What tires are you putting on your 20s on the F10?

I would guess the top 2 choices would be the Continental ExtremeConctact DWS vs the Michelin PSS.

Unfortunately the Michelin A/S 3 is not available for the sizes needed for the 20" application.

For OEM wheels of 20x8 in the front and 20x9 in the rear, I am assuming most go with 245/35/20 and 275/30/20 (or maybe 285/30/20).

245/35/20 & 285/30/20.. I have Hankok's EVO 12. Amazing handling and really quiet. Probably the best bang for your buck..

Garage List
If you go with 285 on the rear, you should go with 10-11 for wheel size. 9 is too narrow.

Good advice. Tire calculators show that the 275 aspect is a 10"+ width.

Hey I did you not get my PM for the quote on Michelin A/S tires in 245/35/20 and 275/30/20?

The Michelin tires are great. But if you want more of a summer performance tire then the hankook v12 tires are a great bang for your buck!

Yes, thank you so much for that quote! I believe the standard A/S tires are not that well reviewed. I was trying to get into A\S 3s; however, it seems that they are not available in the 20" sizes we need for the F10. That prompted me to start this thread. I know the A/S 3 is available for the 19 staggered set-up.

Thanks buddy. I guess they may be comparable to the popular Hankook?

The tire debate may be the difference to me for either staying with 19" wheels or stepping up to 20". I know people say the Conti's are soft, but maybe that may work well for comfort with a 20" wheel. I guess a softer sidewall could lead to wheel bending as well .

Ahh okay. Yes the A/S 3s are not available in your size. There are other good A/S tires out there that would fit your 20" setup I could get you pricing on. But if you do decide to go with a 19" setup your choices will definitely open up greatly.
