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!
