Wink 20" Tire Sizing

I Would Try 245/35r20 - It Is 26.8" Tall V/s 26.6 On The Stock 225/60r16
I Personally Would Not Go Any Larger Than 18" Without Upgrading The
Brakes As You Are Hanging Some Pretty Good Weight On The Spindles

If you want a wider rear then you will have to match up a rear wheel with a 9-10" width. Going with 8.5" all the way around pretty much locks in 245MM rubber all the way around, if you do it right. There are advantages to this that increase tire life enabling you to rotate your tires.

255-35-20 is 27" tall...You would exp. a lil rub in the front on the inner plastic fender skirt.

IMO the appearance of the 245-35-20 will look more correct and clean in comparison.
