I'm not sure you really need to go for high performance tires or wheels just because you are going to 20's, though you may be hard pressed to find "basic" models at that size anyways. I felt the CLA250 had enough power and feel for what it is, but it's not really a sports car in the sense of M/AMG/RS/Nismo/Evo/WRX/Ralliart/-V/SRT/etc. The weight savings you'd get on high end wheels isn't going to make much of a difference and wouldn't be worth the cost. If you're willing to eat the fact that you're going to be replacing tires twice a year and shattering your spine, you might as well just get the best looking ones and not worry about the weight. It's not going to make enough of a difference to make you feel all that much more sporty. Especially if you're staying with stock suspension. Whereas if you're going to go all out with the mods, might as well get the AMG. My 2 cents.
