Those of you running 20x10 275/40's on the front...

...can you post some pics? I'd like to see how close to the edge of the wheel well they are and what the stance looks like from the front. Thanks!

Are you looking for stock wheels only? Wheel offsets vary from manufacturer so some fit much better than others.

Stock or non-stock is ok. I just want to get a general idea what they look like on the front.

I'm no wheel aficionado. I put my faith in the guys at CCW so I can't tell you the specifics beyond the wheel size. Here are the descriptions from the invoice. Do they tell you anything?
20X10 SP16A 6.75BS BRUSHED CLEAR POWDER
20X11.5 SP16A 8.15BS BRUSHED CLEAR POWDER
My understanding is that CCW will build them to your specs if you want a specific offset. Or... give them a call. I'm sure they could tell you off the top of their head.

Question: do those fatter wheels at the front dampen steering feel? I was thinking about doing the same on my car, once its here.

Good info. They list backspacing.
From my calculation,
(RW/2-BS*25.4)
RW=rim width
BS backspacing
25.4 = conversion from inches to mm
the fronts are 44.45mm off center
the rears are 61mm

Can anyone tell me is this seems correct?

Your math looks right...but the rim width is actually where the beads of the tire sits (unless those specs are an outside measurement). So you may want to add about an inch for the overall width.

Thanks for hte tip. Perhaps it better to just tell a custom wheel vendor to use the backspacing measurement and let them calculate the offset.

The front offset is 32mm
The rear is about a 46mm
