Default Tire clearance

I purchased a set of 20x9.5" Roush rims and would like to know if 245/35 20zr would clear my wheels when turning, the overall diameter is only 1.1" bigger than the stock 17" bullitts that are currently on the car.
245/45-17 =25.7"
245/35-20 =26.8"
Btw I know that 99.9% of this forum hates 20's, etc, etc, I just would like to know if they'll fit without rubbing.
Thanks for any help..

so if you know 99.9% of us hate 20's on a SN95 your hoping that .1% will read this and be able to help you pretty small # if you ask me
I think this falls into the you have to put them on and tell us category
and given that the are 20 Roush is it safe to assume that they are off a S197 and will have the wrong backspacing? So ontop of the uglyness of 20's you will also have the ugleness of the tries setting funny in the wheel well

lol no offense, I was only trying to avoid comments/replies that have no value to the question. As for the offset they sit just fine and clear the rear the lip by 1/4", it works for me...
