Need help and input deciding on wheel and tire size for 20 inch custom Forged wheels.

About to order a set of forged wheels in 20s and need input from those in the know about sizing. As I can go with any offset I want and width it really comes down to what is the best tire size to run. I currently have HRE FF01 in 19x9 and 19x10.5 with 255/35 and 295/30 tires.

So for the new wheels thinking rear 20x10.5

Front is 20x9.5 or could be 20x9

Ideally I would be able to run a 265 front and a 295 front, but as I understand a 255/30 and 295/25 may be my best option to keep things as even as possible.

Appreciate the input so I order the perfect spec. Thanks!

Nice wheels but I have my heart set on some super concave forged monoblocks.

I see you went with a 285/30 in the rear on an 11 inch wheel. Would that tire have worked on a 10.5 inch wheel?

20's are just too big for this car, IMO.
To run a 295 in back, you typically need to have an et around 22, but that's for 18" and 19" wheels.

Just say no to 20's!! They look worse, perform worse, are more fragile (due to thin tire side-wall) and cost more. Nothing to gain. I had a set of 20's at one point and learned the hard way.
