    That changes things a lot because it adds to the offset. A 4 to 5 lug adapter would need to be 20mm thick meaning you have to take that off the offset of the wheels. So to get a final offset of +20 the wheels would have to be +40.

    If it's +40 without a spacer/adapter it'll sit inside the arch. An offset of +20 will be flush with the edge of the arch.
