Hoping to confirm these will work

I have tried to read every post about wheels here. I want a new set of wheels, and think I have found something that will work. A bunch of people have bought Helo wheels, so I'm hoping there is a dearth of info.

Here's what I found (20 for front and 22 for back)
Helo HE 875 20x8.5 6x127 with a +38 offset
Helo HE 875 22x9.5 custom drilled to 6x127 with a +15 offset

Helo He 875 22 x 9 5 Custom Drill 15 Offset Black 1 Wheel Rim | eBay

Helo He 875 20 x 8 5 6 x 127 5 0 38 Offset Black 1 Wheel Rim | eBay

The 20" wheels are noted as 5.75" backspace by some venders and 6.25" another. I think this should would either way, but would rather double check what others have.

The 22" wheels have less backspace than our stock wheels, but the frontspace is only .250" over.

So here's my question list. Thanks in advance for you help and patience

1-Should these work?

2-If they work, any guess as to the tallest tires I can put on them

3-Anyone else who bought Helo wheels 20/22 able to give me specs on their wheels and the tires they chose.


Thanks in advance for you help and patience,

Ric

My SSR:
Redline 2003
I purchased the Helo HE866 HE86628573235 for the fronts 20" and put the Nitto NT420's 255/40R-20. Rim Backspace is 6.10" and 35mm offset. They Fit perfect and love the chrome look!
Haven't bought the backs yet have to wait til after summer, promised wife!!! lol!
But going to buy the 22" HE86622973235 for the backs. and put the Nitto NT420's
285/45R-22 on them. Rim Backspace 6.63" and 35mm offset.
Good luck!

Bought mine at wheelsforless.com. Good customer support and send chrome lug nuts and chrome valve stems with every wheel. In your case Im sure everything would be black.

think the front would fit at 6.25" but not on back and for sure not the 5.75" backspace. I looked and I think the backspace for the 22" for backs for the wheels you want are 6.75".

I don't think you meant "dearth" as I think that would be the opposite of your intentions.
Dearth means "scarcity"
You want something like "teeming with a superfluous abundance" of information!

They Fit

Just wanted to confirm that these do fit. Here's couple pictures to give you an idea of what they look like. First pic is with the chrome inserts and the last two are without (excuse the dirty ssr, dirt roads on my way to store it for winter). I haven't got it out from storage yet but when I do I can post more pics if you need it. I might also put wheel spacers on the rear, maybe 1/2".

Looks much better with the chrome inserts. All black looks a bit drab and dirty. I would avoid using spacers.

Thank you so much for the response. I assume you bought that standard +38 offset 22" for the back that? How much did it cost you for the extra set of centers? I was thinking about getting those too... with the intention of painting them blue to match my two tone black/blue paint.

Thanks again for the reply

Looking at selling these HE875 wheels (pics of them on the black ssr). Wheel specs are: Fronts 20x8.5, 6-127 bolt pattern, +38, Rears 22x9.5, 6-127 bolt pattern, +38. Wheels have roughly 3000 miles on them and are in great shape. No curb rash just normal driving wear. Looking for $800 if interested and also will not come with tires as I will reuse them. I can deliver or meet if reasonable distance (I am in Ann Arbor MI area) or we can calculate shipping cost. PM any questions or offers and I also can email detailed pics. Thanks.
