will this size rim and tire fit our car? im confuzed with the offset.. i kinda understand but kinda don't - off set is 25 rim size is 20" bolt pattern is 5x 114.3 which i think my current rims are. Rim width is 8.5j

20" rim
25 offset
8.5j width
5x4.50 or 5x114.3 bolt pattern

what size tire would be good for this someone told me a 225/30 might be good... any input????

hahahahaha no it wont fit.

20's are pretty dumb in my opinion but you aren't asking.
the offset is totally wrong. it's going to stick out past the fender like a hotwheels car
that width could work with the right offset but you're chancing it. 7.5 and 8 is best for our car.
you are correct...our bolt patter in 5x114.3mm or 5x4.5"

Offset still too low, and I'm not sure there's room for an 8.5" wheel.

Example: I had 7.5" 17s with a 42 offset, and my tire was out beyond my front fender lip by about 1/8 inch. 35 offset is still out in the weeds.

better but that offset isn't so great. look for something between 42-48 if it's an 8" wheel

i wouldn't put an 8.5" wheel on this car.

pm shibby69 and see what he has on his car. he's got 19s but im not sure what width and offset.
