Installed my wheels yesterday and I am very happy with the fitment. I wanted a little meat on my wheels rather than a thin lip so I went with 255's in the front and 295 in the rear. I took several measurements before buying them and decided to go with an aggressive offset in the rear with 295's and thankfully they fit perfectly, the front's I got +42 but they rubbed on the strut, with a 3mm spacer they cleared but it was too close to be safe, so I ended up with a 5mm spacer. My dealer sourced the wheels/tires from "Get Your Wheels", they did a good job and packaging was great, I recommend buying from them.

I also installed the Maxton Design V2 front lip and side skirts.

ACE Alloy - AFF02 Black Chrome

Front - 20x9 +37 - 255/35/20 - Firehawk Indy 500
Rear - 20x10.5 +50 - 295/30/20 - Firehawk Indy 500

Weight with tires,
Front - OEM 24.6kg - ACE 24.5kg
Rear - OEM 25.7kg - ACE 26.6kg

Car is much more stable and handles better with very minor increase in road noise, ride comfort is almost the same as well.

Excellent wheel selection. What's the material on the Maxton lip and side skirt?

Sweet so I was right that a 295 would fit, which is awesome!!! Perfect setup all around and looks really good!

How is the clearance in the rear? Does the inside have a ton more room? If you would be able to give any info/measurements/pictures to somehow show it that would be appreciated. I want to see what all can be done with these cars wheel-wise and knowing that would be helpful.

Very nice! I like how they match the chrome trim on the car.

Yes it did, worth it though.

I dont have any pics, but there is little space between the tire and rear strut left. I would be more worried that any wider and the tire would rub the inner wheel well liner. Also any wider and you will need to go with 11's width so that the tire doesn't bulge and getting the right offset so that it doesn't stick out will be very difficult, it will need to be +55 or more to match the +50 10.5's that I have.

I was thinking the same
That was the idea, very limited selection of brands make black chrome in the right size.
