Just ordered these wheels from Modular Concept and have given me an absolute cracking deal, my question is what is the largest tyre option i can have with out any rubbing, ideally i would want a 295/30/20 rear, but know one does this size, i dont want 285 as my stock wheels already run this. Options are a 295/25/20 which i think is toooo low a profile or go up to 305/30/20. wheels should be with me in about 10 days so i need to order the tyres ASAP. all the help you can give would be great. Wheel size will be 9" up front and 10.5" rear lowered on H&R springs, cheers



My wheels will have the lips and fastners in Interlagos Blue and middle in Gloss Black, i know alot of people dont go for the coloured lips, but in the UK its a fairly new thing and i aint seen know one with it yet, so initial reaction should be interesting.

dont do 25 profile as it will be too thin of a tire and will not look good unless your car is slammed to the ground.... 30 or 35 profile is low enough...

Beautiful wheel. They are pretty new.
Do not consider 295/25/20, it is too low of a rolling diameter and could mess up your car (ABS and tire sensors, increase revolutions and disparity)
If they presently make a 305/30/20? it is mildly taller than stock but okay.
Some members are running 305/25/20 with no problems. That's shorter than stock by 0.86".
25 profile will stand to make your ride harder and risk of wheel damage with a bad pothole.

Good luck and post pics when the wheels are on your car.

From experience, the tire width will depend on your offset aswell...

Pirelli P Zero comes in a 295/30/20.
For some reason i cant find a single outlet in the UK that lists this tyre, still looking as it is the perfect tyre combo for me, if there is any UK members reading and can recommend a shop that can supply this size, please let me know, cheers guys

That's annoying. Maybe give Pirelli a call and they will recommend
a place?
