A 275/35 will noticeably taller.. And a 295 even worse

Agree but taller is not always bad. My car looks great and have recieved tons of compliments about the tires and stance. To each is own but I am not a fan of rubber band tires and flats every other week

My goal was to get as much sidewall possible with my 20s. It will not be fun to hit a pothole with 30 series tire and damage my wheel and tire

Just making him aware.. Most people think that a 255/35 and a 295/35 are the same height bc of the 35... It's 35% of the width.. 35% of 255 and 35% of 295.. I have 255/40-19s and 275/35-19s and my front tires are slightly taller..

True that bud, thats why I went with 275s up front. The 255s looked tinny

Yes I'm moving mine to the front and getting 275/40s for the rear .. Since I have k-springs the car still has factory rake.. so that should even up my fender well gaps...
