Hi guys,

I need your advice. I have been offered rims from my friend they are Gima rims 20x9jj front and 20x10.5jj both +38 offset. I personally was torn between 19" and 20" but reading through many forums I concluded that 19" are better due to potholes and humps. As I still couldn't find an affordable set of 19" rims and my friend is offering me 20" I am considering taking them.

I have a 2013 v6 not lowered, will be fitting new koni adjustable struts soon. Will these rims fit on stock springs? Thinking tires 255/40 or 255/40 front and rear (advice)

While I'm personally not a fan of 20s on these cars, that isn't a reason for you not to run them if you like them.
I can tell you that a 10.5" wide wheel with 38mm offset is going to poke outside the rear fender slightly.

Those are hideous. I'd wait.

Chances are the minute you pull the trigger what you want will come up for sale. :snoopy

I have 18x10s with 275 width tires. I recently installed the Koni STR-t struts and shocks. While the car handles like it is on rails crappy roads are down right embarrassing. My Super crew Ford rides smoother. I can't imagine what 20s would feel like.

Pass on em..they look horrid. Looks like rubber bands..with no sidewall.

A 10.5" rear rim with a 38mm offset is gonna stick out a mile from the fenders. A 255 mm tire won't even fit on a 10.5" wide rim. A 255mm tire on a 9" rim is already stretched 1/2" over it's measuring width.

A 285/295/305 would be better suited for the 10.5" rear rim....but still won't work, since they would be sticking a mile out past the fenders.

Look for either 18" rims....or 19".

I agree with the rest. Those wheels would have to be professionally cleaned and powdercoated to even remotely look good and by that time, you could have just bought another set of wheels. Black Friday is just a few months away.

I've had 20's on my 2012 GT for 10 years and have had ZERO issue with them. No one that's ever ridden in my car has complained about the ride. Actually, they all say they are surprised it rides as good as it does considering the wheels/tires and how low the car is.

20x9 and 20x10.5 wheels
255/35/20 fronts
305/35/20 rears

I wouldn't be scared AT ALL to put 20's on these cars, they look great IMO. However, those wheels, IMO, don't look great.

The concern about the offset might be valid though, I don't remember what the offset is on my wheels. Just because the wheel bolts up to the car, doesn't mean it fits.
