Tirerack.com recommends 245/30/20 with 20x8.5 wheels. You will find many threads that discuss this subject in the tires, wheels and brake froum.
Most 20s here are 245/35s. They will be larger than the stock size so there will be some potential rubbing depending on your wheel offset. If you lower the car, the 245/35s will also give you a little more ground clearance, especially if you have a kit on.

It really depends on your taste. Some likes it slammed and tucked. Somw just want to reduce the fender gap. There is also the issue of ride quality. There is also cost. Are you planning on just shocks and springs or you want to do coilovers? Let us know more about what you want to do with the car and we can give more specifics. There is also a plethora of info on lowering with 20s if you do a quick search.
