Tire/Wheel Set Up

Recently been looking at changing my tire/wheel combo. Looking at the AMR drift style wheel on american muscle.

Here is my question: If I were to try to run a 19x8.5 up front and a 20x10 in the rear (similar to gt500) what tire size(s) would be best?

19x8.5 - 245/45/19 (I have these now and would prefer to save money by not buying new ones for the front)
20x10 - ??????

thanks in advance

If you're following the GT500 then if the offset is +35-45 then do as the GT500 does 285/30/20

the offset is +48 mm. I recently saw a 2011 shelby at ford with a 285/35/20 in the back and it looked really good but I'm not sure if their body is different and can allow a different size tire.

OP-Good question and Dallas and vSloop beat me to it! We recommend using a 285 on a 20x10 for the best look and and overall performance! Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

Im thinking about getting the gt500 wheels for my 13' gt auto but not sure if i should go with 18's or 19's. Whats the optimal size for performance? also what about tire size?
