Tire Size Help

Some help/advise por favor!

Wheels are:

20x9 Front and 20x10.5 Rear

Tires:

255/30/20 Front

Either:

285/25/20 or 305/25/20, tire manufacture doesn't make 295/25/20

Thanks for your help!

-Mike

I’ve been on the horns of a dilemma as well, but I think I finally decided to go with NITTO INVO’S 255/30 20 for the front and 285/30 20 for the rear. I used this link to decide which tire would be the closest match to the stock size diameter without being smaller. I believe that a 285 is a nice choice in complementing the front 255 without causing the under steer that I’ve been reading about caused by too much meat in the rear. http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

I agree, went with 285 in the rear with Toyo T1-R. I know that would be pretty safe.
