Ordering a set of forgestar cf10 20x9 and 20x10 for a 2011 cts v sedan, what tire sizes / brands would you run?

may change the order to forgestar cf5's in which case they offer a 20x10.5 for the rear, what tire would you run in this application also?

thanks!

On that combo we typically run a 255/35/R20 front and 295/30/R20 rear. There are a bunch of different tire options out there for that size.

265 35 20 front, 305 30 20 rear is another option but there arent a lot of rear tires that size. Pirelli and Bridgestone S001 offer the 305 rear.

could i run a 305 on a 20x10.5 on a sedan without rubbing?

I did 275's on 9" Forgestars in the front and almost certain you can do 305's on 10.5 rears with no rubbing on stock height.

From past experience with other cars, Toyo and Bridgestones seem to run small, where as BFG's and Michelins run a little wider.
A 305 Bridgestone runs a lil more like a 295. Other's have fit 305 on sedans as long as its the proper offset.
