I saw some posts by D3, but nothing confirmed. Does anyone know what is the largest/widest rear tire you can fit under the wheel well? I'm looking at a 20x10 wheel for the rear. Thanks in advance!

I ran a 27530R20 I know D3 claims to put 29530R20. I had 20X10 lexani lss10s, you can see pics in the 'show us you STS link' I think its the last page. I asked the guys at D3 but they didnt tell me the offsets they use. If you find out please let me know. I thought the 275s looked pretty wide even friends commented on them.

295s fit on my rear....and they look good. extra large footprint on our cars are perfect

Jr Blac214, what kind of wheels, sizes, and offsets (if you know) do you have?

I have 20x10.5 with 275's and no issues, tires have a boatload of room and I could almost push an 11 if I wanted.

why did you go with 275 on a 10.5? i would think minimum would be 295.

Tires came with the wheels, I will be changing tires once I burn these off. There is no minimum, hell you can run a 215 on a 10.5 if your crazy enough, and yes it has been done.

295's should be no problem, If I have some spare 20" tires here at the shop I can try a few different sizes this weekend when I'm bored. What profile you thinking about running? What offset are your wheels?

Im still looking for some for my V without spending thousands. Any ideas?

Not really, there are a few 1pc cheaper wheels out there in a 6 bolt that will fit the V but i think there is only 2-3 wheels are they aren't normally appealing to most owners. I think Forgeline just came out with 1pc custom wheels, they can dirll the bolt pattern so I would check them out, D3 is a distributor in the US but there are many others as well.
