Recommendation for aftermarket parts

Need to change worn out tires and thinking to replace rims at the same time. Any good recommendation for good priced 20inch rims and tires? Do not want low profile tires if possible.

Was at Euro Auto and was recommended not to change to 20inch as that will add strain to the ball bearings and will wear out fast er than usual. Anyone has so I lar experience?

Also thinking to change the rear black plastic bumper to something more contemporary. Any recommendation?

No worries. Not so sure about the ball bearings, but so long as the rotating mass of the wheel does not vary greatly, I don't suppose anything should be adversely affected. Usually rims are heavier than tyres so when you upgrade your rims, say from 16" to 20", there is a large increase in rotating mass due to more metal in place of rubber. Of course, it depends on the design of the rims and the actual material. You might actually reduce the rotating mass if you choose a good lightweight forged rim (or magnesium if you are crazy enough) but the costs will be crazy too.
