Would Vredesteins Ultrac Sessantas be considered a square shoulder?? I'm trying to figure out whether to go with 275 or 285 in the rears for 20x10 et20, BBS LMs.

i went with 285's in the rear as well. I have Hankook tires which I was advised on were great for the money on my friends M5 and held up well on the track and were not a square tire and would fit... hope this helps

Got the Vreds 255/30/20F and 285/30/20R mounted on my BBS LM 20x9F and 20x10R. By the looks of it, I think I could've even gone with 275/30 in the rear. Might be a tad bit stretched but not much. Sorry, no pics...yet . So for those who are wondering, if you're looking for a slightly stretched look and you want to ride on Vreds then go 245/30F and 275/30R. If you're looking for a little more meat then bump up the size to 255/30F and 285/30R. Pics to come(monday, got other goodies to get on the car at the same time) .

The different suspension springs thatís supposed to give a 1" drop doesnít always give you that exact number. Sometime the weight of the car will add on to that claim. Another thing is the tires, all side wall width that claims the same number (30) is not always accurate. So it could be you just need a different tire brand or your wheels didnít come with the correct offset.
