    What size tires should I buy?

    I just bought (4) 20X10 Foose Nitrous wheels. (2) are for the rear of my 97 Z. I'm going to buy 20X8.5's for up front. Was just trying to find out what would be the best size tires for these rims on my car. And, if anyones interested. I'm selling the other (2) Foose Nitrous rims. Gray spokes, 20X10, 5X4.75 bolt pattern, 38mm offset. $400 plus shipping. Thanks, Rob

    prob. cuz they are too big.. its better to go with 19's or 18's.. 20's are kinda of pushing it.. But some people have them.. I don't kno wuts up with the clearence issue.. if you will have any.. But I know.. I got 18's and theres bout a little less than half an inch before it rubs the inner fenderwell.. so 20's i'm not to sure of..

    if the overall diameter is the same, clearance should be the same.

    Well I bought a pair of 285/30/20 Bridestone Pontenza's for the Foose Nitrous 20x10's that are going on the rear of my Z. The width is 11.4" and the diameter is 26.7". I think I'm going to buy 245/30/20's for the front, if I ever get a pair of 20x8.5's for the front. Instead of the other pair of 20x10's.

    I'm not sure those 285/30 will fit... especially if your lowered; its gona raise your body over an inch... and throw the speedo off big time.

    295/20 will fit perfect (11.6 inches wide)

    a 285/25 fits better and will match the height of the 245/30; but they are rare

    The rims I just sold were 18x10 on the rear. I was running a 275/40/18 tire on those rims. A 275/40/18's tead width is 10.3" with a 26.7" diameter. I'm going to put the 285/30/20's on a 20x10 rim. The tires have a 10.5" tread width and a 26.8" diameter. The new tires are just a little bigger then what I was running, but I'll have a lot bigger diameter rim this time.
