Arrow Stuck on Tire size and brand!!

I've got the DPE SP5's on order they are going to be 20x9 in the front and 20x11 in the rear. What size tire can i get away with, without having issues? I was thinking and told 255/30/20 front and 285/25/20 for the rear. Hankook's are my choice of tire because of the price. Also i heard the PS2's run wider walls so if i got the 285 for my rear in the ps2 that it would possibly rub??

Any help or input would be great!! Thanks

Look at the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta's. Performance on par with PS2 and better in the wet. Price is half of the PS2.

I just put 265/30 fronts and 295/30 rear Hankooks on and I'm not having any problems. Do you know the offsets of the DPE's cause that could make a big difference.

Myself and others have run 305/25's (Pirelli P-Zero Nero) on 20 x 11 wheels in the rear. I have no rubbing even with passengers (I'm on Eibach springs). A 285/25 is too narrow in my opinion. If you look at the tire manufacturer's specs you will see that they don't recommend putting that tire on an 11" wheel. The narrowest I would go is 295's on the rear. I am also running 255/30's on the front (20 x 9 wheel) without any issues. I hope this helps.

Ask whoever you ordered your wheels from what the offsets are (or you can measure them yourself after the wheels arrive). People here won't really be able to help you without knowing the offsets.

The alternative is to ask your wheel supplier what size tires will fit (if they won't release offsets).
