I think the 19's that came on my Equinox are a bit too big so I'd say no go on the 20's myself...

In my opinion it's a question of looks versus comfort. 20" rims may look nice (beauty is in the eye of the beholder), but with less rubber the tire is harder and it provides a harder ride. Remember that the tire plays a part in the suspension system. Also, I don't know the conditions of your roads where you live, but if they are as bad as where I live (Montreal) and you hit a pot hole, there is a higher chance of blowing your tire and recking your rim with 20" tires, than if you have 19".

20”? Why? It’s been done.

Get outside those wheel wells and go where no man has gone before: 30”.

And don’t forget the sticker for the window.

Thanks for your opinion, well I'm still deciding whether to go with bigger rims or just sticking with the 17's and just switching to a/t tires 65 aspect or going 16's on a/t tires with 70 aspect.
Or just go stock 19s from an SLT OR DENALI.
So it's a decision between LOOKS<RELIABILITY & COMFORT

I'm from Yellowknife northwest Territories btw. So yeah we got rough weather conditions as well.

Wanna switch your stock 19s with my stock 17s? LOL

Haha I thought about getting some 17's off of a Terrain actually but, I kinda decided it wasn't worth the hassle... For frame of reference my Silverado has 18's and pretty beefy tires so that's what I'm used to...
