Default Now looking at Vossen CV2's staggered 20x10.5 rear and 20x9 front

I posted a thread yesterday where I was trying to decide between Forgestar F14's and Spyder wheels. I'm looking at Vossens and think I like these way better. I'm trying to achieve a staggered look with 275/35/20's for the front, however, I want those meaty 315/35/20's for the rear. My concern is, I do not want any rubbing with the rear tires. Occasionally I do have passengers in the back of my 2013 stang, however, I do not have plans to lower the car either. Is this a good setup? Do any of you guys have Vossen wheels with a similar setup and have some rubbing issues? Thanks again.

The 275/35 on the front won't be an issue...it's the rear that sounds scary to me.

The 10.5" from Vossen (if I remember correctly) has on offset of +45. Putting a 315 on there will have it sitting outside your fenders.

The rears are also too large (diameter). If 315's will fit (probably will) they will be over 1.5" taller than stock. Might rub, and will throw your speedo off a bit. 315/30/20 or 305/30/20 would be better sizes in the rear.

My CF5s 20x11 with 53 offset and 315/35/20 pilot SS fit flush with fender with my Steeda sport springs. Actually these tires are 1" taller than stock on my CS and bring my speedo in line with GPS readings as factory speedo settings tend to be less than actual speed. With the width of the speedo needle, it's really hard to tell your actual speed. I suggest you check your speedo with a GPS first. With my car loaded (trunk and seat delete area) I can get a very minor rub on the inner lip when hitting a bump.
You will need an adjustable ph bar to centre your rear axle,as the gap on both sides will be different by 3/8" or so and it bugged me until I did it.
With Whiteline rear sway bar and end links, you can fit a 12" wheel on the rear with 335 tires
The taller tires and 1 1/2 drop from the springs gives the car an awesome look.

I also was thinking of getting an adjustable panhard bar too to help with my tire/wheel setup. Why is it that the gap is different on both sides? I had staggered 18 inch rims and tires on a 2004 Mach 1 with 305/35/18's in the rear. I never noticed that one tire stuck out more that the other. I was really looking forward to getting a 315/35/20 tire in the back without making any mods. The minimum rim width for that tire size is 10.5 inches. I figured the Vossen 20x10.5 is a perfect wheel for that size tire, plus I love the CV2's. I do not plan to lower the car either, so I don't know if this would help with the rubbing issues I might encounter. There's gotta be someone out there with running 315/35/20's on a 10.5 inch Vossen wheel. Anyone?

Running a 315 will physically work on that wheel (I've seen 305's and 315's run on 10" wide before), but I seriously wouldn't try it with that offset.

An RTR is as flush as you can get (even then, it almost sticks out depending on the tire you run). The Vossen will stick out 0.7 mm further than an RTR, for reference.

You could also ring up Vossen and see if they can do a custom offset for you or see what other people have run with that wheel.
