Tire Size

Hey guys/gals,

Anyone have 275/35r20 all the way around, or know if I'd have any issue? I have the Pirelli summer tires and want to go to the Continental DWS Extremes to "wear" year round (Pirellis are downright scary in wet conditions). Any thoughts?

Thanks, Adam

The factory offers 265/35-20s as an option, they are the same overall diameter as the stock tires. The 275s are going to be slightly larger in overall diameter.

Hey Dave - I actually have the 265/35r20 option on mine, just curious if I could go slightly wider. If so, should I adjust up to 275/40r20 to compensate for the decreased diameter? Plugged it into a tire calculator, and seems comparable.

Tire Size

275/35-20 will fit in the front on the 11-15 (from personal experience can't talk about earlier years) and obviously will fit in the rear as well. Offset and width of the rim is important as well as diameter of tire as I'm sure you know.

On my '16 I have 275/35/20's all around on 20"x10" wheels. No issues with anything.

Thanks all - I am taking wheel width into consideration. Panther, would you mind snapping a few photos to share what your tires look like from the side and rear? Would love to see the stance.

Already got 'em. Look up Niche Targa wheels on '16 GT PP on this site. Or something like that. They fill out the fender wells nicer than stock, and leave enough room for lowering it. (Which I am doing when it gets a little warmer).

Hopefully you are aware of it by now but the 275/40R20 is an increase in diameter and is further away from your stock diameter.

My Saleen has 275 40 R20's on the back and 35's on the front! But not sure what the offset is on the Saleen Wheels.

Thanks for the reminder. I'm factoring that into the decision as well.

A 275/40-20 is about an 1.5 inches larger in diameter than the factory size 265/35-20. A 275/40-20 would be closer to the factory in diameter, just slightly taller.

That should read a 275/35-20 would be closer to the factory in diameter. Just .3" taller.

Thanks! I like the way Panther's setup looks. Probably will commit to the 275/35r20

275-35 is taller than your stock tire. There is no decreased diameter. 275-35 should be fine. I run a 275-35-19 on a 19x9 rim in the front with no issues.

You would be right, seems I can't type anything right in this thread.
