Get 22's...20's look tiny on such a huge car...You get 20's you'll be really disappointed....I have always seen 22's on CGT when people go aftermarket
Go to this website and see for yourself.................Lots of pics

I am trying to decide whether to go with the 20 inch rims or the 22 inch rims. What are the pros and cons of the car and the rim sizes? All help will be appreciated.
can you post pics? i've been looking for a color combo like this one! thanks

I was driving my friends Bentley CGT last night around DC. I liked it alot more than I thought I would (very comfortable and more responsive than I had expected). The girls go crazy over this car too. I was parked in front of a lounge for a little bit and every girl that came out said something about the car. I thought I got alot of attention in my benz, I was wrong!

Benjamin Choi will become famous soon enough
anything less than 22s will look... weird. 22s are proportional.

I ordered the rims on monday. I won't tell you guys what I did until you look at the pics if I can ever post the damn things. They may be on by Friday. I didn't do anything daring, so don't expect the extreme look.
I'll tell you what I did after you shoot me with the comments, or complaints. The porsche guys complain about the numbness of the AMG's, but after driving the GT, the 65 makes me feel like I am driving a turbo golf cart. The difference is like night and day, but the GT part the sea's upon site.
My wife and I were trailing each other, and when we stopped at our guy that does the hand detailing, I heard this horn blowing. These two chicks in a M3 followed me to ask me what kind of car it was, and asked me could they see the inside. My wife was in the 65 in front of me staring in her rearview mirror. I told them that they could see the inside once I finished taking care of business and they left. Thank God.
This car will get you in trouble if you are weak, or wanting.

Oh just curious when you want to stop BS'ing everyone about your 2 cars. Not that anyone cares what cars you drive, but you have asked for help and received it in our neck of the woods, and we would like to continue to support you wether it be in your wheel choices or my sending you Mike Romano's contact info in your quest for engine upgrades. But PM'ing for my email to "help" you post pics because you need "formatting"? Im not the type to flame you or get mad, but you wasted my time here and on MBWorld, please dont waste others. So yes in my polite way Im "calling you out" until you post pics here (doesnt matter). Please respect the fact that this is a forum for serious car enthusiasts.
