Go to tirerack.com & see what 20" wheels they list for your car. In their specs, see the range of offsets for all the wheels, to see what'll work. Especially pay attention to the rim width along with the offset.

Much larger & wider wheels, you don't always want to stay with the same offset. It depends on where the first interference is located. Outboard interference (fender lip, etc) means you need larger offset. Inboard interference (spring/shock, knuckle, etc) means you need less offset.
