Re: What size of tire?

btw. I think 265 45 20 would be perfect for your setup since your new rims are 20 x 9.5 instead of 20x9. with 20x9 I like 255 45 20.

Re: What size of tire?

Re: What size of tire?

depends on what you want.

some need more sidewall depending on how they use their vehicle or what they want it to look like.

i'm personally not bothered by it at all. some may like the way it looks, some may think they look too big.

Re: What size of tire?

i have both. i'm staggered.

but yes... thats what they look like.

this is before i put my springs on, before pillar wrap, tint

... 265/55 and 275/45

unless you have 4x4 then your "% off your stock" wont mean anything... only when its a 4x4 you need to worry about closeness to stock

Re: What size of tire?

i dunno, most tire calc sites say to stay within 3% because of brake failure.

Re: What size of tire?
