I just put 20" rims on my 2006 SS. Here's what I did...

20" x 8.5" rim w/ 255/35-20 tires with a +40 offset.

I do get a little fender rubbing in the back, going over big bumps, but once I find a shop with a fender roller, or I'm able to rent one, that problem should be gone. They just barely rub, not enough for any visible effects, but you can hear it.

Anyway, I think you can go with any offset from +35 to +45, but if you're going to go with the +35 offset, I would go with 245 tires.

Hope this helps.

I don't see why the basic body type would be any different for either model of the 2006 Impala. I think they all start out the same, but maybe someone else in this forum would know for sure.

The body lines on the SS are no different than the other sub-models. The fenders are interchangeable between the SS, LT/Z, LS.

Offset is basically how far your tires/wheels will stick in/out in the wheel well.


CORNY40...those are HAWT wheels! Nice choice!

FYI - I retitled the thread (added "on '06") and moved it into the "Wheels" subforum. I also deleted the other thread you started with the same content.

BuffaloSS is right as far as body lines. but if I am interpreting your question properly, you may be asking a slightly different question.

the "body type" as you put it MAY have some affect if say, you had an SS. the SS should have a stiffer suspension, which should translate into less bounce and less movement of suspension components, so you may not get rubbing, when on a lower model, with a slightly sponyier suspension, would have more travel of components and would get rubbing.

when you're trying to fit rims and wheels that big on a car not intended for them, it gets tricky on what will work and what wont. CORNY40 has found a close size, but like he said, he still gets some slight rubbing. so his rim dimensions should give you a proximat idea of what sizes may fit, but you may want to take into consideration his slight rubbing and choose a narrower rim/tire.

We weren't trying to dissuade you from getting 20s, so do what you want. 18's would look good too. Throw out some ideas of what you're looking to buy...style-wise.

To be on the safe side,....this is what I usually do when i'm upsizing wheels for customers. An easy way to tell if a certain size will fit, I check out tirerack.com . Choose your car, find the size rim you want, and see what size tire you should go with. Beats guessing. Laughing

Thanks for the compliment Buffalo SS.

Yeah, Tire Rack makes pretty good recommendations, conservative, if anything. They're system wouldn't recommend 255's for my car (Discount Tire did), and it wouldn't have hurt to listen to them...but I love wide tires.
