Bigger tires

Time to replace my Pirellis and looking at going for 305s in the back. I'm pretty sure I cant do this on a 20x9 rim so what are my options?

You can probably get away with a 285 but that's it. Really for a 285 you need a bigger wheel but I know a few people running them without a problem.

You'd need at least a 10" wheel.

You don't know what you want at all? Wheel decisions are a personal decision. It's hard to give recommendations without knowing what you like. You should also set a budget because when you start looking, things can get pricey quick

I can get a big discount on goodyears but other then that idk. Been looking at falkens a lot. I may just keep my rims and just go stock tire size.

What rims do you currently have? Maybe you can move the rears to the front and get some 10" wide replicas for the rear? Just a suggestion. Then you can fat tire it all around. Saves you from buying a set of 4 rims.
