Re: widest tire on 20 X 8 in. rim

Tire Size included in this listing:


(4) 245/35ZR20 (Front & Rear)

tire width depends on profile ratio. you can run a 275 with a higher sidewall maybe 40-45 profile but it will look goofy. 20x8 irocs for the most part use 245/35/20 tires. they do offer 20x9 replica iroc why not buy those instead.

i would think you are limited to a 245 max, unless you increase the diameter of the tire
