How tall a tire are you going to get?There seems to be not much room between the wheel and the front of the wheel well.

20s

Hi, went to local tire shop and was about to get a rubber for my 20" rims. The guy told me that the rims are to big for XB and i will have problem like a year or 2 with the suspension, struts shock and so on... he was saying that XB isnt suppose to go big tires as the supension isnt build for heavy rims and i need to do camber adjustments etc. Does what he's saying hold true? Does anyone have this problem with XB on 20s? Thanks...

If you're lowered and aligned the 20's will be fine. Just as long as your alignment is in spec to begin with. Sure it wasnt meant to handle 20" wheel weight but it wont break your xB. with anything it may cause premaure wear on brakes and hubs but thats with any wheel.

Just do it. Toyota sells 19" rims for our boxes. From what I've heard, the OEM brakes are designed to be "comfortable" with 20" rims. I think wheels is one area where Scion actually thought about us customizing our cars.

to me it sounds like this is a shop that will be out of business in a few years because there scared... i paid less for my 20s with tires than most of the people on here paid for there 16s or 17s... so if it messes the struts or shocks up in a years...woooooppppiiiiiieeee i dont care. :cheers:
