    Rim size for my 2005 STS

    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!

    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...
