Tire size question

I have a 13 GT and will be installing Concavo CW-5 rims on it very soon. I am going 20x9 on the front and 20x10.5 on the rear. I will also be dropping the car 1.5-2" with my suspenion kit that will be installed soon.

My question is what size tires should I put on front and back? This is my daily driver, so please keep that in mind as well.

Will the rears sit flush with that size or will they stick our a little. I want them to be flush at the most.

I would do a 295-35-20 in the rear. However...this makes the rear an inch taller than the front.

Depends on the offset of the wheel.

I think anything over a 295 would be pushing it. Unless you don't care If they stick out a bit

My wheels have a +35mm offset and they are exactly flush with the fenders. Your +45mm offset definitely won't stick out at all.

Any of the tire recommendations above with both work and look great. The actual width of the tires will have little effect on how far they will protrude past the fender. The wheel's offset and the wheel's width will be much more of a determining factor in your car's stance. With a +45 offset, your wheels/tires will be nearly half an inch farther in the wheel well than mine, which are a +35 offset and sit flush with the fenders.

I'm leaning towards 275 35 20 front and 295 35 20 rear. Thoughts?
