Help on choosing tires for 20in rims

Hey folks. Can anybody help me choosing the correct tires for my new rims?

Rims:

20"x9" SPORTLINE MESH 8 Front
20"x11.5" SPORTLINE MESH 8 Rear

Thanks folks for your advice. Much appreciated.

Anthony

Hi, I have the same problem trying to find tyres, except here in Australia we have to keep the same or higher Max Weight Loading of the tyre. fronts 93 and rears 98.

The problem is the 20" tyres have a less weight loading than the oem 19"

you have a few choices... im going with 285/30/20's on my 360's

you can also do 315/25's or 295/25 if you want the low pro stretched look

depends on look mainly... if you want the best ride possiable i think 285/30 is the biggest size your going to fit without probs... if you like that low pro look and dont mind a harsher ride then get the 315/25's or 295/25
