Rear wheel and tire size

So I've seen a few members with various wheel and tire sizes on the rear. So far sounds like the 285/35R20 will run without rubbing issues but that was on a 20x10 wheel. Now I saw a 20x10.5 with a 295/30R20. Was concerned with rubbing the fender with the Eibach pro-kit lowering springs. So wondering what people are running wheel and tire combo on the rear as well what does a 20x10 versus 20x10.5 give ya?

My brother has 295/35 on 20x10 in the back with a 1.5 eibach drop n it just misses the fender by very little. I wouldn't go bigger then that!

Re: Rear wheel and tire size

also a rear end does not always sit even between the fenders, especially on a lowered car FYI...

Is it a 19x9? If so you can fit a 275 no problem, a 285 wouldn't look bad either.
