Tire install woes

So today I went and had my new tires installed onto my new wheels. It's a staggered set so I can understand some one that doesn't know any thing about tires might get confused. Well I have the 20x8.5(fronts) and 20x10(rears). For the front I ordered 255/35/20 and for the rear I ordered 305/35/20. Huge difference that you can see right away when looking at both tires and wheels. Well the person who installed them today even asked before he put and wheel up on the tire changer that "hey these are staggered correct?" I said yes and told him the specs of every thing and which thing went on what. He for the most part seemed like he under stood and even checked the wheel size before placing it on the machine to be sure. Well to make this long story short after I get home from my buddy dropping me off in his truck and helping me get the tires+wheels out of the bed and installed in the car. I noticed that the dummy put my 305 on my 8.5 wheel...................... And a 255 on one of my 20x10 wheel....... Click image for larger version

I grabbed the only two wheels that were correct and put them in the bed of the truck. I noticed the messed up 305 which wasn't really that off because it had a bulged which I was sorta of expecting but didn't think to much of it. Got home and I touched all 4 and saw the issue right away lol

Well he gave me a clue in the beginning which I should have been wary of from Rhein out. But he had to pause and think on how to make each wheel weight weighting in at .25 oz. He was trying to do the simple math of making 1.50 oz and split that into .75(half) to even it out.... That's 3 weights per side.... I stood there just in awe and had a thought to my self.

Honestly not to worried about because it's damn near the same tire as the MT street comps I ordered.

You fit a 305 on a 10" wheel?

Didn't know that. I thought a 295 was about max on a 10" wheel.

It really depends on the brand too. Nitto runs smaller than a lot of the the bigger company's so I've been told.

Yes nitto is more narrow. But in reality a 10" is fine for a 305.
