    20" Tire question

    I know this is probably beating a dead horse as im sure its been asked alot, but I am needing some tires for new wheels. I have 20/9 an 20/10.5 for my sedan. What tires would yall recommend as well as the size. Car is around 650-660 rwhp right now so need a tire with good traction.
    Will a 305/35 fit these cars?

    Appreciate any advice.

    Re: 20" Tire question

    A 295 is really the largest you want to go on a 20x10.5 wheel.

    Something to consider; A 295 = 11.6" wide. A 10.5" wheel is actually 11.5" wide from outer edge to outer edge. So the 295 fits the 10.5" wheel perfectly square. The 305 = 12" wide. So this gives you .25" of bulge on each side of the wheel. This can cause rubbing depending on the offset of the wheel and suspension.
