Rims what to get

Looking for a nice set of rims with the biggest lip possible, any suggestions??? 19" or 20"? FYI I live near F***ed up streets lol. Staggered or non staggered? Need advice on which way to go, what to look for...

Thanks

My advice - if your streets are that bad, don't get any wheels that require you to run a tire with less than a 50-series sidewall. Buying rims gets expensive.

That will however limit your options in plus-sizing.

dont bother with 19s or 20s then. they look good, but you will either be replacing rims and tires like no tomorrow, or drive excruciatingly slowly.

in NYC/NNJ, go with 18s or maybe 19s with upsized tires, bump the aspect ratios to 40 in front and 35 in the rear.
