Depends on how much you want to spend, and how much your willing to roll guards. I'm looking at -24 17x9.5" fronts, and 0 17x11.5" rears!

What fits a boxcar SHOULD work on an EF. the size of the tyre is the biggest issue, along with offset.

What offset? If they are a 0 offset, then they should be fine.

I've got 20x9 on my EF, 245/30/20 on the front, 245/35/20 on the rear.
38mm adapters, not sure on the offset of the wheels.

but they all scrub on the guards.

all comes down to the height/camber and offset.

i had no trouble on 20's on my old ef fairmont.

8.5 inch fronts bolted onto hub adapters.
tyres were 225/35/20.. also used 225/30/20's..

lipped the guards still due to dumpage..

If they clear the upright, they should be fine with rolled guards. I assume they are a +6 20x8.5

I know your set on 20's, but it would make more sense to go even 18's because unless your buying super light weight 20's your going to be adding excess weight to the car and slowing it down. Depends on what you want I suppose, looks or power.

i got 17's for go and want 20's for show if that makes sense, only plan on using them for public appearances..
