Tire Question

I have new wheels and now I need tires. 20x9 front and 20x10.5 rear. Brand and tire size suggestions would be great, and pics of your car if you have a similar sized staggered setup. Also, will I need to lower my car for this to look good?

FYI...this is pretty much a daily driver with the occasional visit to the track.

Yeah I understand the numbers, just don't know which combo is best for my wheel sizes. It seems like you can put a few different sizes on these wheels I have. I'm leaning towards 285's or 295's in the back and maybe 255's in the front. I just want to make sure it's the right choice.

Hankook Ventus V12's, Continental DWS Extreme Contact's, or Nitto Invo's.

I like that the Invo's don't have directional tread and can be rotated. Obviously not front to back with a staggered setup, but at least from side to side. That could improve tire life given one side could have more wear than the other.

True you could rotate them but it probably wont be needed. My poor tires hate me, or at least the back ones do. theres so much torque in this coyote the backs seem to wear about the same,terribly...

Not to jack the thread, but I have the stock 18's without Brembo's. What is the best combo for regular 'all season' replacements for the Pzero zero's?
I have checked tire rack and they don't carry the Hankook's. Suggestions for improved size/combos?

295/30/20 look fairly meaty. 95% of people with 20's don't have mustangs either. IMO 20's are great for the new mustangs. Assuming your not drag racing regularly they great. They just look right

Honestly ... keep the stock wheels and pirellis and use them for winter driving and spend your money on nice wheels and tires for the summer. Winter roads are going to destroy your new wheels anyways. If you really have the dough to spend then put blizzaks on the stock wheels. You don't need wide tires to drive through snow (narrow can be better) so they are sufficient.
