Help Choosing Size and Brand - Breyton 20"

BREYTON RACE GTS
20 x 8.5 +35mm FRONT
20 x 10 +35mm REAR
According to Tirerack, these come with Spacers and Lugs

Tire Options
Nitto NT555
245/30/20
275/30/20

OR

Nitto Invo
255/30/20
285/30/20

Im looking for a tire thats smooth and wont rub. Ofcourse it has to look right too. Not really concerned to go for the bigger wider setup unless those are good tires and wont rub in my setup. If theres any other brands that are better in the same price range please do let me know.

If anyone has had experiance with these tires let me know.

Lastly will i be able to just pop in my TPMS sensors in these wheel valve stems?

Thanks for help in advance.


BY THE WAY. I will be looking to SELL my OEM 19" Wheels with Michilens as soon as I purchase these. Car only has 1900 Miles on it so you can guess the condition of them.. Any Questions PM

Thanks Again

I just ordered some Toyo T1-R's in 245-30-20/285-30-20 with tpms sensors for 1400 installed. With these tires the overall diameter did not change more than an 1/8th inch in the front and a 1/4 inch in the rear.

I dont think that there would be a problem with them rubbing considering some guys are running 305's in the rear.

Dont listen to these guys hatin on the 20's. They fill up the wheel wells nice and in my opinion look better on the car than the 19's which dont really look that good unless you do coilovers or lowering springs.

Nice choice of wheel based on looks and price.

Do your 245-30-20 look really small on your wheel? What set up do you have? 20 x 9 up front? I have a 245-35-20 (don't ask me why...it's what came on the wheels) and they rub the inner lining of the wheel well. I was thinking 255-30-20 but I'm afraid it will rub as well. I know the 245-30-20 will work but I'm afraid they will look too tiny and have too much of a stretched look.

Thanks!

Here is a pic of 245/30/20...I dont think they look small but others might disagree...with that said i might try 255/30/20 and 295/25/20 next just to see what they look like...

sorry i'm not sure how to resize...

Thanks for sharing bro, I think it looks perfect. Great set up!

I'm tired of switching out these daymn tires. After seeing how good yours looks, I'm going to do the 245 set up just so I don't have to go through it again. Thanks again!

Youd be safe with 245/30 or 255/30 without rubbing. 245/35 are almost an inch taller the these 2 sizes. Just wanted to let you know.

OEM 19's are 24.78 diameter
245/30 are 24.78
255/30 are 25.02
245/35 are 25.74

This is GREAT information...thanks!

My concern about going 255/30 is that, although the diameter is almost an inch taller in the 35, going from 245 to 255 increases the width which may cause it to rub as well.
