Best tire for 20in vossen CV3s.. 20/9 20/10.5

Installing BCs at the same time as well, will the nitto 555r 305/35 give me problems in the rear?

I just put Vossen CV3's on my 2013 Roush Stage 3. I looked at the NT555 but decided to spend the extra money on Michelin Pilot Super Sports and I am glad I did. I went with 255/35/20 up front and 295/30/20 in the rear. Looks amazing in my opinion. Look at the off topic forum under pics and videos if you want to see it.

Ya I thought about the same setup. Will look and perform well but I was concerned about how long those rears would last, didn't want to replace the rears every 8-10k miles. You will like it though

Hopefully, I only drive it about 2-3k a year. Plus I'm trying to put the power from the Paxton down! How does yours do with the 710 kit?

Just got the wheels and tires yesterday. I haven't really jumped on it yet but I think the Michelins will hook up better since they are 295's vs. the 275's I had on their before.

I have 285 sumitomos and they are pretty good tires and look mean. Wish I would have gotten a 305 rear though

Make sure you do get some detailed pics! Not very much documentation on how a 305/35 looks on a 10-10.5" wheel. Thats exactly the direction I will be going so I'll check back for pics.

Here is some pics.. Don't wanna go higher so I might just flare the rear fenders or do a custom wide body. Barely rubs in the rear, 1/4 inch higher and it will clear just fine.

Sticky! I can finally utilize most of the power down low when they heat up. Everybody i asked said the same thing about them not lasting long, but she's not my daily so I went ahead and went with them. Got the regular 555s up front so Should be good for a few years with those.
