I Have A Stock Gt500 And Don't Plan On Lowering It. I Was Wondering If Any One Has Tried 275/40/20 On The Front Of Thier Gt500. The Rims I Am Looking To Purchase Are The Steeda Spyders, 20x9.5 45mm Offset. Anyone Who Has Tried Let Me Know The Pro And Cons.
Thanks

Hi,
I Was Going To Go With The 315/35/20. The Nitto Invo Or Nt05 The 315 Measures 28.62 And So Is The 275/40/20. I Could Go With The 245/45/20 But I Think The Rim Is Too Wide. Trying To Keep The Same Od On Tires.

I run the INVOs with no issues, but they are the 275/35. I've driven slammed with no rubbing, but I could almost guarantee the 40s would rub.

Hi Guys Quick Qeustion Has Any Body Tried The 245/45/20 Up Front? This Is Very Close To The 315/35/20 In Od. I Did Not Want To Go That Narrow But May Consider It.

Thanks

If you have a good relationship with a tire shop you might have them mount some used tires in the size you want and see how they work out. The used tires would only need to last a 100-200 miles. :thinkerg:

Any half-way good tire shop ought to have a good supply of used tires that haven't gone to be recycled.

I got the 295/35-20 Rear and the 245/40-20 up front.. it offers the best ratio in terms of overall wheel height front and rear.. and the 245 is not too narrow.. trust me..
