if your going to put 20inch wheels on it, have u already lowered your car to have it on, cause if u have then it would be a waste of time even thinking about 20 inch if u havent then would consider it but most likely u would have role or flare the guards.

i put on a set of 17 x 8 ROH wheels and i had all the trouble in the world when it was lowered, had no trouble when it wasnt lowered but then again i got the wheels before lowering which was a stupid thing to do well thats wat i have heard anyway

You should be able to fit them on. If you have already rolled/lipped your guards, then the only other problem will be the offset of the rims. They may rub on the ball joint of the suspension or the guard if your car is very low.
Get the wheels, then lower it, but make sure the guys doing it, lookout to see if they rub at all when they are doing the job.

got the car lowered first, to superlows mind you. then put the 20 x 8.5s on it. had to roll the front guards. After all this the car was still hitting the guard pretty bad when i turned about 2 turns of the steering wheel. could still go over speed bumps and driveways without scraping at all due to the size of the rim. but i got lows up front so that it can do full lock circles. Tyres are 225/35/ZR20s probably should be phatter on the back but ah well....
