I went on discount tire and bought Mandrus 23’s sizing at 20x9 +32 offset just seeing if anybody else bought these wheels before and if they had any issues fitting

the website say they fit my vehicle

Post results and pictures when you get them mounted. I've always felt a 9" wheel would be better suited for our tire widths. Especially when you size up to allow Michelin available sizes to be installed.

I think that is a bit much. Stock tire I think remains a smallish 235 to this day. I went up to 245's (45x19) and those are fine on 8's. I'd prefer an 8.5 to allow more performance options for lower sidewall/performance for those wanting it, and it would allow a 255 width. Not sure why you'd go more with this smallish AWD that grips very well? At least as factory standard, plus the added weight, this isn't a monstrous v8 that does not care how much weight it has to launch. Pounds matter with sewing machines. :)

From my perspective, keep in mind I live in Colorado, so when winter comes, this car is used in snow, albeit minor snows since I work from home and I don't want the added expense/hassle of 2 sets of tires, so I run 245 conti ultra high perf. all seasons.
