A 255 width tire is way to skinny for a 10.5 inch wide wheel. It'll look terrible. At least go with a 275 width.

I'm not certain, but I think that would be too much sidewall to fit in these wheel wells.

I used to run a 255/35/20 on my 20x10.5 +35mm offset and I was slammed on h&r race springs on stock sport suspension so it's like 1.5" drop and I had to have the fenders rolled and have some negative camber. So it really all depends on offset.

I ended up putting some lil spacer blocks in the rear springs and went down to a 265/30/20 and straighten out the camber and I like this set up better. Also I only added the spacers in the springs to boost up the rear a lil cuz of the weight of my system.
