Sportlines and 20's

Question for anyone with an S197 running Eibach Sportline springs, and 20" rims. What size tire are you running. I'd love to see pics also. I have searched for hours, and couldn't find what I'm looking for. I'm ordering new wheels next week. My current setup is 19x9.5 with 275/35 all the way around. I'm thinking of going with 20's to fill some more of the gap, and I don't want to go staggered.

Thanks

Thanks caballorojo! That setup looks awesome! Do you happen to know the offset on your wheels? It looks like they tuck in the the fenders pretty well. If they where out a little further, and didn't tuck, do you think they would rub when you hit bumps?

If you looking to change your wheels and/or prefer the look of the 20's with the 3.8" sidewall, that's fine.
But if you're just looking to close the gap about a 1/2", 275/40R19 tires would do it also. (4.3" sidewall)

I thought about that, but I would like to stick with Nitto NT555 and I haven't found them in that size. I kinda like the look of 20's also. Not ruling the 40 series out all together, but I'd have to find a different tire.

Just thought I'd mention it just in case.
Yeah I noticed the limited sizes available for the Nitto NT555 for the 19" wheels.

Yea there is some room, I want to put on some 305's in the rear, kind of pushing it with 9.5 wheels but there is room. I have a pic of someone's black roush that was for sale, they have some pretty wide meats and lowered on these wheels if you want to see it. It was a black roush that was for sale on Craigslist when I was searching for one.

I went to a friends house yesterday and test fitted their wheels on my car. They have 20x9's with 275/35's. The fit was great, so that's what I'm going to go with. Thanks for all the info guys!

Very nice, that's a pretty tall tire on back. You're on Sportlines? Do they tuck?

Typo man... I amm sorry 295/30 20. And they look and height wise are an exact look for the 255/35 20. Ya, that woulda been big lol. Doesn't truly tuck but so damn close it looks like it. I never rub though

305/35/20 on coilovers. You'll be fine with that set up if your worrying about clearance issues.
