Default 2008 ISF vossen CV7 tire size help

Hey guys I have ordered vossen cv7 for my isf, I have spoke to many people but they all have their own opinions. My car is not lowered and I will not be lowering it due to the conditions roads here. If anyone knows the right tire sizes for the front and back without any rub can they please help me out.

Thanks

20x9 and 20x10.5 have a few options for tires. For the offset, I presume you chose the ones that fit the F without much needing to be done to the fender (F:+38, R: +45)

To keep it as close to stock spec as possible, I'd suggest going with 255/30 in the front and 305/25 in the rear. While this doesn't give much protection to the rim of the wheel, it is as close to the stock specifications as can possibly be. I've seen it done, especially the 305/25 in the rear, and it does fit perfectly without any modification, even slightly lowered with springs.

Hope this helps! Post pics when you get everything mounted.

I would go 255/305 as well. 295 rear would work but sounds like 305 might go on without drama. ISFpat's ISF look mean as hell.

Congratulations on the CV7's...they were my second choice as I have the Vossen CV3 and this is MYISF setup based on feedback directly from Vossen:

Front: 20x9 +38 (Michelin PSS 245/30/20)
Rear: 20x10.5 +45 (Michelin PSS 285/25/20)

bnizzle87 is correct that 255/30 and 305/25 match the stock size diameter better but Vossen never talked about those sizes...they said "if I don't want any rubbing problems" than go with the above...oh and I am on stock suspension and I love my fitment! See for yourself below!

Car looks badass ^^

We do multiple ISF setups here and that's the exact tire setup we use as well.

LMAO...I hear you as it looks great but the way the car drives has changed...I am thinking about going back to 19in to get more sidewall so I can drive it harder in fast corners...and maybe even track it a few times???
