10.5 width Wheels with 285 michelin tires.

Does anyone have any pics of 10.5 width wheels and 285 michelin tires or any other tire? I want to know if a 285 tire will look flush with a 10.5 wide wheel.

285 on a 10 is flush. If you plan on getting that it will have a little stretch.

Here's forum member mgcyr's VS8.2 with that setup.

So if I go 295 rears on an xdrive dropped on ACS with a 40 offset what size profile should I get in the back with what size tires in front on a 9 inch wide wheel?

I wasn't able to find a right tires size up front to go with 295 rears. This is the issue with having a xdrive car.

for RWD cars the overall diameter doesn't matter as much as i've seen people run 255 up front with 285 rears etc.... but that might freak out the xdrive system since the overall diameter of both sizes are different.

If you plan on running 285 michelin, i would stick with a 10" wide wheel if you don't want stretch.

But if you go with 285/35/20 and 255/40/20, wouldn't that rub if you're lowered on Eibach/ACS springs?

Yeah, I wouldn't do that setup. Best is 245/35/20 front and 285/30/20 rear. Offsets are also a factor in rubbing.
