So I'm looking to get new tires and was wondering if anybody has staggered 245/45R20 in front and and 255/55R20 in the back? Or just has the 255/55R20 in general. I want to know how much it affects driving and if there's any negative side effects of the 255's. I read that it causes gearing issues and I would not want that at all, I have an M6 if that makes any difference.

you'd want to go 255/45 & 245/45. [corrected]

The 255/55 is a much taller tire - there's 30mm difference in sidewall height between that and 245/45.

that much of a difference might trigger ESP error codes since the front vs. back tires would have very different rotational speeds with the two sizes you proposed

I think you meant to type 245/45 on the first line, didn't you?

If you have 9" wide wheels, a 275/40/20 tire would be a great choice.
Trust me I wish. But my options are limited to my wallet size and that means taking what I can get. I'm almost bald enough from driving like an idiot to have them look like drag radials all around so I'm getting what I can until I can get what I actually want.

If you presently have 9" wide wheels, a 275 tire is affordable. For example, at Tire Rack, a Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 Ultra Performance All-Season 255/45-20 tire costs $152.55. The wider 275/40-20 tire costs $171.75- a difference of only $19.20 per tire.
