The set up you want will fit very nice with the fenders rolled
My new set of wheels is pretty close to what you posted

20x9 +35 in front will fit fine, what size tire?

20x10.5 +42 in the rear is gonna be tight, even with a roll. Again, something like this works with a undersized tire though. Not my cup oh tea, but to each thier own.

yeah i know on that tire stretch is not what i want!!! or then what about

20x8.5 38 mm or 40 mm for the front
and
20x10 45 mm or 48 mm for the front

I want a offset that will have the car looking the cleanest once I roll the fenders and lowering it! also, I would like to thank everyone for their input!!!

I assume on that second fitment, you meant rear :)

20x8.5 +38 or +40 would work just fine.

20x10 +48 would be great, and should fit with a nice flat roll.

19 x 8.5 +23 (5mm spacer)
19 x 9.5 + 25 (3mm spacer)

245/35/19 all round, rear guards rolled to within inch of their life. Bumper bracket trimmed.

No scrubbing, rear clearance is very very close but clears.

your proposed setup depends all on the tyre you choose, rear will be close with a 265, but probably not with a 285 etc

Sounds like a good pairing.

If possible though, I'd try for 255 and 285. A 10" wheel deserves a 285 or 295 if possible.

20x9 +35 front and rear, 275/35 tires. They rub on stock suspension even with rolled fenders. I am planning on pulling out the grinder this weekend and taking the lips down a little bit. Hope that helps

You're only talking 2mm, and either will work out just fine. Might depend on what you have in back too, to help with the stance.

However, I'd go with the +38, as mentioned above. Every little bit pushing out the fronts looks good in my opinion.
