Hey Jake - Just like Smoked had said a 295/35/20 would work great. Depending on how much power your cars making the Nitto might be too much tire.

When I say too much I mean that it's going to have an incredibly soft contact patch - This is favorable for higher horsepower cars as they're going to lock up more effectively than say my '08 Bullitt that's making little to no power Another small downside in my opinion is the shelf life of the tire itself. While it's an all around great performer the mileage you're going to be able to get out of them will be down there. Depending on how you drive you might be able to stretch them out but I've seen guys go through them anywhere between 5-15,000 miles.

Here's a link for our 285/30/20 Tires as well as our 295/35/20 Invo

Drop me a line if you're to have any other questions and I'm here to help.

Im still pretty much stock besides a cold air intake, a throttle body space, and an axelback exhaust so power wise im essentially stock. What kind of tires would you recommend?

You can narrow it down some if you specify what your looking for in your tire:
1) Summer tire OR All Season tire ?
2) Corner carver OR dragger ?
3) Long Tread Life OR you don't care
4) Comfort OR you don't care

I have 19x11 rear wheels with 305/35/19 nittos and 19x9.5 front wheels with 255/30/19 nittos. Looks good no extra room in the rear.

Yea they are a little pricey and I am stock for now working on suspension with plans to SC later. I wanted a big tire and there are not a lot of choices with a matching front with correct dia. 295-35-20R, 275-35-20F Nittos.. A little over $1000 for the tires not to mention the lightweight 20" wheels.. That hurt..
