Default Please Help Me Out With Wheel Offset

Hello everyone and thank you so much for all the information provided on this forum. I am a new member and this is my first post and I am hoping you can help me out. I am looking to buy some new wheels, but I am not very good with widths, offsets, what works and what doesn't.

I am looking at these wheels: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/20-AC...item35a1322ea6

Specs:

20 x 8.5 +20
20 x 10 +25

I could use some advice on tire size as well. I also plan to lower on coil overs for a nice tuck and I am not opposed to using spacers.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome. What info do you really need? The offsets are 20 & 25 which mean they will be sticking out pass the fenders.. As for tires you can do 255/35/20 in the rear and 245/35/20 up front
.. Anything higher and youll prob be rubbing when you go low on coilovers.

You can also run 235/35/20 upfront and 245/35/20 in rear to tuck it.. Youll prob gunna need some negative camber.

I was really hoping to go staggered, but based on what you say about the wheels sticking out, I may have to go with these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/20-AC...item35a9dfb03e

20x8 +40 all around....

Thanks for the info and quick response.

I am currently researching and found some more info.

These wheels are offered in:
20x8.5 +20,25,30,35,38,40
20x9 +35,40
20x10.5 +42
(This contradicts what I found on ebay, but who knows...)

Out of these options, what is the best choice for staggered, tuck and minimal rub?

For the Front you could go with 20x8.5 +25 I am running 20x8.5 +40 with a 15mm spacer that puts me at +25 and it sits nice and flush.

For the rear like Staggered357 said you will have to go with the 20x10.5 +42, but you might still rub. My rears are 20x10 +35 with a 275/30 and I rub when loaded on the bolt/fender were the bumper connects but only on large dips in the road. My fenders are rolled. I plan on switching to 255/35 when these tires are done.

If you rub on the fender/bumper area the. Your tire will be shredded. You're only rubbing on the inside liner, not any bolts.. Double check

Right were the bumper connects to the fender, behind the carper/liner there is a metal tab that is now exposed since the carpet has been worn down. Don't have any pics but its there..My tire is not shredded though.

Did you try to grind it? Sand it down if you can. I cut off the edges when I cut the inside of my fenders with a grinder lol

I did not try that. I thought it was the mount for the bumper so did not want to cut it. How much did you grind off.

You only need to trim down around the screw that holds the bumper.. Just barely a little bit from the outside until you reach the edge of the washer.

My rears are 20x10 +35 with a 275/30 and I rub when loaded on the bolt/fender were the bumper connects but only on large dips in the road. My fenders are rolled. I plan on switching to 255/35 when these tires are done.

i too have a 20*10 rim with a 35mm offset,
are you saying i can put a 275-30-20 tire on
that with minimal rub while loaded.
i plan on rolling my fenders and
also stiffening my springs with spring support,
do you think ill be good or
do you recommend any other tire size.....Thanks

Can't say for sure you wont rub. But in everyday driving when its just me in the car it never rubs but add my two kids in back (120lbs) and it will. The other tire size I was going to try was 255/35/20

Dont use 275 series tires without rolling fenders first.
