Wheel well question

I'm wondering if 20x8.5 runs with 255/35-20 nitto tires will fit on an 06 GT without making other modifications? Everything is stock on my car

Re: Wheel well question

the overall tire diameter of that combo you want is roughly 27 inches. What's the diameter of your stock wheels and tires?

According to 1010tires.com, the stock is also 26.17 inches in diameter

That doesn't make a lot of sense though

Re: Wheel well question

according to the math your stock tire is actually taller than the 20" one. You should be ok, but every tire manufacturer runs different specs.

Re: Wheel well question

They will fit. I have 255/40/19's on 8.5" wheel on the front which is roughly the same overall diameter.
