I am just wondering what style of rim looks best on the 2000-2005 impala's, does say a five star in 20" look good or what other style i was also thinking the boos 318.

Thank you for all of your help.

All up to opinion. 5 spokes do look good, such as the american racing maverick, villain, sport edition kv5. Split 5 spoke looks good to as long as the spokes are close. Moda has some nice split 5 spokes. Basically any 5 spoke with a thinner spoke looks good.
I really like 6 spokes as well. Anything more just seems too much.
Then you get into colors, sizes, etc. .. Basically you just need to find a wheel you like, and it will look good to you no matter what. I'd suggest an 18" or 19" but 20's don't look too bad.
Also remember to only go with 5x115!

Most split 5 spokes look pretty good as long as the splitting gap isnt too wide. I think 6 spoke wheels look out of place on domestics, never seen one I think "worked".

I would go with 18s over 20s... better ride quality, less chance of damaging rims on potholes/curbs/construction zones/items on the roadway....
