Thank you. So it looks like I would have to get a 285 tire? Can't go any bigger?

I feel like such a noob

I was looking at these tires, heard their pretty good. Problem is, I just woke up not too long ago and I can't seem to wrap my mind around on how to read the sizes here...So which one would I be looking at?

MT will soon be selling their radials in a 20'' size (305s). That will be great for the guys still running 20'' wheels. It will give us another option other than just Nittos.

I ran an M & H Racemaster 275. Just about the same overall size as stock and they worked real well:

Thank you.
I can set you up with some 18" TSW Nurburgring and Nitto 305/45/18 tires. I already sold a few sets and will have pics soon.

What they said, I love my forgestars and the MT's are nice, 305/45/18's

I also use the stock 20 up front...
