I don't know for sure but I wouldn't think so. They are only off by 0.3 out of 28in. I guess you could calculate the difference.

Aren't the factory sizes 285 and 305? They show available. Why wouldn't you stay with those? Please correct me if I'm wrong. I need to order these and don't want to get the wrong size. I'd like my speedo to be accurate also. Thanks.

Those sizes are not available in the ExtremeDWS. The only sizes that are appropriate are listed in the PDF file. See the thread below.

From where and how much? TireRack is showing 271.00 plus frt. Much less than the local Tire Discounters. Did you get the 275/35/ZR20 and 315/35/ZR20?

I ordered those sizes. I am getting them from America's Tire at the same price with free shipping to get them to the store. The full price is $1240 with a full Gorilla Lock kit mounted and balanced.

I wouldn't either. If the weather is lousy I won't take it out. I have a number of vehicle to choose from. The stock tires don't work in the cold. So, the options are park it or put winter tires on it. You know my decision.

I think these would be a good replacement especially for track days. In a 315/30-20 for the rear they are still 27.6" diameter. Same as the stock tires. So 285 front 315 rears.

I think I would have a hard time explaining to my wife why I need a third set of tires.
