I've been doing a lot of reading and searching on this site and others but I still haven't found the answer I am looking for. I am thinking about buying a set of 20" Vogue rims. The question I have is can I put the same size tires (275 35R20) on the front and back of the car without any issues? Does anyone else have the same setup or is there another size tire I should be looking at? I am also looking for recommendations on tires. Right now I am trying to decide between the BF Goodrich g-force sport comp 2 and the Hankook Ventus. They are both within my price range. Any help and advice is appreciated.
I think to avoid issues with Traction Controll and ABS, you want to keep the same rolling diameter as stock. I'm running 255/35-20 in the front, which has the same rolling diameter as stock and no rubbing.
I assume you are no longer interested in the iForged I have for sale?
I like your iForged wheels but they aren't exactly what I am looking for. I really want chrome wheels, not polished. Also, the new Vogue wheels are more within my price range. Thanks for the info though.
I was hoping to get the same size tires for the front and back so I can rotate them but it sounds like its not possible.
I like the kdw 2's also but most of the reviews say they are really noisy.
Polished wheels have their pros and cons over chrome. If you get a curb rash with a polished wheel lip it can usually be repaired fairly easily on the car, not so with chrome. However, the overall maintenance on a polished wheel is more.
The Iforge will be a higher quality stronger and lighter weight wheel, as it's forged. I'm pretty sure the Vogue wheels will be cast, and hence why they are cheaper. Doesn't matter either way to me what you get as I don't know the sellers of either, just a few things to consider.
Yes, wheel diameter vs tire outside rolling diameter. The rear tires are taller than the fronts IIRC, so yes the sidewall height on the fronts will be smaller than the rear if using the same diameter wheel front and back. I have 255/35-20 tire in the front and 275/35-20 on the rear.
I used a tire/wheel size comparator app, and the rears are only 2% larger than the front. Weather or not this is enough to affect TC or ABS I don't know, but the rear in the front will probably rub.
The factory front rolling diameter is approx 27" (84.9" Circ.), the rear is approx 27.7" (86.9" Circ.). I don't know how much deviation from these values you can have before the computer throws a fit, just providing the values.
I ordered the Vogue wheels over the weekend and they said ships in 3-5 days. Got a call today and they told me they are backordered for 45-60 days. I'm pretty disappointed to say the least. That means I MIGHT have them by the 4th of July but I doubt it.
