20s best tire size

So I'm looking at a set of rims they are only sold in 20s and 22s. The 22s are too big for my taste but the 20s I think will work. Anyone have 20s on a newer(11+) with pictures, also wondering what tire size would be best. Tire rack is giving me options for 255/35 20 front and 275/35 20 back. But AM has 255/35 20 and 285/30 20. Not sure what to do here.... Looking for high performance summer tires, she's stored right now for the winter.

There are plenty of people riding around in 20's and it looks pretty good. As far as tire size I would go with what AM says because their suggestion will be closer in size front and rear than tire racks suggestions will

Just use a tire size calculator to figure out what you need. Get as close to 0.0% difference in size as you can, but if youre within 2% or so youre good. I like this calculator, but requires Flash:

I went 255/35 and 285/30. 20x9 and 10.5. Lowered on h&r super sports. No clearance issues at all.
