    That's what I run, but on a 17x7.5 ET33 rim (m)

    Your 20mm offset will stick out farther than my 33mm offset by an extra .5", causing a higher chance of fender contact. I believe a few people on this board are running the Kopi's (like Alpina's, right?) with no reports of major problems, so you should check with them on what size tires they are running as well as what suspension they have to determine their drop.

    Good luck.

    Running in flat, soft ground you want to focus more on width than height. You want a wider contact patch there. Taller tires are better for climbing over obstacles.
