Default Question: 255/35-20 Tires

Hi Everyone,

Question - I have a 2006 Mustang GT with 20x10in rims on the rear. Has anyone put or seen 255/35-20 tires on these size rims? I see on most tire sale websites these size tires will fit a rim width range between 8.5in-10in, but was curious to know what people's opinion are, or what it looks like?

Thanks

Not to thread jack, but I was looking for the same info. I just bought a set of Black Shelby Redlines 20x8.5 & 20x10. I hate the fact that I won't be able to rotate tires unless I go with more pricey non-directional tires, so it would be great if you can do the same size all the way around. Also, does having a 255/35/20 size tire on a rim affect the rim guard? Just want to make sure that even though the tire is stretched to it's limits that it will still offer rim protection. Thanks!

why would you want to run 20's? for looks and handling all you ever need is nothing larger then an 18" rim

IMHO 20" rims look better than 18s. If and I mean if (lol) I decide to take it down to the track i'll either put the stockers back on with some drag radial, or get a set of 17"ers. For looks alone I went with 20s. I also just bought the Eibach Pro Kit. To me 18s leave too much wheel well space.

For me I purchased my GT (pre-owned) with 20x9.5" in front & 20x10" in rear. I need to replace the tires and purchased 4 Yokohama all-season tires (255/35-20), and again read they will fit a rim size range between 8.5"-10", but did not know how this would look, or truly fit!

On a 10" wide wheel, I would go minimum of 275. If you look it up, 255mm=10 inches almost exactly, but trust me you can get away with some more tire on there and it will look like they were made for each other.
