w211 Wheel fitment experts help!

Wheel fitment experts.... I need your help..

ok so I have a w211 2004 e55 amg stock height / stock fenders currently (would probably star lower at some point after I find wheels)

I am looking at 2 sets of wheels with the following specs

One set is:
F 20x8.5 +35
R 20.10.5 +35

the other set is:
F 20x9 +30
R 20x10.5 +35

Will either of these fit the car?
Without modifications?
What size tires would not rub and be correct for this setup if they do fit?

LM7 ran the following specs found in this thread....
F 20x9 +25
R 20x10.5 +45 (After he shaved Vossen's +42 spec)

Comparing your rear 20x10.5 +35 means your rear wheels will be 10mm further out than his, which are already pretty far out. I doubt they will fit, especially after lowering.

Play around with this offset calculator to compare other wheel specs you find in this forum

This car has got to be one of the bigger pains in the *** to find wheels for that I've ever had. From the Dust caps in the hubs, to the brakes clearance, to the limited offsets in this bolt pattern.

Sosa no rubbing? 10.5 +35 with 295's sounds pretty aggressive.

Yeah it pretty aggressive. No rubbing after an aggressive role in the back and cut a small piece of the lining. I found that driving in sport one is better than comfort bacause of the stiffness.

Did you have to roll your fenders? Or anything to that nature. Also what tire size are you running?

Yeah had to roll and slight flare the rear. I used a fender roller kit. Since then I have been able to get a 20x11 35et with a 295/25/20.
