    I'm wanting to go 275/40 R20 and I want to keep the stock flower wheels and from what I've read they aren't wide enough but does 1/2" really make that much difference for the tire to fit on the rim and have a proper contact patch with the road, and not affect the sidewall performance. Conti DWS 06 state rim width 9-11" for the tire.

    Is anyone running them on stock 8.5" wheels?

    I really want that extra width and according to this, they are dang close to stock diameter.

    Find a shop to put them on for you and see how they are. I run wider tires than really possible on all my cars. Its 50/50 with the shop though. Some just say no and others need the big can of air to bang the bead popped.

    Stock flower rims are 20x8. I ran 255/45/20 DWS06 on stock rims (MKS rims, but same specs as flowers) and it was perfect. Currently have 20x8.5 Niche wheels with 255/45/20 DWS06 and feel like I could squeeze 275's on, but wouldn't try on the stock wheels since it'd bulge too much.

    The DWS06 typically run wider than other brands of the same size. I had 255 Sumitomo's on and the DWS06 was noticably wider (almost an inch). If I can find the picture, I'll post it.

    TL;DR - I would stick with 255/45/20 on stock rims unless the shop will mount a 275 for you to see how it looks.

    Edit:. 255's on stock rims.

    I'm running 245/45 r20 with 1 inch spacers. No issues. Whatever that maths to.

    I would not stuff a 275 on an 8 inch rim personally. Remember side walls is where tires bleed off heat. If they are bulging you are creating a heat crease around the sidewall. This can cause premature failure.

    This. There is a reason tire manufactures give wheel widths for a given tire size

    The stance of your car looks awesome. Are the sidewalls bulging any? Doesn't appear that way in the pictures. Do you have H&Rs? Where did you get the spacers? Your tires are so close to the fender lip, I'm amazed that they don't rub on heavy compression of the springs.

    Yea I have h and r lowering springs. Stock tire size. No rub at all. Well I hit a big hole in the road at speed without knowing its there to slow up and it made a little verp noise on the back. Not enough to make any damage anywhere.
    I went through a couple hub centric spacers to find a good bore fitment for the stock flowers, finally found a good manufacturer for stock spec for stock rims. The fitment was pretty good, just had to zip off the ends of the studs. Little pee pee cut to each on one the tapered end, threads were not effected in any way.
    I also do not daily my car but it drives very well and I love the way it looks with the stance and springs but I hate the bump feel of the springs on PA roads.

    Before and after cutting the studs down a tad. Could of cut less but I wanted to be sure it cleared on the first go. Stock flowers do have counter bores between the lug holes like aftermarket rims so its kinda like it was ment to be. But you do need to knock them down a bit
