Wheels and tires...wheels and tires
 
Hi everyone...looking for a little advice on tire size. If I were to go from my stock 17's to 20" reps...what tire size would I need to keep the same overall diameter? Currently on 235-65-17.

Also, what color rep would you do?

Niether one of those 2 sizes you posted will mess with my speedo?

Any opinion on color?

BTW...love the dead terrorist...and the jalepeno on a steek. I hear a new character is on the way too...

i say go with black or comp grey....

EDIT:btw the 275-45-20 are a tad bit bigger, but i doubt it would be a noticable difference...the 255-45-20s are exactly the same size as ur stock tires

I can confirm 275/45/R20 does not affect the speedo, actually it makes it more accurate (going by GPS).

As for color, IDK. If you like your existing chrome rims, go for chrome! You can always powdercoat it if you change your mind down the line.

Thanks guys! I think I'm taking the new comp grey off the list of possibilities. With mine being dark khaki, I think it would look like a mistake. Black or Chrome...always such a PITA decision. Maybe I'll do a poll later.

So what 255 is everyone's favorite? I'll be running my stock wheels with all season tires in the winter, so whatever I put on the Reps does not need to be a snow/ice type of tire. I'm not racing it either. Any recommendations? I want to go with 255 so that I can still run my stock spare if I get a flat.
