The bolt pattern is correct.
You'll have to check the lug nut seat to see if it's the correct type.
FRONT 9J X 25 X 20INCH
REAR 10J X 45 X 20INCH
I assume this means:
Front: 20x9, +25
Rear: 20x10, +45
The widths are fine.
The OEM offset is +35

For the front, that might be too much "poke" - combine 10mm more offset (~0.4") with a 0.5" wider wheel, and you get 0.65" more poke than OEM.

For the back you have a 1.5" wider wheel than OEM, with 10mm more offset, which means it will poke out about (0.75" - 0.4" =) 0.35" for than OEM, which would probably look ok.

Maybe @Mad Hungarian can double-check my math, see if the poke in front is acceptable, and might know if the lug seats are correct.

Close, here's what I get...

Additional width of 0.5" divided by 2 = exterior lip of wheel moves out 0.25" (6.35 mm)

Offset decrease of 15 mm = exterior lip of wheel moves out an additional 0.59" (15 mm)

Result = Exterior lip moves out a total of 0.84" (21.35 mm)

This will likely work if you run a tire no wider than a 235/35R20 up front, but any more than that might experience some rubbing.

If you already have those sizes mounted on those wheels I certainly see no harm in trying, it may be close enough that you get away with it - at that point it's so close that it could come down to the shoulder shape and tread width of the exact model of tire you're using.
Worst case if you do get some rubbing you can change down to the 235's.
