Yes they should fit just fine, but to be safe I would make sure the bolt pattern is the same as your car. Should be 5 x 114.3 (Metric) or 5 x 4.5" (Standard) Good luck...
thanks. I will check the pattern just to make sure. So its fine to run 19's up front and 20's in the rear?

Yes, that will be fine. In the front you want a 19x9 max or you will rub a little. If you go 20'' in front you will want a 20x8.5. You will be ok with the set up you are looking at. :good:
Awesome, thank you

I'm relatively certain the bolt pattern has been the same since the SN95 was introduced. The only fitment issues you could have with wheels is improper offset/backspacing or front caliper clearance issues.

Anything designed to fit an S197 with Brembo brakes should fit any S197.

False! Have 19x9.5 front rims with 285 tires and zero rub.

Also you can run bigger front 20 than that with no rub.

I have no idea where you are getting this info but it is incorrect.

You're right, I was thinking 20" front wheel...all the tire places I spoke with said there is a good possibility 20x9 will rub in the front...I could be wrong, I am just repeating information. I looked into the same size wheels for my car... Except I am doing 19 all around...

Ehh got to be careful of the tire places haha. They tried to tell me I couldn't run a 19X9 rim on all four corners with a 275 tire. Yet I am running 19X9.5 on all four corners with 285 tires.

Also I don't think a 20X9 will rub. It isn't so much the width that is an issue as the offset. Not too say you can't go too wide. If your offset is wrong then yes a wider rim/tire will rub.

The real question is does the places you talked to realize the offset is more important than the width in this case? Sadly half these tire places anymore just have people who type in your car model and then look at a list and if it isn't on the list it won't fit. Which isn't always true.

There's a guy running 20x10 on the front with a +48 offset and 305 tires, at full turn it rubs wheel well a little.
Vorshlag runs 18x12 on all four corners ... I think there were some minor modifications that had to be made though. 18x10 fits with no problem, and Roush runs 20x10 on their cars with nothing other than steering rack stops.

I thought the Roush had 20x9 on the front..with the steering stops
I was pretty sure they were 20x10 ... but it doesn't say on their site. They fit them with tires that are meant for a 10" wide wheel, if it was a 9" wheel they would bulge really bad. They might be 20x9.5 though ... that would be a good fit for the tires they have on them, and this new wheel lists that as the size (it's the only one on their site that lists a width).
