19" Alpinas would own.... I'm not a big fan of 20's , besides when the tires wear out it will run you way over $1000 to replace the tires.

you can go online to www.tirerack.com and choose your model car, they will show you what rims they have that are available for your car. They will even show you what your car would look like with the rims. If 20" show up as available then you can put them on your car and have no issues of rubbing at the same time you can maintain your current ride hight. Remember that 20" rims will make the car ride a lot rougher... a lot. If you think there is a difference between stock and your 18" wait till you get to 20". another web site to try is www.discounttiredirect.com... also great places to order your tires for a fraction of the cost then you would find at the local tire store.
I couldn't own a car like that, there are too many speed bumps and road irregularities where I live. So easy to crack rims and damage suspension components. I personally think those rims are 20's though.
