Re: 285/50/20 vs 275/55/20

I'm thinking of the same setup, I want more rubber on the pavement so leaning to 285/50/20 However ordering the stock 20" overland wheels 1st. Not sure if they come in a 9" in from from the factory...

post pictures when your done with your setup! good luck!

I think if it is an on road car go the 285/50 wider, lower profile. If u r using the car off road go the 275/55 as it has more sidewall to play with letting down the tyres.
