try a new car. lol not trying to be an ass, but just dont put 20s on a cobalt. you could go with a nice set of 18s and lower it. that would be much better.

Our cars are not "donk" and never will be. Get 18's, anything bigger is just horrible on a cobalt

I agree with them. Please dont put 20's on the balt. I mean its your car and you can do as you want but its just not ever gonna look good. Our cars were designed for 18's honestly.

Get 18's and lower the car. Dont lift it even higher lmao

225/30/20 lowered or 225/35/20 stock...

Stock height on 20's your car is going to look like a 4x4, the brake calipers are going to look tiny as hell and with the added weight of the wheel and added diameter, you will feel that the car is slower, your speedo will be off and you will be adding stress to the factory suspension components. I disagree with everyone else tho, Personally I would not choose to put 20's on a Cobalt but if done correctly they can look great and tasteful.
