SRT Reps - 255/50,265/50,275/45?

Hi guys, Wheels on the way but still undecided about tires. 20x9 all around, wk eibachs, bilsteins, SRT sways. I'd like to hear opinions and reasoning behind them in regards to height, fit, width, and overall coordination of the package. Thinking of nitto 421Q tires which are available in all three sizes.
Thanks!

I've got 20x9 in the front and 20x10 in the rear. Tires sizes are 255/50 in the front and 275/45 in the rear. I love the way they look, not too slim but not fat. Here's a few pictures to help you out. IMO you can't really go wrong with any of the sizes.

(If you go with 255/50 your tires will look just like my front tires) 20x9 replica

Thanks for posting pictures of your Jeep. I'm always tempted to stuff as much rubber as possible under the fenders, but I have to admit black and blue looks just right. Not too slim and not too fat. I had to take a look at your build thread after I saw your post. Very very nice!

I run 275/45 on all four corners on 20x9. Tires stick out about 1/4" beyond the fender. Makes for a nice wide look, although the sides of the car gets dirtier now that the tires are wider. I've bumped the curb three times and no rim damage yet. Although I did have a freak sidewall failure one of my "bumps" when a rock got pinched between the curb and the tire on a spirited right hand turn. I think that falls into the category of dumb bad luck...

Re: SRT Reps - 255/50,265/50,275/45?

Thanks for all the help guys. I ended up going with the 255/50 all around. The extra rubber and especially the wider track up front have dramatically improved the feel of the jeep and my confidence in the curves. Glad I didn't go any wider in the front, but those 275s would have been sweet in the rear. Almost wish I would of picked something other than chrome for the wheels; it's a lot of bling. I like being able the see the results of all my work detailing the brakes, though. Thanks again!

Wow. Looks great. How did u get the 20x10's to fit flush? I have the 20x9's chrome reps and was advised not to get the 20x10's in the rear bcuz it would stick out of the fender.
