large diameter wheels

Is there a real benefit to the driving and handling with say 20 inch tires for someone who is not a race car driver? All new cars today come with bigger and bigger tires and rims.
Every time I drive in a car with those big rims with low profile tires the ride is so hard my teeth rattle.
Am I missing something?

I absolutely agree with you and think it's for "aesthetics" - not that they add any. I understand that the trend is going towards larger cars, but other factors should also be considered when design takes place. If you're interested about wheel fitment and spacing/offsets, take a look at the link below. Great, general knowledge to have.
