Right now i am running 295/35/20 rear, 275/35/20 front nitto invos. My rims wiegh 27 front, 29 rear, each ofcourse.
I am never going autocross my car, its a auto, just drag strip.
What is the best size of rims and tires i should buy, i really dont want slicks, i feel like im lieing to myself, the car really will never grip like that on the street.
Will 19s make a huge difference? Or do.you guy personally think my 20s are right choice to stick with.

For 20s you are actually doing really well weight wise. Honestly just buy some 17" dark stars and some 28" Hoosiers for track days. Your 20s will NEVER hook like slicks on 17s lol. They can chill in the shed all year or during the winter and come out when you're ready to play

Get yourself a set of 18x10 Drifts when they come back in stock. They look sexy and are a great size and fitment. Take those to the track if you go, get a set of DR's for them or Toyo R888 if you track your car.

Gotta agree with jayman, light wheels plus drs for drag, 18's offer many more sizes and allow for a slightly taller sidewall

Spacers are fine depending on the kind you get and how big you need to go.
