No one ever said that NO set of 20s would never FIT on the car...... for the guy who has 20s, whats the load ratings of your tires?
[/b]
Philter, you can't save people from their own stupidity. There's more than enough information on this site supporting the fact that 20's are an unsafe application on the 6. That's really all you can do. If someone wants to be an idiot and put 20s on a 6 anyway, why stop them? Darwin's law goes into effect at that point.

Check out post #8 in the link below

I have found that some people saying the load rating on 20&#39;s and the 20" tires
are unsafe are running 17"s with a lower load rating than my 20&#39;s :P

Err...Wheel load ratings are independent of tire load ratings. Bringing wheel load rating up does not compensate for the lower rating of the tire. In other words, improving the structure/materials/construction of a wheel to bring it up in load rating does not improve the structure/materials/construction of a tire nor the tire&#39;s load rating. Sure your wheel is rated to carry the car&#39;s weight, but your tires still aren&#39;t up to snuff.

Mazda6 requires a tire with a load rating of 91 or higher. I agree with you, some people are running tires on smaller wheels that are insufficient and we scold them all the time. The difference is there ARE tires available in 17" that have sufficient load ratings, however to the best of my knowledge I dont know of any tires in 20" that have sufficient load ratings........ although something new could have came out in the past few months that I could be unaware of as I dont spend much attention looking at 20" tires.

Err... OK... I never said anything of the sort, but I do agree with you.

Thanks.. I have no problems at all with what you are saying..
I only had a problem with the other guy scolding me for having 20s when my stuff was better than his
(Higher load ratings on both wheels and tires).. :P

Like I said, this is how I bought the car...
Maybe I only need a lower load rating because of the weight that was saved when the original owner bought the Carbon Fiber hood

Take care

So, exactly what size do you have on there? What is the load rating? Also, what brand and model? You keep saying you have the proper load rated tire on your car and I have my doubts.

Wha??? Did I miss something? I have never even once said that I have the proper load rating...
If you saw me post something I didn&#39;t type, please let me know

If you are interested in the load ratings of my wheels and tires check the link I posted at the top of this page
