I don't think the fronts will fit (or it'll be VERY tight). There's a front suspension arm that leaves about 1/2 inch clearance above the front tires (stock, 20" with 245/35/20). Your new fronts...

That's a low MSRP unit with $5500 down @ 10K/yr miles. The down payment alone is worth about $150/month on the payment.
