You've got plenty of room for a 275, probably need to shave the fenders a bit but they'll fit easily, those wheels are pretty conservative. You may be safer going with a 225-35 or 235-35 in the front if you don't want to worry about rubbing.

There is more than enough information on this forum - including photos and measurements - for anyone to figure out exactly how a given setup will fit and look. It just takes a tiny bit of effort.

For example, I keep photos like this with notes on my hard drive.

This allows me to envision what different setups will look like. It's pretty easy to imagine what this car would look like 1" higher or with 25mm more offset.

Write stuff down. Save pics to your hard drive. Make notes. Then you will paint a picture for yourself. Don't ask the community to spoon-feed you information that is already readily available.

Depends on how low you are. I'm on DF210's and run a 20x10.5 on 285/30/20 tires. No fender work done and no rubbing at all. my offset in the rear is conservative. Not sure what the exact offset is. Here's a pic. You can kinda see approximately how far I am from sitting flush. I've been too lazy to go out and measure it. Edit: in case it helps any... the fronts are 20x9 on 245/35/20, no rubbing at all. I don't remember the offset. good luck czr73!



Side view so you can get idea of the ride height.

Actually he was right a 285/25 would fit just fine on the rear of his setup.

Thanks gentlemen.
Ya with those sizes and offsets I would go 245/30 and 275/30. My old wheel setup was about the same width and offset but I went with a more narrow tire setup because I knew I was on keeping these wheels for a short time and gonna get more aggressive wheels later which would require a stretch

This is my old wheel setup

Wheel Size (F/R): 20x8.5 / 20x10
Wheel Offset (F/R): +36 / +42 (+47 with 5mm spacer)
Tire Size (F/R): 225/35ZR20 / 255/30ZR20
Suspension:Tanabe DF210 springs with stock struts
Camber (F/R) : -2 / -3
Fender Mods: None with no rub

This sums it up, the questions have been asked and answered so many times the old timers are sick of answering them, hell most of us are sick of telling people to search so the threads just get ignored. The info is all out there.

True, then I see a thread with a bunch of responses and figure their might be something worthwhile inside and get suckered into answering.

So would you prefer them to start a new "dumb" thread vs. bump the old one that have information in it? I'm glad the person bumped this thread because it was basically dead until it was bumped yesterday.

Well, great sense of community there. I think you need to read the rules again and take a look at why your thread was locked. You were blatantly being a **** when someone was trying to help you, and discrediting them because you thought you "chrysler master mechanic" knew better.

This thread is as useless now as it was then. The OP made the exact same question back in '07 in the first thread link below and even got an answer and then made this lame thread a year later

OR Option B
Do a search and realize there are threads dedicated specifically for wheel and tire questions which has probably more answers than any other thread in the 2GS section such as this one

Wheel width/offset/size and tire fitment Q&A thread

Or this one
