depends which spacers you buy. I would suggest contacting Motorsport technologies and getting custom spacers made that bolt on to your factory lugs, then have their own wheel studs built in.

Thank you. I already found a site that custom makes them and waiting on a price back.


I was thinking about going with 245/35/19 front and 275/35/19 rear

Will that rear size fit or do i have to go alittle more narrrow in the rear like a 255?

I'm seeing guys run two different tire setups on this wheel on the forum:

20x8.5 +35 Front

20x9.5 +40 Rear

option 1: FRONT:245/35/20 and REAR:275/30/20

option 2: FRONT:235/35/20 and REAR: 255/35/20


Whats the difference? Which is going to have a beefier sidewall? Seems like these tire calculators don't take into account the width of the rim and the possible stretch.

Seems like 235/35 front, 275/30 is going to be the closest to spec...but i haven't seen anyone with that combo.

ease = no rolling/cutting fenders? I don't want to run extreme stretch either.
