Re: buying rims and need help
As Blayne said, NO, a 20x10" +20mm won't even be close to fitting.
I'll re-post here what I've posted in other threads in which the OP clearly had no frickin' clue what they were asking...
There are tons of websites that explain wheel fitment. Arm yourself with the knowledge and then you don't have to ask for help every time you look at another set of wheels. None of us is going to know the pertinent information off the top of our heads - you can google for it just as easily as we can. Bolt pattern, wheel width, offset, and hub bore are the things you need to know. If you’re trying to play around with wheel fitment options, you need to do some learning first. Play with this some - http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp. (ET is offset.) Tire Rack also has plenty of wheel tech on their website.'05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, 19x8.5/10" CCW T140s with Toyo Proxes T1 Sports (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...

That is a fantastic wheel guide. Best one I have seen yet. To the OP, it's not just about if it will fit in the wheel well. There are many other things they look at for fitment. You have to think about the wheel well, being able to turn lock to lock with a wider rim. Not hitting the fender and bumper when turning. Clearing the calipers. Stress on the knuckles going with a wider wheel etc. you change even one aspect at all and handling characteristics change dramatically. Like I said, if you wanna go 20".....great, but try and stay as close to a 8.5 wide and 35 offset as you can. I will say that if you need to push the limits, there are the 2 parameters to watch. Width and offset. You can go with a 9" if you like but stay at the 35 offset. Or, go with a 32 or a 40 offset, but keep the 8.5". Stay as close to the basics as you can and there won't be fitment issues and you will be happy![COLOR="Silver"]
