Guys, New-B question
Am new to the site and just got my first SS. Yeah!
want to fit her with some new tires and wheels but not sure what will fit.

have read allot of the articles on here but not sure which will be right for me.

Car has
metco extended arms
1.2 & 1 inch drop springs

Would like 20" wheels with a nice tire combo
as wide as possible with no rubbing. Would rather not make body modifications if needed could tweak with fender moulding a little.
This car will be a daily driver if you want to call it that about average 30 to 40 miles a week.
California car so no snow to worry about.
So this is my choice best guess.
front= 20 x 8.5 245x35x20
Rear= 20 x 9.5 or 10 265x30x20
Wish i knew what back set would work with these??
Thanks for the help in advance

i believe the widest anyone has on this forum is 22x10 all the way around.

those tires you picked will work fine.

ideal back spacing is around 5 or so.

you'll also need to check your offset tho.

Also.....the tire/wheel sizes that you're looking to put on the rear.....put them on the front too. No sense in going to a narrower tire then what came on the car. A 9.5" wheel will easily accept the tire size you listed.

And providing that the backspacing and offset is correct there is absolutely no reason why they wouldn't fit......

Go for the 20x10 in the rear. If you really want a patch, you can get a 295/30/20 on those rears!

I'd go with the following on the size of wheel you've listed.

255/35-20 front = 27.0" diameter (same as stock SS)
275/35-20 rear = 27.5" diameter

You're speedometer and odometer would be a little slow with the larger than stock rear wheel, but still liveable. You wouldn't have any ABS issues with these size differences.

wow.
Great information guys

I will mess around with some different sizes at the wheel and tire shop to see what I like and take it from there.

Sounds like a 10 inch rear wheel is in my future with 9.5 in the front

255/35-20 front = 27.0" diameter (same as stock SS)
275/35-20 rear = 27.5" diameter

Yeah im running a 9.5 for my rear with no rubbing so i think a 10 will be fine if you can find it...
