I have the stock tire setup. Just wanted to say that these wheels are the most difficult to clean.

Yes they are difficult to keep clean but I like them. There are 275/35/20's on the rear and I want to put 295/35/20's on and was wondering if any issues?

Thank you for that information. I doubt that 295/35/20's will rub. Will soon find out and report back.

295/35/20 should be just fine man! It's about the same diameter as 295/25/22 and as the 295/30/21 that I run no problems whatsoever

I believe the craziest you could go is 265/30/22 in the front and 305/25/22 in the rear

Please do. I am very sure that you won't rub but I am curious to know if the bigger tires will make the car feel a little sluggish?
The jump from 275's (27.6") to 295's (28.1") is 0.8" or 4/5" (close to an inch) larger in diameter... Will it be noticeable? Your speeedo will be a bit off a bit.
