going from 20x8 to 20x9 wheels on my R/T...what will I need to do?

I cant seem to get a straight answer from anyone so I should have just asked this here first...but I'm looking to put a set of 20x9 Demon replica wheels on my 2009 R/T (which currently has the OEM 20" chrome clads on it).  From what I can gather, the stockers have a 24mm offset and the wheels I'm looking at have 20mm offset.  I'm at stock ride height.  The only thing I have done is the HopNot kit which is good for up to 275 width tires which work good with my 17" drag radials, but these demon replicas would just be for everyday driving.

Will I need spacers?
Can I run 275 width tires up front or would it be wise to stagger (say 245 or 255 up front and 275 in the rear to ensure the fronts dont rub)?
 

Here are the wheels in question...I know they are just knockoff replicas, but these are .5" thinner than the Factory Reproductions models which are at 20x9.5 and I figured I would need the space to ensure fitment.  If i'm wrong please someone correct me...I'm a little clueless sometimes :)

On the rears, the 20x9 with the +20 offset and the 275 wheels will fit with no issues, you can even go up to 305 on the rear....

On the fronts however, depending on the brand of tire, the 275's may scrub the knuckle..... I had to put 3mm spacers on the front of my R/T.  My wheels are 20x9, +20 offset and I run General G-Max AS-03 tires....
