Hey everyone,
I am trying to get the
Velgen Split5 Wheel 20"X9" And 20"X10.5" and I am wondering what the best tire size would be. I still have the stock wheel gap. Also what kind of brand would you recommend? I am looking at Nitto Invo! Please let me know if you have any pics of tires and how they look like please post them!

Go by what the tire manufacturer says not some random chart off the internet. Some 305's will fit a 10" wide wheel, but most will fit a 10.5". Here is a snipit from nitto's website for the NT05 in a 305/30/20

305/30ZR20 103W XL2073207.227.2412.3210.5-(11.0)-11.51929@5032.91

You'll notice that in the sixth column over from the left it shows the minimum width-(recommended width)-max width.

Another good reference is Tire Rack, and to further illustrate I Bleed's point, here's what I had to deal with the other day:

All of these are 305/30r20's, but tread width vary from 11.1 to 11.7, because Ferrari, Audi, Porsche, Mercedes, and Ford asked Michelin for a tire specially made for their supercars. Also, duh, the bigger the tire, the more expensive it is :
305/30/20 - $534 , 305/35/19 - $423 , 295/30/18 - $381

If I didn't get such a deal on my 20s, I'd go just big enough to clear my Brembos, and lots of the excellent budget tires don't go that large (Federal ss595, Bridgestone RE71, BFG Rival-S)

If you're not doing track days or autocross and looking for a value, what about Kumho Ecsta PS91? $157/front, $228/rear

I wow thank you so much for that. Actually i researched a lot and I am thinking about the Michelin Pilot Sport 4. I need to invest in good tires. Every tire speicalist i ask gives me a different answer tho!

Mps 4s are good tires too, depends on what you're looking for, and what you're doing. I think mps4s you can go 255/30 and 295/30, which should have a 27" tire diameter (so your speedo is still dead on) and still fit pretty nice. Anything taller or shorter will start knocking it off. Rears like $350 and fronts $320.

Yeah i just need good tires for the daily drive in rain and sun! Id rather spend a little more. They either recommend 255/35R20 and 275/35R20 or 265 or 285
