So did you stay with 20"? If not what size wheel and tire combo did you go with? Also any rubbing issues so far?
yea, stayed with the 20 but bumped to 8.5" width with a 255/50 tire. I considered a 55 tire but when we pulled on out to compare, I had some concerns it may rub on the suspension in the front. no issues in the back. Zero rub issues with the 35 offset. heres a side view.

Also, going with this setup, its nearly the same OD as the stock so it doesnt affect your speedo read.

Any shots from the front or rear of how showing far the rubbers sticks out now? I'm interested in what this vehicle will look like with the fender flares and guessing some adjustments to the offset will help widen the stance.

I like that blacked out look but want the nice ride of 17". Thought about just painting the 20" for that look, like someone else did here with his 18". Changes the appearance of the stocker's a lot!

the 20's actually ride great and the handling itself is 10x better than a 17". the key is to buy good tires. if you want quiet and smooth, you cant go wrong with Michelin

Planned on Michelin Cross Climate 2's. Not planning on any slaloms with my Ltd but do want a softer ride. Besides we have soooo many potholes here it's a joke and they love to eat 20's. 😁😋

Are those Black Rhino wheels? Don't have an SC yet, but those are the wheels that caught my eye already.

Since this deleted post was still sitting here, I will post this hand made chart for wheel offsets in relation to the INSIDE and OUTSIDE positioning to the stock OEM rim edge position.
Rectangle Font Pattern Parallel Net

Although it's based on a stock OEM rim with a 49.5mm offset like all the documentation shows, the actually stock OEM rims are stamped with 51mm offset. That small 1.5mm is nothing to worry about.

I installed 18x8 +35mm offset rims which moves the INSIDE rim edge outward 9.65mm (0.38") and the OUTSIDE rim edge outward 22.35mm (0.89"). I setup a formula to do the detailed calculation, but the simple chart works fine for guvmint work.

FYI: 12.7mm = 0.5"

Are they the Mozambique model? Having trouble getting any info from any of the wheel sites since they either don't have any of the Cruz info or, since it isn't stock size, they say it doesn't fit so they don't give any further info either.
Use Hyundai Palisade - same size for 18” and 20” offset, bolt pattern etc…
