I found a good bump in performance going from 08 285/55-20 to 265/60-17's SS/T 17x9 rims.. These rims weight around 25lbs ea. where as I believe the 20's were close to 40lbs.

PS. Those little tires will look funny on a QC. You would have to lower it way down to make it look better.

It's a steel hood by Refflexion. It is oem quality and needed little to no prep for painting. Years ago there was a black 3g that had one and I was instantly taken by it.
Thanks,

Redtruck has a bit o new look now sitting on 20" wheels. These rims weigh just under 30lbs and with a tire that also weighs 30 lbs I believe it is a great combo weighing much less than other 20" wheels.
