The Tempo is designed for 700c wheels, with a max tire clearance of 28mm. A 27" rim is 8mm larger in diameter than 700c. I would recommend finding a set of 700c wheels for it.

27" <> 700c.
Also 20mm sounds kind of skinny whereas a 27" tire is probably closer to 28-32 mm, so larger compared to 20mm.
