'14 wheel/tire question(s)

I have fallen in love with the Stance SC5 wheel, the only problem is that (according to the vendor site) the rear wheels will not fit with their offset of +35mm. If this is true, is it possible to fix the issue with a spacer and if so what size?

I'm looking at a staggered 20x8.5/20x10 set. I don't want to go cheap on the tires, but I don't want or need the best performing tire money can buy. I think I read somewhere that Nitto tend to run narrow? The site suggests 245/40 or 255/35 for the front and 295/35 for the rear.

The suspension is stock for now, but I would be lowering on Eibach Pro or Sport kits. If the Sport will rub, I would opt for the Pro kit along with an adjustable panhard bar and relocation bracket. Any suggestions here?

I could not imagine it not fitting. I'd suggest running 245s up front and 305s in the rear. Run michelins and never look back.

Every other wheel set that I've seen has a rear offset somewhere in the +50s. And are you saying there's no potential of rubbing with 20s and lowered on sportlines (1.5" front, 2" rear)?
