user LEX on LXF hasthem and reported no issues. I dont think he was lowered at all.

I have 265 45 20 front and 295 40 20 rears, I have a small rub front on full lock turns, nothing big.

I have a slight rub when I have 200#+ of cargo in the back of my Magnum.

I have been lowered about 1 to 1.25 inches as well. Hotchkis TVS kit.

click on the link in my sig for some pictures

275/40R20's will fit fine as long as your wheel is minimum 9" wide. A 275/40R20 fits 9"-11" wide wheels, so ideally you would want a 10" wide wheel for the best fit.
If your wheel isn't that wide i suggest looking for a 245/45R20 wich fits 7.5"-9" wide wheels.

Yep that is what I am having to do. The 275/35or40/20 needs to be on a 9" or wider wheel.

The Bonspeeds are only going as wide as 8.5" for there fronts. I tried, but no 9" being made by them for the front. So I am forced to go with the much smaller 255 up front. They are running a 10" in back so the 295/40/20 will fit in back, just will be a tight fit.

I still don't know why wheel Co are not making 9" be the min size width they should start with. Especially for sedans. My Impala SS forgelines were 9.5" and carried a 275/40 so well.

Sure it might fit, but then again an XL jacket may fit you as well, when you only really need a Large. If you just want to throw something on, and don't care how it looks or fits, go ahead. I am just telling you what fits RIGHT :01:

Yeah I here ya. I will look into a 9.5" to replace them when I replace them in a few years.

www.tires-easy.com (biggest tire dealer in Europe) has the Goodyear Eagle RS-As in the 245-45-20 size. If you need all-season (I kind of think you would in Swiss).

If you can get away with summer tires, they also stock the Goodyear F1s so you can stagger 245F, 255R.

I would try and stay clear of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A. It is one of the worst rated tires available in that size. I suggest looking at the Toyo Proxes 4.

Yeah might be tough to get them there, don't know. But there are plenty of online tire/wheel shops that ship internationally.
