a "will it fit" type of question.

im looking to buy a set of staggered xxr 521 wheels. 20x10.5 +30 offset rear and 20x8.5 +32 offset front.

my question is if those will stick out to far?
and if so how much camber will i have go run with if i get all fenders rolled?
i also would like to know whats the widest tire i could run on those witout rubbing being dropped about 2in. front and 1.5in. back?
and please dont tell me to stretch tires because that is just not safe for a daily driver around here.

basically all i want to know is whats the widest tire and rim i can run with least or possibly no camber while having rolled fenders and being dropped 2in front and 1.5in back.

thanks guys

Why 20's? If they were 18's you might be able to fit them but not with out running more than -3 camber in the back and a stretched tire.

No way you can run that without stretching. And I'll pass on rolling on rubber bands.

That sentence makes no sense. Your ride height determines whether you will scrape, not the diameter of your wheel.

If your train of thought is that bigger tires will provide you with more ground clearance, you can apply that to any size wheel. You can run 245 45 18 to gain maybe a 1/4" more ground clearance over factory spec size but you will have more issues with rubbing.

I just want the fender gap to dispear n who I said scraping everywhere I ment bumper wise not tire to fender yo. Bigger rims raise yur ride up more n with 20s on there n the car lowered just to close the fender gap it'll still give me enough ground clearance to drive witout worry.
