245/35/20
That'* the key to no rubbing. Select the correct width and aspect ratio.

235/55/17 = 255/50/17 = 245/45/18 = 245/40/19 = 245/35/20 = 27" Outside diameter tire.

Stock is 27" so depending on how much clearance you have around your stock tire at its extremes.....

We have been through this before, to each his own and everything.

With that said, IMHO...20'* look a bit on the large side. I do not mean anything negative towards anyone with 20'* (especially GAMEOVER). From what I have seen though, 17s and 18s to me look very tasteful and nice, without being ghetto. IMHO, those are the perfect sizes for the wheel wells and such.

Not saying it is a bad idea, but just make sure you really really think they will look good in real life before you drop the plastic (credit card).

Don't forget wheel offsets also.

Yes offset is very important.
If you keep your stock wheels, the offset of +34 mm, will remain unchanged no matter what tire you install.
If you upsize to an 18-20" wheel and the width of 7 1/2" stock doesn't change, then your offset should be stock.
If you go wider, and I would recommend 8" wide, then your offset might change but it'* not that significant a change.
