I want to put 20" rims and tires on my 2007 Lincoln MKZ  but I'm not quite sure if they will fit and if they do fit will they rub? I have been trying to look for this answer for about a week now. HELP ME PLEASE!

I run 26.9" diameter tires on my 2010 MKZ, clearance is closest at the bulge in the rear side of the fender inner liner
Towards the bottom when turning. About 3/16".
If your 07 has the same suspension you should be able to run a 20" wheel just do not exceed 26.9" diameter tire. You need to watch the width of the tire that you choose and the back spacing on the wheel.

What tire size are you running? How does it handle with the 20s?

I'm running 20 x 8.5 +35 wheels with 255/30/20 rubber on a 2010 MKZ. No rubbing at all. Ride quality has suffered somewhat, but in all honestly it's not as bad as it's made out to be.

 

Keep in mind performance will also suffer a little if each rim+tire is heavier than stock setup. Not enough to bother me however. 

 

Handling is awesome now. Rims are more prone to potholes, but now I can avoid them more  ;)

Eslagel, I'm also interested on the tire/rim size your running specifically. I know it's 26.9" overall diameter, which I'm glad to hear fits. But knowing the width would be great. I'm also thinking about using spacers to further widen the tire..

I've seen 20s on an old-style MKz.
Looks ok.

Rides like shit.
