Default Wheel that fit

Hey to all,
Do any of you know what is the maximum tire and wheel that can fit on an '99 Sc300. I try to buy new wheel and tires for my car. Will a 20 inch by 8.5 with 275/45/20 tire work for my car? Is it too big or will do just fine without any scratch or couldn't make me turn?

that depends on offset and lowering. from what ive heard the max in the front is 20x9 and 20x10 in the rears. use the search....this topic has been discussed a lot.

275 on a 8.5? that's a nono to me. 255 is the MOST i would put on that wheel width

275/45 20 is huge for an SC. Though technically they do fit an 8.5 inch wheel, I doubt it will fit on your car.

Default 20

245/30 20 or 255/30 20 should be ok. Make sure they carry at least 1225 lbs each tire.
