-Harder on the brakes
-Tires are Pricey

I Love my 20's with 295/45 's. Play with the pressure. Start at around 32. I find 35 good for me. You can find a sweet spot and still get good mpg. If you are going to tow add a little more pressure to the rear when you do. Less sidewall remember. Couple more pounds should do. Post some pics.

I love my 20's and the bigger the tires, the softer the ride so if you are going low-pro better get some good shocks.Darcy

with the low pro tires the ride will be rougher, but thats about it. it may hurt MPGs if the rims are heavier than stock. as for the front end parts wearing out faster i dont think you have to worry about that.
