I would not want less sidewall than this, so putting on 20's would have raised it another 1/2 inch. The rears fill out the wheel wells perfectly, but the fronts could use a 5 to 10 mm spacer.

Nice pictures! You mentioned that if you put on 20's, it would've raised the sidewalls up about another 1/2? So then the the tire from the ground would be 2 1/2 in height?? I would have thought the sidewall would be less if you went with a 20". Or am I wrong?

One other question, if you make a sharp turn onto your driveway, once the front tire hits the sidewalk and your steering wheel is still turned, how much left over clearance is there? A picture maybe. =)
