Rim/Tire package suggestions?

Just picked up a 2014 Limited with the Luxury II package. I want to upgrade wheels and tires without sacrificing a nice ride. I am in sales therefore I drive A LOT, mostly highway. They would just be for aesthetic use basically. Does anyone know of a reputable rim dealer? Probably looking to get a 20" black wheel so long as it does not compromise the ride/gas mileage. Any info is great thanks.

A 20" rim may affect mpg and ride quality. More rim/less tire is heavier...and less sidewall rides rougher. But if that's the look you want, that's the compromise you make.

Agreed. It looks better but I think in the long run better off with something a little smaller. Any suggestions with rim brands?

I'm so damn picky about what style I like, I couldn't limit myself to certain brands. I've got 15" Ultras, and don't have any experience with larger rim brands. But I'd say anything new that sells for less than $150 each should be questioned.
