They are Avarus AV1's
with 35mm offset
6.18" backspacing
and 5-114 bolt pattern

I am hopeing to order them in the next week or so I just wanted to make sure they would fit right.

I'm sure they will fit right, although for tires i'd go with 255 45 20, that seems to be the size that will make it the same height as the stock tires.

He didn't call them rims! *swoon* :kneel:

Our bolt pattern is 5x114.3, but I'll assume some significant digits were left off that description. 35 mm offset is the same as stock. 255/45R20 is closer than 245/45R20 to stock, although 245s will work if you can find a deal on just that size.

Thanks.
My friends dad owns a custom Tire/Wheel shop, so I can get a good deal on just about anything that hes got there.

i think... dont quote me on this, but i think 245 45/20 is a more common size than a 255 45... i've got 245 45 and usually when i price out 20s for customers w/ suvs thats usually the recommended size from my distributors.

255 45 20 is a pretty common size, at least when I search for them, there's a plethora of choices. I just got 20's and was contemplating what tire size to get myself. 255 45 20 has alot of tire choices, but I was also contemplating 245 50 20 because I can find them for about $40 cheaper in price.

245 50 will be tall. it will throw your speedo off more and you may or may not rub slightly on. you wanna keep close to the overall diameter of your factory size. google "tire size calculator" and put your factory size in the spot and 245 45 then change it to 245 50..

245 45 is 28.7" in diameter
245 50 is 29.6" in diameter

thats almost an inch difference and about 2" in total circumference. you're speedo will read slow, which means you'll be going faster than you are reading.

I know it will be off, I used those tire calculator deals already, but I feel the 245 50 20 will still fit because some people who have said other tire size have fit were slightly bigger then that tire. Like I said the 255 45 20 is the tire that is almost identical to stock size, I can find a decent tire in that size for about $139 each, the 245 50 20 I can find for $98 each. All depends on how much the wife says I can spend really.
