Here is a car we just finished for one of my good customers Dad.

Its a new 2010 650 Convertible.

Wheels are 20x9 and 20x10.5 Asanti AF120 3piece. Brushed Face and Chrome lip. We went with 255/35/20 and 285/30/20 tires. At the customers request, we also lowered it with some Eibach springs. It should drop a tad more once the springs settle in.

Funny thing is that when it was finally finished, and car was sitting on the ground, we all agreed that he should of went with 21's like we were originally discussing prior to getting the wheels. Lol. Oh well, there is always a next time to upgrade to another set of shoes.

Yes. Pics were taken literally right after the springs were installed. Needs to settle in for the full affect.

Looks good! I think after the few years of 22s, 20s is a good way to go, but only if you DUMP the car beyond belief lol...

21s woulda been better for sure. 20s look small and it needs another 1.5-2 inchs tuck some tire

It should look even better once the springs are settled.
