Tires for my 20" wheels...

I recently purchase a set of m368 f 20"x8.5" r 20"x10" wheels and I want to ask what brand tires will be a good match to the wheels? I heard that Falken 452 have one of the hardest sidewall for a good price.... Any recommendation?

.... but you want the maximum traction & enjoyment out of your car ... that's why I said what I said.

Okay, I guess for little less enjoyment, Hankook V12 will have to do. Fewer smiles on your face when you take those winding roads and blinding corners.

Hankooks V12s get good reviews and are priced well. I just ordered set on the wheels I ordered.

I like Nitto Invos! I have them on both my 550i and my Viper.

I'm currently running on the new Falken FK453 and they are great, especially for the money. Ive used all the major brands in one form or another, Yokohama, Toyo, Nitto, Hankook, conti and michelin, and they all are good in their own respects...almost just personal preference for when it's for a street car.

I've run both the Hankooks and now the Michelin SS. Hands down the SS is a far superior tire for both ride comfort and performance, but the Hankook is more than a cheap tire and offers a decent ride. However I found the Hankook wore out rather quickly.

Tires are the only thing between you and the road, so read reviews on tirerack to see what others are saying before deciding. Sometimes you just get what you pay for with tires.

The Michelins get a little better review on Tire Rack (9.2 v. 8.2 for Hankooks) but at a 50% premium.

Hi bro! We running the same wheels! Go for the Nitto Invo! Im using 245/35 front and 285/30 rear. They arent expensive and are AWESOME. Also very appealing design as always from Nitto hehehe

BTW get a 5mm or 10mm spacer for the fronts...

They look amazing indeed!! It might really be a good idea. These M368 have a cool design and the rears have nice concavity but the fronts really dissapoint. Offset is just too shy and would be best if they were 9".
