What's that saying... The only thing that remains constant is change???
I have yet again changed my mind. This time it's the tire size. The 32" tall tires were a bit too high for me to get the rear to sit low enough for my liking. It was really tight in the dog-leg area (is that what you guys call it - where the sill end and the rear wheel arch begins?), but it would have been achievable. The main problem was the top of the tire being only a couple of inches from the wheel tub at ride height.
I've attached some TERRIBLY POOR QUALITY photos taken from a 4 year old Nokia!!!
Here's the 20x10 rim with the 32" tire. It's a Sumitomo 305/50/20. This photo could easily look like a 17" or 18" rim, as the sidewall matches the rim size pretty well.
From another angle it shows that the tire doesn't really look very wide, even at 305 width. It sits reasonable well on the rim, but you could definitely go wider...
About an inch above ride height (just sitting in the wheel arch, not attached to the rear end)
Worst photo I've ever taken...!
Actually, no I think this one is. It's just to give an idea of what a skinnier / tall tire looks like in there...
I've since fitted 315/35/20 tires, which are a touch under 29" tall. At 35 profile, they're more "Pro Touring" than "Pro Street", but a 4.5" sidewall is still a fair bit larger than the front tires, so it all still looks in proportion.
The tire fitter scratched one of the rims fitting the new tire (yep - just what I wanted!!!), so I'll post up some clearer outdoors pics with everything bolted up when the wheel gets back.
