    Question on wheel setup

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello guys, i'm a owner of B8 SQ5 at stock height with stock 21 inch OEM wheels.
    The stock Pzero tires are wearing out at 25,000km which i am really disappointed with.
    I then thought why not to upgrade my wheel setup, i have just purchased the Vossen cvt 20x10.5 ET30 rims.
    However i'm struggling with tire options, my options are :
    1: 285/35/R20 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S (which would give me -4% of speedometer rating)
    2: 275/40/R20 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S (which would give me a big stretch on 10.5inch rims)
    3: 285/40/R20 Michelin Latitude Sport 3 (which i heard to be a soft ride and less handling feedback, and also wears out really fast on stock Tesla)

    I am personally leaning towards the 285 width, but i wonder how important is wheel diameter matter to my SQ5?
    Will the 275s be a huge stretch that it gives me less cornering stability ? Any help will be greatly appreciated, it has been a pain choosing tires.
    Hope all have a great day!

    Iím also considering new tires. I donít recommend 275 on 10.5 width as the wheel lip is further out than tire by 1/4Ē. Too stretched and prefer more rim protection.
