I went with 10" x 20" for a 285 tire. This fits perfectly within the fenders and there are many tire choices. Larger tires will likely hurt your performance and mileage.

I have set of new tires from my Supra which is gone.

Front I think 295/30/20 and rear 345/30/20 or 335/30/20

I hope I can fit them in

So I had to look at some of your threads, and found that you've got 22" wheels.
http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=700618

So I assume you've got 305/25/22 on 22x11.5 in the rear then.

Was the other F10 you've seen with 12" wide rear 22" too?
