Default Backspacing Help

I have a 2013 300C with AWD, I am looking at getting a set of 20's and would really like the tires to be flush with the wheel wells.

If anyone has done this and can offer some advice that would be great.

Pictures of them also would be a life saver to be able to see it.

Sorry not backspacing, I meant Offset.

Keep in mind that you need to clear the inside of the wheel well when the wheel jounces up as the springs flex. "Flush with the wheel well" is not a good idea if you mean "flush with the outside of the wheel well".

Also, the wheel bearings are designed with a certain offset in mind. Deviations from that offset can load the bearings improperly and lead to early failure.

Services like tirerack.com can help you select a proper wheel.

I will just get a set of 2016 black 19" AWD wheels and be happy with them.

I am in the process of removing all chrome and blacking it out.
