with an open style wheel like the R's,
you need proportionately larger brakes to fill up the wheel...
otherwise IMO it looks 'tacked-on'

those 20's need e.g. a 14" Brembo 4-piston setup

i dont see why they wouldnt fit t-birds seem to have bigger fender wells then stangs and they clear on them. If anything just run a low profile which should be expected since its not a truck and at the most maybe roll the fenders for a little added clearance. Only other thing i could say is more then likly u couldnt lower it with them but u never know till u try some on a t-bird cause i have seen a stang on 20's and was lowered 1.5 inchs.

I still think 20's are too big.I see to many cars with these wicked tall wheels that are too narrow for the height.It's a personal decision in the end though.Pimp on with your own bad self.
