Hi there,

I'm wanting to purchase a set of new rims for my 05 STS. I would like to put a set of 20s on it without having to do any modifications. I need to know the following:

bolt pattern
offset
tire size

that will fit without the need of any modification. I've been looking into it and have found a 5x115mm, 38-40+ offset, 245/35/20 tires but I'm not sure if thats right. Some people said 35+ will rub but looking online stores say that the 38-40+ offset wont fit? Really needing some help! Thanks alot!

Car looks great man but I'm really wanting 20s. Trying to keep the same rolling diameter

How's the ride though? I'm thinking 20's to avoid a rough ride and to avoid getting dented.

I'd say a 2005 STS has a far tighter performance-tuned ride than a '97 Deville. Opinions vary.

Compairing a Deville to an STS is like comparing an F-18 hornet to a Boeing 747...
