as you may have guessed. now that the yellow xB is gone, it is time to do another project.

I have a set of 20 inch wheels to put on it. any thoughts on we should do to make them fit? has anybody tried this? any advise for us?

i'll post a picture of the wheels we have when i get to the camera.

thanks in advance.

Well, with no drop, 20s work fine without modification actually. Well, 20X7.5" do anyway. I'm guessing yours are 20X8 or 8.5" though.

In that case, space and roll man. Gotta kick those wheels out a bit with OTG spacers, roll the fender lips so that they and the tires aren't at war constantly and then you can consider adding camber. Not really my thing, camber, but lots of people seem to like it.

Here's an xB on 20s that I caught at the USACi/IASCA Unified World Finals in KC. Didn't get to meet the owner though.

20s will fit, but when Chris first fit his FOOSE Stars on a lowered, w/ cut Eibach springs, BSP xB, we had to remove the front fender liners, air hammer parts of the firewall, and roll the rear fenders.

We have 20's on our yellow box....

axis seriously only removed a pencil width size of plastic on each front and hammerd MAYBE three hits to the fire wall....only sounds weird at full lock U turn .....rides like sh!t!! IMO! He has Goldline springs but the ride is back to being as stiff if not more than stock feel IMO.

BUT heads freakin turn like crazy and ppl point and stare and ask a million questions and swear you "cant put 20's on an xB!!!" :eek: REALLY??? Do you think you're dreaming then?????

Heres mine dropped two and a quarter with tanabe df's rear mud flap thing removed, front plastic towards the door trimmed and then firewall beat in with a sledge:eek: and front plastic trimmed up a little, once you get them on and drive around youll realize what minor things need to be trimmed



by the time i get my system back in the rear fender should **** right inline with the tires if not tucking them:)
