Need Tires soon

    So Im still using the stock Goodyear RSA's right now - I figure in a month or 2 I'm gonna be needing some new tires. I have the Axis Mods on now - and would like the tires to be able to fit the Mods & the stock rims (if i ever needed to switch them out).
    So should I stay with 265/50/20? or can I Go with a wider tire? Something like a 275 or 285? Would that be too wide for the stocks?

    Stocks - 20x8
    Mods - 20 x10

    Will, thats alot of difference in width from the mods to the stock. I don't think 265 tires will fit on 10's and 275's would be too wide for the 8's. You may have to give up one. Why do you want compatibility for both? I say go with 285's on the mods. You will be happy with the added rubber in handling.:biggrin:

    i'd go with either 275/45-20's or 285/45-20, but i don't think either will fit your stock 20's. the 275 might but it will be a bad ride.

    It doesn't look too stretched out? And you have no wheel protection to boot. It's your call Will but I would not use that combo. Go with a 285 on the mods and keep the RSA's on the stock one's for emergencies.

    actually the 275/45/20 will fit your stock wheel without looking stretched. the width and side wall will be about .5 lower than current stock 265/50/20. you'll have more tread patch on the ground and better handling. cost wise in some cases the tires will cost you less. check out http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Compa...&width=275/&ratio=45&diameter=20&startIndex=0
    now as far as the 10" wheel it should be good, but don't quote me on the .

    I just got hankook ventus 275/45/20 for my stock rims, talked to a couple people with this size and they say its better handling than stock. Havent had them installed yet, but they are a nice looking tire.

    Please post feedback when you can. I need to replace soon. I really want BF Goods, although I can get Toyos for 50% off from a friend of mine. Not sure what I'm gonna do, but plus sizing is a thought.

    I was actually thinking of 275/50/20
    I think the 45 profiles would make the gap bigger no?

    Yes, 45's will give you less than 1/3 inch more gap (.6 overall diameter difference from stock size). That's not much.

    Maybe I'm mistaken. I might be quoting a 40 series size. Cant remember
