Bought these 20” wheels and tires from my local Discount Tire store. Here are the details in case you want to look at them for your K5.

Wheels:
Brand: Liquid Metal
Model: Splice
Dimensions: 20” Dia. X 8.5” Wide
Tires:
Brand: Nitto
Model: Motivo (all season)
Specs: 245/35/R20
Total price was $1,714.98 out the door including mounting, balance, install and taxes.

The 8.5” wide wheels totally fill the wheel wells perfectly. No interference at all or rubbing. As if these were made specifically for this car. I could not be happier with this purchase. Here are some pics:

Hi,
I too would like to know if the 20s causes any issues when going over bump, does the tires hit the inside? Also how is the steering wheel does it shake alot?
The ride will be a little more harsh due to having a thinner sidewall. It wont be soft on rough roads compared to thicker sidewall. The damage to the wheel will depend on you. You can swerve around potholes to prevent the wheel hitting the ground. Any tire can be damaged by a pothole if you hit it hard enough when driving. In short, any pothole is worth avoiding.

Bigger wheels wouldnt make the wheel shake a lot. That would be caused by suspension bushings and bearings. If it happens when braking, then its warped rotors. Tires hitting the inside will be based on width and offset of the wheels. And the width of the tires
