295s or 265s on 20x9 SRT rep Spider Monkeys?

Hey guys - I'm purchasing a set of 20x9 et 34 SRT rep Spider Monkeys from either Vittore or Top Custom wheels, but having a hell of a time deciding on either 295/45/r20 or 265/50/r20. I've read about 200 posts on here and still can't decide.

I have a 2011 Limited 4x4 V6. Mixed city/highway in the NY/NJ area with some snowy winters.

If I go 265/50/r20, I have more tire options, such as the Michelin Premier LTX or Defender LTX all seasons. Not so many choices in 295/45/r20. I really would like to install all seasons and not have to swap in the winter.

I'm wondering the following:

1. will I loose too much rim protection with a 265 vs the 295 on the 9" wheel?
2. will the 265 on the 9" wheel look stretched?
3. any ride quality differences with the wider tire? Particularly the "road tracking" people on here mention?
4. any sluggishness realized with 295 vs 265 on this V6 motor?

Any other pros/cons I haven't thought of?

Thanks in advance!

1. will I loose too much rim protection with a 265 vs the 295 on the 9" wheel?
Yes ...it will be noticeable if you compare side by side.

2. will the 265 on the 9" wheel look stretched?
Depends on the tire because not at 265 are true to size. Generally they'll look fine.

3. any ride quality differences with the wider tire? Particularly the "road tracking" people on here mention?
I've never experienced road tracking with several 295 width tires. The 295's give you a wider track which is beneficial in stability and cornering. To me it's noticeable.

4. any sluggishness realized with 295 vs 265 on this V6 motor? None to speak of. Again it will depend on the tire.

Any other pros/cons I haven't thought of?
The 295s look better and will give you more sport performance while the 265 choices will give you a better all-around tire. I run dedicated winter tires so I choose the better looking sport tire (295s).
