20 x 8.5 +15 offset

Will i be able to fit these on my 95 Fleetwood with 245/40/20 tires with no rub. I know our offset limit is -10 to +10 but I 've been looking for rims for a minute, and really like these...I 've seen 22x10's and even 24's on our cars so in my mind I feel like I'm good. However, I have never truly gotten a good understanding of offset...

Limited type 900 20x8.5 +15 offset

I bought them this morning so I hope the work...Any good tire recommendations?

I'm thinking the general g-max as-03 as they are pretty cheap and fairly well reviewed.

i sell rims tires and car audio stuff the ones you picked out would be like $950 for rim and tire and they will fit no rub with 245 or 255 35-20 tires

Thank you ...although I worry if 35 will be enough meat to handle such a heavy car...did you recommend 35's because 245/40/ 20 will run into rub issues or is that what you usually put on b/d bodies?

you should ask this question in the wheel and tire section. You should be right on point with your intended setup. the 245/40 isn't any wider than the proven 245/35, just taller and you have plenty of room for that. You could even run a 245/45R20.
+15 offset is perfect. You may need to trim the back of the skirt latch assembly, but thats about it.
