Yeah but the 265/50R 20 width is almost 1.25 inches less at just over 10" wide. Apparently the shop that sells Blizzaks up here said they need to be on a rim with a max width of 9.5 inches. They flat out told me they won't mount them on a 10" wheel (grr). The next size up is .25 inches taller and that's gonna cause issues, especially if any snow builds up in the wheel well or on the tires.I have Eibach lowering springs and 315/35R20 NT05R drag radials do not rub. I ran Toyo 265/50R20 snows on stock rims one winter and they are the exact diameter of stock 295/45R20 tires.
I see that you clarified the 265/50/20 will fit on the stock OEM 10" rim, but why won't some shops install it? pardon my questions just want to know what im getting into. lol. Is it that they need to stretch and its potentially unsafe? Im looking into purchasing the Continental Winter Contact at a good deal but i want to make sure its safe to run that size. Thanks in advanceNobody reads the posts or listens anymore. Three season Pirellis will kill you under fifty degrees period eventually if you're a gambler have at 'er. 265s fit fine on our 10" stock rims even though the spec is 9.5" max rim. I've run the Toyos the last two years and they are champs and look almost as wide as the originals and are the same overall diameter and don't throw your speedometer out of whack for those of you who don't have a Trinity to correct. I know, I am a self proclaimed tire specialist, no, really I am, and was in the tire business for years. Hard to believe the amount of tire discussions here, all good fun, especially about the lesser quality, cheapass crap tires on an eighty grand muscle Jeep.
