actually larger wheels/tires won't really have much of an impact on your suspension wear. they are considered "unsprung weight" and are not supported by the suspension.MIG6GTP said:I guess I'd be worried more about long term wear on my suspension. Have you guys ever picked up a 20 inch wheel on up? The things are HEAVY. When going over bumps and such you're loading that suspension with the weight of the wheel.
Also, quite a bit of the time you end up having to use spacers and offsets to mount such a wheel. A universal fit wheel is terrible for your car.
I know these things aren't hot rods, but you do give up acceleration and gas mileage going to a wheel like this as well. More circumference and more weight = less acceleration and less gas mileage.
You should also have your speedometer recalibrated for the new diameter in tire size as well.
