20" WILL FIT, 245 is the widest tire you can go with.

As far as tire width, that will depend on the offset of you new wheels. Having less offset will push the wheel out of the wheel well allowing for a wider wheel/tire combination...

You can definatly go 20's with out a problem. If you were to go with 22's you would have to make sure that you got ultra low pros, I'm talking 30 series. Width wise I have a 7.5" rim with a +48 offset but you shouldn't have any clearence problems if you went with a +45 and a 8" wide wheel. The over all tire diameter on a lot of stock 1st gen intepids is about 25", that is using the tire size 205/70/15. So as long as you can keep your tire diameter around there you will be ok. For example I'm running 225/40/18 which have a diameter of 24" and I lowerd the car to make up for the wheel gap. You just have to decide how big of wheel you want and then check out the sizes measurments on tires to make sure it all fits. Also if you didn't know the bolt patteren is 114.3mmx5

You want a wider tire than 215.

Personally, I'd upgrade, go at least 235 width.

I think spinners are kinda neat, but at up to $2-4k for a set, for machined and polished pieces of metal, they're a total rip off.
If you put a request into our intrepid imaging section, there are many photoshoppers like myself that could take a pic of your car, and put the rims of your choice at the desired height ex: 20"

Sorry to hear about your loss playgirl you have a nice ride. Did you get any pics before they got snatched? You can't have anything nice in the world today because some bastard is always trying to steal it from you.
