I think you would want to go with 255/30 20 front and 285/30 20 rear.

Wheel offests make a lot of difference with rubbing.

255/30-20 and 285/30-20 works best. the 255/35-20 is a little too big for the front, I believe.

I can't wait for Nitto to come out with the 305's too. Been getting a lot of inquiries on that size. For the 19" wheels, we fit the 255/35-19 and the 295/30-19 and that works nice.

Sorry to bring back an old post but would your recommended tire sizes (255/30-20 and 285/30-20) work with PS2's? I plan on running 20x9 et15 and 20x10 et20. Can't decide between the Invo's or PS2. Thanks
