Anyone running 35 series on 20s??

If Im gonna run 285/30/20 on the rear, should I go with 255/30 or 255/35 in the front? Ive seen some pics of people going with 30 series all the way around and the front tire looks noticably thinner. thanks

The overall diameter of on fronts are smaller than rear even for stock.


255/30/20 is closer to your stock OD than 35.
Fronts are suppose to have less sidewall than rear.

255/30/20 and 285/30/20 are slightly bigger than stock O.D but that's the exact tire size I usually recommend for most 20in applications for M3s.
