Shopping for Rims...need some advice.

Well summer's here and I'm in modding mode. :)

After my dear hit a couple weeks ago, I've been trying to bring my E back to life with some style. I've detailed the inside and outside, added the OEM door visors, and just put some 50% tint on the front windows. Now, I'm in the mood to shop for some rims.

I found some rims that I like:

They are Avenue A603 rims and I'm stuck on what size I should get. On one hand, I want something that'll really fill out my wheel wells and I've seen a lot of EOC members with 20s that look good. On the other hand, I live in a rural part of Iowa and commute in every day so I was leaning towards 18s for a smoother ride both on the rough roads by our house and for the highways when I drive to work. I just don't know what size to go with.

I'm not lowered and I don't plan on it, so I'm wondering if the 18 x 7.5 rims with some meaty tires fill up my wheel wells or would I have to go with 20 x 8 rims?

Any advice?

I 2nd the General Exclaim UHP 235/55R18s. Fills the wheel wells better with no clearance issues (on a non-lowered, non-SC at least), ton better ride the the 225/55 Eagles that they replaced.

As said before, the speedo no reads spot on (used to read over actual). Handling is much improved.

Note, though, the UHPs are summer tires. If you need all seasons check out Continental ExtremeContact DWS (Ultra High Performance All-Season) or Yokohama Parada Spec-X (Street/Sport Truck All-Season). These are the best overall performance/$ in an all-season.
