If 265-35-20 rubs, it should only be in the front. Right?
Cause I was thinking. Buyng 2 tires, put them in the front to see what happens. If they rub Ill just put them in the rear & get 255-40-20 for the front. They are the same high, but 265 is a lot wider.
& I know its a front wheel drive car, but I want the look of wider tires.

The 265'* are a little less that 1/2" wider. They will rib on full lock turns quite a bit. They will only rub on the plastic inner wheel well liner. It shouldn't be too bad but be sure to let us all know how it works out.

Just curious as to why you only want +20 for the offest you should have somewhere between 35-40 and your centerbore is only 70.30 not 74..........I have 255/35/20'* on my 05gxp and you can't go any bigger in the front

IMO the 20" wheel makes the rotors look laughable.
You will notice a loss in braking and acceleration performance.
I dont notice any loss at all really. I dont really drive hard anyways though.
I also think the rotors look fine.
same here, I haven't noticed any difference since I took mine off,(it doesn't bounce as much now) 255 is the widest you shold go, I would think 245/40'* would be idea. I had 255/30'* and they rubbed a little in the front, but I had 22'* though.
