Ok, so I found you guys during tire search. Salesman told me when I bought car, that my rims were 20x9. Saw your recommendations for tires and picked Continentals DWS06 275/40/20.

They fit on back fine although during install Sears tech measured rim at 8.5. Which conflicts a bit with posts on here saying 8 only. I will measure fronts when i figure out what to do next.

They will not fit on front. Bind inside wall of tire with car in air. Sears tech recommended spacers. I am leaning towards going back to smaller 245s on front for staggered.

1. Any weird performance issues on hard cornering or autocross type with 275 back and 245 front?

2. Do you guys recommend spacers on fronts to use 275s so I can rotate?

Long term I may have to get wider rims or widen the heritage rims at Weldcraft?

1st picture is old 245s (yes bald as heck). Rest are 275s.

**I am also worried about those tires being too wide for rim and causing early wear or danger during hard cornering
