For big brake kits? I don't think so. Someone invented 20's (and larger) so that people with too much money and no taste could put them on cars and make them ridiculous looking. And why not bleed people of their cash if they want to be stupid with it.
Case in point:
P.S. No issue with them on appropriately-lifted trucks.

Wow just WOW that is terriable but i can still pull off the 20's or 22s but the owner of that car should be shot hung and burned

Surreal, shortly before I left the states, I saw a 94-96 Impala. It had to have been lifted at least 6 inches and had what looked to be 28s or 30s on it. I wanted to cry.. and laugh.. and cry again.
And one of the BBKs I was looking at had a min wheel size of 20. I'm not getting that because I don't want to run 20s on my offroad set. So I'm going to plan to get the ones with the min wheel size of 18. And as far as even my daily wheels, I personally wouldn't go over 20. I like having A/Ts show.
To Be Completed (Eventually):

A BBK for 20's is likely intended for racing? I'd think so.... but I could see it getting use on 37" tires -- a tire size that might actually justify 20's or 22's and also provide adequate protection for them off-road.

That's what I was thinking, but I don't want to go beyond 35s for a daily. Even if I went with 37s for the offroad set, on 18s that'd just be extra sidewall. Though I did come across a Long travel suspension I'm tempted with. And some 37s and a BBK requiring 20s would sure make that thing fun in the desert. Now I'm just getting crazy though.

Thats way I'm doing a SAS, I want to run 37's or 40's.

I found a couple of trucks that were running 37s on the front IFS with a long travel suspension kit with 13-14" of travel. That's what made me start thinking. Obviously it's not cheap though. And they were 99-06 models. I've gotta believe the same companies could do something similar for a NNBS though.

I wouldn't even consider running 37's on IFS; that's asking for trouble.

That's what they were running with the 37s.
And that's one of the trucks. I just came across it because they had an offroad magazine at the PX with a GM truck on the cover so I had to get it.

but you have to remeber thats a long travel kit its not the same as a list kit plus you have to get fiberglass fenders to get that size tire and its is over 6 grand by the time you by the lift shocks and if you cant do the work yourself you will also have to pay for labor
