JADEDaddy73 Posted February 5, 2010 Report Share Posted February 5, 2010 I got the 20x10 & 20x9 Alcoa's put on this morning. I couldn't be happier. They are just massive and they really fill the wheel well. They just look right. They are menacing to say the least. Shocking is more like it. I was just staring at the setup for almost 10 minutes. I got Nitto 305/35/20 555R's for the rear and Nitto 275/35/20 for the front. I also put the Baer/Shelby branded Extreme Plus Front and Rear kits. I can't express just how happy I am right now. First thing I noticed aside from the massive size of course was the difference in the ride. The Nitto's surprised the heck out of me with a really nice ride. Very comfortable and quieter than the stock 18's. Second thing was the handling. I know that the 18's are supposed to handle better but I really feel like the new wheel /tire combo is a better setup. WAAAY more grip for sure. Also it feels like it handles and certainly corners better to me (Brakes I'm sure are also helping this). I am not on a track so this is just my street based assessment. Third and most importantly the Baer Extreme Plus brakes are just nothing short of magnificent. I want to test them from 60-0 to see where they fall, but the stopping power between those and the stock Brembo's is day and night. I am not experienced enough as a Shelby driver to really grade the Brembo's but compared to the Baer's they aren't even in the same category. The Alcoa 20's just look awesome on the KR. I know people want to keep the stock setup for a variety of reasons that I really do respect, but I must say that I would HIGHLY recommend this setup to anyone considering the 20's. They look and feel great and they just seem to belong on this car. I agree that these should have been on it to begin with. On top of everything else my stock 18's are stored safe and sound so no worries about dinging them!. Anyway that's just my 2 cents and I will try to post some pictures if anyone is interested.
