Nothing matter with 20s. They look good. I roll on 19s and 20 isn't far fetched.

Some of these guys think 20s look like this. It wont.

Looks are one thing to consider, but....

Larger wheel/tire combinations tend to be heavier, which can hurt straight line performance a little. See this Car and Driver article for details:

http://www.caranddriver.com/features...d-tires-tested

On the other hand, larger wheels/tire combinations tend to improve skidpad results. On the other hand, they are more expensive.

Lots of things to consider...
