    Im running 275 40 18 on the back and they are not wide enough so im switching to a 295 45 18 but I believe my rears are 10.5 wide, the 275's are fine but they are canted in a bit so im going wider and want the wheel well filled up a bit more thats the reason for the higher profile

    I'll try and help, 20s are a pretty big for an fbody so you're tire will need a lower profile to keep the overall tire diameter as close to stock. I'd recommend a 285/25/20 or a 295/25/20 if you want something a bit wider.
