Not sure if anyone can help me out with this but I am trying to get a set of aftermarket wheels for my Model 3. The wheel manufacturer only carries the wheel in a certain width.
- Wheels: 20x9.5 & 20x10.5

I am trying to see what tires I can put on these wheels because I have been using a "tire size comparison" tool and the dimensions are off.

-Tire size they recommended: 255/30 front & 275/30 Rear
-Tire size I was playing with on the tool: 255/35 front & 285/30 Rear

I am wondering if anyone has an ideas, I am going for a clean look, i don't want the tires to look stretched or for the wheels to stick out too much.

Thanks!

The guys at Getyourwheels.com suggested 20x9 245/35/20 -32 and 20x10.5 285/30/20 -45 for the set of Vossen's I ordered. I suggest reaching out to them. They have a chat you can reach out to them with during the weekdays. They also have some pics of different wheels with different sizes on model 3's to help you decide.

You don't have to purchase anything to ask questions. They are really helpful.

Thanks for the kind words @buddyhydro

@zivicIRL We have not tested a 255/35/20 up front but there's enough room to fit that in there. 245/35/20 matches better with the 285/30/20. The 255/35/20 would look a tad bigger up front. The 20X9.5 and 20X10.5 setup sounds like the HRE FF01 setup.

It's a good fit but you will have very very minimal stretch. I wouldn't call it stretch since it's within range of the tires recommended width range but some people would prefer wider.
