Found this on Facebook. These are the Atlas Crossport wheels with 245/35/20s on coilovers. I love the look of the Atlas wheels on the Taos. Seems to be the "correct" size and gives it some presence. Asked if there was any rubbing or if he was running spacers. Waiting on an answer.

It's either Atlas wheels of these. Probably depends on what I find on Marketplace. I'll keep everyone posted!!!

Response on spacers and rubbing below.

N- thank you. I can't imagine you'll have any issues with that setup. Mine rubbed a tiny bit in the front at times but only when turning and just barely touched the edge of the plastic trim. It's pretty low in the front though. No spacers needed

Are those stock springs ?

Looks good! Does this affect the mpg (or L/100km) calculations?
The overall diameter is very close to stock, so the calculations should not be affected much.
The mpg may actually go down because of increased rolling resistance though.
Call me old fashioned ("You're old fashioned!") but after a certain point it starts looking silly to me. Those 20s are past that point. And is the ride really still any good?
You're going to have to run those at ~42psi to match the load rating of the stock 225/50R18 at 36psi. Yes 36 psi is for max load but running 20s much lower than 42psi will make rim damage much more likely.
