the 20's on one of my other cars and get 22's for the Intrigue?

I like the rims but they look a little small on my Intrigue. Should I put them on one of my other cars and get 22's for the Intrigue?

I think you should keep it that way. Looks really tight and I think those are a nice size, but thats just me.

If I were you I would lower the car rather than getting bigger rims. You may not want to but w/e.

Do You Realize Each Time You Go To Bigger Rim, i.e. Exp. 15" vs 17" Rim (Wheel) It Takes That Many More Revolutions To Turn Wheel Each 1 Turn Of Rim...

Food For Thought, i.e. Not That Concerned About Gas Mileage @ $4.60 Gallon Corn Fed Cheap 81 Octane Gasolina...

I Know Wheels Look KOOL - Huh! See Photo Although I Bought New Different Mag Wheels I Always Kept The Same 15" x 8 1/2" Size...

Only I Went To Much Wider Rim For Road Stability...

Not true if the overall diameter of the new tire size (17") is the same overall diameter as the original size (15")

For example, I just ordered a set of 20's for a customers '99 Chrysler 300 M......the stock tire size is a P225/60R16. By going to a tire with the same overall diameter (245/35R20) the tire height remains the same, thereby keeping the speedomet accurate and ABS functioning properly.

heres something to think about even tho your old rims wont fit on your new car, but here goes, i dont know how that body moulding on an intrigue is attached ( bolts or sticky shit) cause you wouldnt have to lower it if you bought 22's and removed the side trim, it would change the spacing on your car and im pretty sure it would make it look pretty syck
