Look around craigslist or for sale sections on the Liberty forums. Most people ditch the 20s and upgrade to 16s.

Most people go for the offroad look. Smaller rim lets you have a larger sidewall which is better offroad. You can air down more, less worries about bending a rim(that goes for on the road too). Generally 16s will ride better than 20s because of a larger sidewall. But 20s will give better handling on the street though.

Oh I think tires are generally cheaper for the 16s as well.

Lots of difference between handling and over all ride comfort
20s ride like a brick, 16s way better ride over all
20s and a 38 inch tire maybe , 20s and a 29 inch tire never , too much like a wannabe tuner

^What he said. You really should go for something smaller than 20s IMO. I have them on my Jet and it makes it feel like I am riding on the wheels all the time. Also, it forces the suspension to absorb EVERYTHING since there is barely any give in the rubber band tires.

The only reason I still have my 20s is because I want to go with bigger tires when I get new wheels. And due to the price of the proper lift kits to clear said tires, its going to be a while until I get them.
