Hello,

I have 2012 premium GTR just bought some black edition wheels and my question is what are some big size tires that are safe to put on?

I see that 285 35 20 front and 295 35 20 would work ? I tried to look up but its kinda all over the place.

285/30/20 front 315/30/20 rear?

Stock suspension just daily drive.

The limiting factor is your BE rear wheel- 20x10.5" et25

285/30-20 fits rims 9.5-10.5" wide, perfect for 10" wide rim, tire diam 26.8"

315/30-20 fits rims 10.5-11.5" wide, perfect for 11" wide rim, tire diam 27.5"

This combination will not work, the front tire is too small in tire diameter for the AWD system, perhaps you mean 285/35-20 for the front which will work. These tire sizes are available in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S which is a good street tire. Both sizes will fit BE wheels.

325/30-20 fits rims 11-12" wide, perfect for 11.5" wide rim, tire diam 27.7"

This tire size can be mounted on a 10.5" wide rim but it is not ideal for best wear and performance. The wide tire on narrow rim will look mismatched with the tire shoulders way beyond the edges of the rim once mounted.

285/35 front 295/35 rear on my blk editions and they look great!
This is fine, not all tires come in 295/35-20 so 285/35-20 will fit both front and rear BE wheels OK. A wider rim will make the same size tire look wider as long as it is within the designed rim width range which it is.

295/35-20 fits a bit better but not that much, it costs more too.
