Thinking of running PSS 295/30/19 on 220s

I need two rear tires, have a cheap rear 295s to use. Currently running 275/35/19 on the stock 220s. I know i need at least a 10'' wheel. Do you guys think i would run into any other issues? Like during high speeds, or normal driving
Also does anyone have any pictures of this setup?

I know some people run 295/30 on 359m, which are also 10". I think it is still in the safe zone for 10" wheels so it shouldn't really cause any major issues.

I would not put 295 on a 9.5" wheel.

295 on a 9.5" wheel is a bad idea. Even if the shop can mount it, you will not get the right contact patch which leads to bad handling and incorrect wear. It's a safety issue.

If you want the "wide tire" look, get wider wheels -- simple as that.

I wouldn't even put the 295/30/19 on 19x10 in all honesty.

I'm about to throw 285s on the rear with my zcp wheels to handle the extra power of the blower. Anyone have any experience doing this? I know 295 is a bit much as mentioned above.

If sidewall support and handling is important to you, the OEM 220's should be limited to 275/35-19 tires. For OEM 359's I wouldn't go any wider then the GTS size of 285/30-19.

295/30-19's really deserve 10.5" (or 11") wheels for proper sidewall support.
