That doesn't say much in regards to OP's question. A 10.5" ET25 will be 11mm closer to the strut compared to your 10" ET20.

275s, yes.

Not sure how close. Haven't measured. Far enough that it doesn't rub. Close enough that it looks pretty good.


I think a 10" wheel is easier to fit on most suspensions, and easier to use more tire out off ie you could put wider tires without rubbing on a 10" ET25 but I wanted a square setup that works well AND fills the fenders (track camber sunks wheels in) without ever needing spacers. 10.5 ET 20 does it.

Haven't tried 285s yet but will.
