20"x11" Rear Wheels -clearance to lower control arm

No speculation please...

Looking to move on 20"x11" rear wheels. Have installed Spohn rear lower control arms and currently the space from the inside of the factory rim is approx. 1" to the control arm.

Addding the wheel size mentioned above - will I have clearance issues?

I understand about offset but lets 'assume' that the offet is correct to bring the wheel to the outside and under the rear fender well lip.

Any one have experience with this and can advise... thanks...

We have no clearance issues with our 11" and we changed our trailing arms to BMR.

I'll measure a factory wheel vs the Forgestar tonight when I'm home. Most of the time, those suspension parts are beefier than the OEM stuff, but add no interference issues. I've yet to hear about any control arms interfering with wheels.
