3" stagger on 20's....would be easier on 19's; but here goes.
If you're lowered & want a tad shorter tire: 255/30,325/25 in Michelin PSS.
could go 265/30's up front....the diameter of these tires are just 26.1/26.3" tall & are usually used on lowered Z's...the 265/30 is also 26.3.
Your taller choices are gonna be a bit stretched on the rear's-in the PSS...245/35,305/30's
26.8/27.2" tall.
as for spacer's; it all depend's on your camber setting- if wheels were set straight up & down...your rear wheel lip would be 1/2" further out/ so 0* camber up front & stock neg. camber out back (-1.5/-2.0*)...and you will be close to even fitment.

Another fatter option;
Just clicked over to the Nitto website & seen the Invo's make a 275/30,345/25@26.50/26.65" tall & 10.63/13.66" section width....they would be fat & ride good-as i currently use the invo's....They will be heavier than the Michelin's/but may cost a bit less....& probably the best uniform fitment for a 3" stagger.

Let me get this straight

You bought wheels

In a 3 inch f/r stagger

Without researching ahead of time how to achieve the "flush" look

Without searching tire sizing

Without telling us ride height

Without telling us what suspension mods you have/plan to have

Given all this, the best solution is:
1) return your wheels or sell them immediately to whoevers dumb enough to buy that sizing

2) Read up alot

3) buy wheels/tires/suspension mods with what you've learned

un-sure how much backspacing the bag's take up(in relationship to stock),,,also are you planning to drop over the outer edge of tires?

if you could post your current wheel/tire set-up & throw in a pic or 2...that would help;
as i've almost already crossed out the 345/25's on rear.

Heck; you're practically there!
you gotta get car on some level ramps or block's/that fit completely underneath the tire's.
Be sure its a level surface;as you will need to turn the front all the way to one side & then the other @ride height & with all the weight in car (including 19gals. gas)...get down low & get out the ruler & any kind of measuring piece (different width's of boards/blocks etc...)
measure up your pinch points on inner & outer...you gonna try & split the gap between inner part of rear fender & whatever is closest...and do the same on front (most likely upper control arm).
If you're in tight with your alignment guy-he may put it on the rack for you...just be sure you're measuring as if you are driving down the road.
You may be able to lose a little bit of that negative camber.
Good Luck!

That's a huge amount of -camber on rear...may have worn a hole on inside of tread.

You need to stop giving wheel sizing advice.

First of all, if he's on bags, then presumably thats not his drive height, so the camber when he's fully dropped is irrelevant

Second, you talk back spacing so much, but its all worthless. Wheels aren't sold with backspacing measurements, they're listed with width and offset.

Third, the Z has an infinite amount of space underneath, so no one's ever gonna hit anything on the inside.

Fourth, this guy is NOT on the right track. He bought bags and wheels without any thought to suspension parts, wheel sizing, or tire sizing. Pretty much the WRONG track.

Lastly, if he's on bags, he should be running super aggressive sizes, not the conservative stuff you're always recommending.

Sounds like you need to tend your own business OZ!
As I do not know anything about bags, but was attempting to lend a hand & not bash!
You set your car up the way you like it & I'll do the same to mine.

I don't have enough room to run a true coil-over on the rear.

All OptionZero does is try bash people for not knowing and trying to ask questions. Quite frankly he makes this forum a toxic enviorment and not friendly for new comers.

Sure you could search and find answers to questions, but having archives of information is not what keeps forums alive and thriving. Kudos to you for helping, as this forum shouldn't be just one person trying to prove they know something....
