Hey guys,

I would like to know what is the best tire fitment for 20x10 front wheels and 20x11 rear wheels.

The tires I am considering are the Toyo R888's for tracking.

Thanks in advance.

I have heard for tracking, you should go with a square set up. 285/35/20 fits both 10 and 11 inch wheels.For drag racing, i have seen the 315/30/20 in the rear. Hope this helps.

Go with the 285/35/20 in the front and 315/30/20 in the rear. This is the only 2 sizes the toyo R888 comes in on the 20" diameter. We have been using this setup for the last few years with very good results.

Cant find the 315/30/20 Toyo size here in Kuwait. Only size available is the 285/35/20 in the R888's. Will this setup look ok on 20x10 and 20x11 wheels?? Anybody have a picture of the 20x11 rims with this fitment tire???

Will the 285/35/20 setup look awkward all around??? Need to see what it looks like?? What are my other options?? I would like to keep the larger tires in the back look, but have no idea what tires to even look for. Most of the semi slicks I have been researching are up to 19" only.

Help!!! I am tight on time and have a track event coming up mid January....

Any body have pics of 285 square set up on a 20x10 front 20x11 rear

I was thinking of running my street set up this way with 285 sport Maxx all the way around

I ran 285's all around for awhile on my stock wheels. It looked fine to the average eye, but if you looked closely you could tell the rear sidewalls were more stretched, and the fronts were more squarish.
That said - the best thing you can do is get some 18 or 19" wheels for a dedicated track set. As you've already noticed, the tire selection is much better for the smaller wheels, and then you can get some long life street tires so you don't waste that race rubber dirivng around town.

I ran square before, a little less understeering but still. Good thing is you can switch back to front when front tires wear more like after 4-5 days on the track.
