    Are you looking for 20s or stock 18s? Or perhaps 19s? 40mm offset is perfect for 19&20" rims. Stock offset is 55mm for 18" rims.

    I am running 20"x8.5" rims on all four sides. This way you can still rotate them front to back and make your tires last longer. Some people like the staggered fitment(wider rims in rear) but once you do this, you can no longer rotate the wheels front-to-back. My offset is 38, but you will want 40 instead. 40mm is the ideal offset, I have some rubbing issues because with my lowering springs, the 38 offset makes the inside tire rub against the plastic fender liner. I had to insert rubber spacers to give it more clearance.

    For tires, I am running Falken 245/35/ZR20. Great tires. The best place to buy any thing is on ebay. I just bought two 20" tires on ebay for only $126 each with free shipping. Not to mention no tax charge.
