I need to replace the factory Pirelli's on my car. What's the biggest size I can run in the rear? my car has the factory 19's on it, lowered 1 inch with the Steeda suspension. I was comtemplating getting new wheels with a staggeres setup but want to see what size can be on the factory wheel 1st.

How wide are those wheels? 9"? If so, you're likely safe using a 285/35, 275/40 or 35.

If 9" wide, better stick to 275/40 or so. Most 285s are getting pretty pinched on a 9" wheel.

I'm picking up some used DF5 wheels on Saturday. 20x10 in rear 20X8.5 in front. Recommendations on tire size? Do I need a new tune from VMP to make correct the size change? I have a SCT Tuner.
