10" rears won't fit on a sedan. This topic has been covered multiple times. I'd shy away from 20" too, IMHO, 19" is as big as you can go on the sedan without it looking silly.

19 9.5 et45 safe in the rear...you can push it to et35 if you roll the fenders and stretch the tire one size

in the front 19 8.5 et35 is about perfect


bold specs above are what your looking at:

225 or 235/35/19 front and 245/30/19 rear. make sure you lower your car with the 19's, otherwise it will look like 4x4

The most common and ideal setups are as follows:

19x8.5 +35-40 front with a 235/35/19
19x9.5 +45 rear with a 245/35/19 or a 255/30/19.

This will be a flush fitment on all 4 corners without the need of fender work at stock height.
