20" Wheels ET53 and shims?

I am looking at putting a set of 20 inch, 9.5J alloys with a set of 275 Grabber AT'3 on for the winter but can only find 20inch wheels with ET53 offset which feels like they are going to rub on the inside at the front. has anyone had any experience with using shims to push the wheels out by 5mm to make the offset ET48 or is a better idea to use 20 inch 8.5J alloys with correct offset and oversize the tyres on the rims(275)?

I have 20 inch wheels and because I run 285/50 tyres needed a 1mm shim I was able to purchase a 3mm AL shim ,Works fine. Was available from local auto store . M16 SVD 4,4 HSE with a few extras, Sold R50 , Wife SQ5 , BMW R1200GSW.

Thanks IRBails, will give that a go then, I'm presuming your alloys were 9.5 inch wide? Do you know what the offset was on your alloys?

Will 275's fit on a 8.5?, was looking myself but my research led me to believe that 275's are for 9.5s. Might be wrong though Rolling Eyes

Hi, the 275's will fit on 8.5 rims but they are a squash and just means the tyre is oversized for the wheel, I did look at doing this as the offsets are then the same but not sure if it's the best idea or not

I replace the tyres which came on the car with BFG 275/55/20 AT KO2s. Needed something tougher. No issues apparent with them after 14000kms. Both on road and off road

Mine are the previous model RRS mags, load rating was greater than the current model mags . Off set was about 3mm less than standard, can't remember now been two years. They would not rub if I ran a slightly smaller tyre. I also thought they were 10 inch but again not sure now. M16 SVD 4,4 HSE with a few extras, Sold R50 , Wife SQ5 , BMW R1200GSW.
