Hello,
I'd like to have those tires on my car but needed to make sure they would fit. If so, any accessories/mod is required or not ?

Front - 20x9.5 rims with 275/40/20 tires.
Rear - 20x10.5 rims with 305/35 20 tires.

What shall i check about the fittment of the rims when purchasing ?

Thank you

That's exactly what I am doing Wisconsin Bob. I found a vid on youtube and the guy says it is no problem. But I'd rather be sure 100 percent before committing a purchase.

Here's the vid

What's off set ?
Offset of the wheel is the distance between the mounting surface and the center of the wheel. A big positive offset might have the wheel stick outside the body of the car and a negative offset the wheel might not fit due to brake calipers or suspension. So it's quite important, not just the width of the wheel.

Explained here:

A person, I doubt it. A LOT of people have hack work done to cars. Do it right from the beginning, or you'll be trying to sell them again. The numbers are stamped (or should be), on the back of the wheel. Get those numbers, go to DT, and see if they match. VERY easy.

Most generic wheel/tire places will only recommend stock sizes. If you go to a specialty performance place they should be able to help you.

Correct but flip-flopped. Positive offset brings the tire closer in to the car, negative sends it out.

I posted a link of a guy who did it. He responded to my comment saying it is no problem. What do you guys think ? He's not a reliable source ? I really like the look of his car and I'd love to do the same.
