Re: Comparison and feedback on 18" vs 20" wheels

^You're forgetting about wheel+tire weight.

I'd take the 20" 5 stars over and of the other choices including the SRT's which IMO are too busy.
I like simple with clean lines. Easy to cleanup is also a plus.

This.

Even the 18s are a bit worrisome when it comes to curb rash for me. Of course I was used to my 35" tires on 17" rims I had on my H3

Larger wheels plus tire combinations typically weigh more than smaller.

In this case, the 18 inch Michelin Latitude Tour weigh 36 lbs. The 20 inch Goodyear Fortera weigh 34 lbs. I expect the 20 inch wheel to weigh more than 2 pounds more than the 18 inch wheel.

I agree that the differences in weight between the two will be very small.
