1970 Impala 20" wheels and tires? HELP!

Hi there, im new to the forum, just introduced my self!

I have a 1970 Chevrolet impala, currently with 15" 205/75/15 tires, have no idea for offset or backspacing since these are not the OEM wheels. Right now it drives nice, comfortable, looks beautiful as it is, but I want a "pro touring" stance and style. I live in a small beach city in Mexico, so everything is near not much driving.

I want new wheels and tires, I have seen 20" wheels in some other impalas (65,66,67) with the pro touring style, I really like it.

Question: will they fit? which combination of wheel/tire would you recommend? offset and spacing? I want 20" all around.

I like the torq thrust II chrome.

Thanks a lot!

If there is a wheel retailer that sells custom wheels you can go there and have your wheel wells measured with a professional version of this cheap tool that I keep in my tool box:


That way you will know first time without having to mount and break down multiple times tires and wheels to try a good fit (without checking your tires could end up being shaved or cut if it rubs).
