anyone running 315/35/20 tires?

I'd like to get 20" Nitto NT05 tires on my Mustang 5.0. I just love its looks and dry handling! .. but NT05 doesnt seem to come with 295/30/20 size. The next possible is 315/35/20. will this fit? It just sounds too big to me..

It fits! I have seen two 2011s running 315 nitto tires, they stick out a bit but in my opinion that looks awesome! When I burn off my 295 rears I'm going to a 305 or 315

315/35/20 increase tire diameter by almost 1.5". I am thinking of installing Eibach Pro kit which also lowers the rear by 1.5". That'll be a full 3" reduction in the gap. Yes it does look mean but Im still a bit worried.

how are you planning on running 20" Nittos on a 19" rim? If you just forgot to mention that you are upgrading to a 20" rim, you also need to include the width. If it's under 10" wide, I would say no to the 315's. 10 or above you should be ok.

Sorry they aren't going to fit the brembo wheels. First a 20 inch tire isn't going to fit a 19 inch wheel, and second you need at least a 10 inch wide rim.

I run the 305/35-20 NT555 Drag Radials on 20x10 Shelby CS40s. Springs are Eibach Sportlines (1.75 front and 2.00 rear).

The wheels fit well. There is a very minor amount of rubbing in the rear if I have extra weight in the car and hit a large bump. But I've always had really low cars and I don't even notice the minor rubbing.

The car is still a little too tall for me in the front, I'll be addressing it soon.

I have some other pics on my photobucket if you want to take a look.

Here is a thread with pictures of 315/35-20s on a Mustang. A little bit tall for my taste but they do look good.

I can't believe most of you thought I intended to fit 20" tires on my stock 19" rims?? cmon guys! ofcourse I will replace the rims with 20" ones. My question was simply if 315/35/20 tires would fit or not. Since the diameter of the wheel is increased quite a lot, how would handling or braking be affected?
