I think 20s look ridiculous on the e9x platform......but it's your car op.

Will 22s fit then without having to lift it? And if not would air suspension be better than just getting a suspension kit?

19's should be as big as you should go on the e9x platform... bags are optional...

And yes, after fitting 20s, just slam it
