Hello!

For the summer i was going to use the wheels from my old car but they wont seem to fit in the rear.

The rear wheels i have are 20x10 ET43 with 275/30r20 tires.

The wheel is touching the plastic parts on the inside, seems to be too wide.
Is it okay to cut some of that plastic?
I also tried buying spacers 15mm to make them fit but the studs are too short.
I would love to use these vertini wheels that were really expensive and have no real second hand value. Is there anything i can do? Has anyone successfully cut away plastic from the rear to make their wheels fit? Or put longer studs with spacers? What ET shoild i be aiming for? I can probably fit 5mm spacer to make the ET 38 but will that help even?
 
My 20x10.5 wheels are ET 42 and that would not clear unless I put on a 6mm spacer making it ET 36. I also had to zip tie the wheel well liner in order for it to not touch the wheel.

Did you find a solution?
Can you tell me your front offsets? And which rim brand / design? I’m looking into something with a concave effect myself, and the requirement of an ABE (for German TÜV).

2x10.5 - 255/30/20 - ET 36

I will be putting on spacers to get a lip to fender fitment as well as lowering.

You can get better specs than this, but I bought these for a bargain used so I have to work with what I have.
