Seems everyone goes smaller wheel bigger tire but I'd like to stay "sporty" with a 20x9 +38.. Discount Tires website says the Drag DR76 will work but I feel that may poke out too far in the front.

Maybe a 265/50-20 or 275x45x20 tire?

Thoughts?

Welcome to the site, taylorrrray!

The 20x9 ET+38 DR76 fits, just bear in mind that this wheel is going to sit nearly flush with the fender which will limit how big of a tire you can go.

For reference, the 20x9 ET+38 is going to sit about 1.5-inches further outwards when compared to where your O.E. wheels sit now.

Yeah i was just wondering if anyone was running 9in wide wheels, Seems everyone goes from 8.5in on here.

Nearly flush is fine I just don't want them to poke out past the front fender. Do you guys have a tire size i should order from you that you think would work the best?

And since I have you hear your site only shows TPMS sensor rebuild kits? What if i wanted two working sets of wheels do you have the option somewhere to purchase full sensors?

255/50R-20 is a for sure option and you may be able to fit 265/50R-20, but a test fit to check tolerances is recommended as you may rub with this size at near full steering wheel lock.

As for TPMS, we do not offer them individually online, or in other words you can't purchase just sensors online. If you add both tires and wheels to the cart, however, you will be prompted for brand new sensors.

Didn't know which thread to post to get help.

I have a set of AG wheels laying around that are 20x10 +35. They seem to fit with a little poke about 2" and no inside rub but my issue is I haven't gotten tires yet. I'd like to go with 275/45/20 general grabber atx 3's. Anyone have any suggestions to see if I should go for it? Thank you.

Matt from discount tire helped me on here with my complete setup. Im sure he'll be able to help you once he get in tomorrow. (if he doesn't have Tuesdays off) he has killer prices to :cool:

I would think that tire would be a little too aggressive in that size for the limited amount of space you're going to have, Pretty tall sidewall. I went with a little more sporty street style tire than a atx tire in these sizes.

Anyway you look at it at least from the information I have gathered its going to rub, all depends on how far left & right you want to turn. lol

Thank you very much for the Information. I understand. I would really hate to end up rubbing full turns. I wonder if lifting it a few inches will help.

I think a lift will help but wouldn't necessarily be enough for it not to rub at all on full lock. 20x10 +30 is very aggressive for the front end. maybe a 265/45-20 tire wouldnt look to stretched on a 10.
I take delivery on our Ascent next month I'll let you know if 20x9 +38 with a 265/50-20 tire rubs like crazy, or if there is still room. (y)

Oh wow, thank you very much for your reply. I hope it doesn't rub for you and I'll be patiently waiting for your results. If I end up deciding to just go for it, I'll post my trial and error. Thanks again.

Hi, Scottie D.

On paper, the 10-inch width coupled with the low offset is aggressive and with tires mounted you'll more than likely rub at near full lock of the steering wheel and also under full suspension compression due to the poke.

As mentioned this fitment is aggressive on paper so since you have the wheels it may not hurt to find a shop with a tire to mount up on one of the wheels to check the tolerances.

@taylorrrray Thank you for the kind words!

Hi, that's a great idea, I'll call around to see if a tire shop will do a test mount for me. Once that's completed. I'll reply to the post. Thank you very much for the information and suggestions.

The brand is "Drag" on those wheels, model DR76. I was looking at those the other day but can't find a lot of info on the brand. I have been looking at a couple Enkeis - the XM-6 you mention and the YX-5 - both in 20x8.5 +40 though. 245s on a 9.5" wheel would probably be too "stretched," unless that's the look you're going for.
