Up to 20" will fit.

Max backspace depends if you want to run spacers or not.

Sinister runs 18 x 8 front with 4.5" bs and 18 x 10 rear with 6.25" bs. no spacers

The Boss website says they are a 6" back space.

The rims will fit but you might need a 1/2" spacer for the front.

Just a heads up Boss rims are notorious for pitting bad. Im sure aslong your car sits inside and its always washed you might be fine. Not trying to scare you but just wanted to give you some peace of mind.
