That would mean you'll end up with extremely little rubber around them.
Just see to it that the total diameter isn't increased to much.

The width of the rim is determined by the width of the tire.

20 is doable, but if it recomendable is another issue.

Agreed. I have 17s and love them. I have seen people with 19s but never 20s. The 19s had problems with rubbing too. I think the 19s look too big for the car and look weird.

17s rock. I was planning to go 18 only because I wanted a BBK. Stupid 993 Turbo brakes don't fit under 17s.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

I don't know how 20's will look like, just stick with 18's IMO (as biggest size)!

I believe you can do 19's but 20's would be far too difficult than it is worth. Watch the width but you'll probably need to roll your fenders if you havent already done so.
