Default Help Please! 98 es300

I own a 98 es300 its my first car and dont really know much bout maintanence and crap. I just bought some 20 inch rims with tires that came when purchased. 1st off my studs are short so i had to buy extended lugs to fit the rim. 2nd i put the rim on and it seems to look as if its rubbing on the spring and doesnt fully fit. do i need a certain tire size, kit, or what?

Anytime the wheels hit the suspension, that's a no go. Looks like you're going to need to run a spacer

Sounds like it isn't the right fitment for the car period... need specs on the wheel - width, offset, and tire size to give you any more help...
