I need your help.
I want to mount in front 9,5x20 with 295/40R20 and rear 10,5x20 with 315/35R20.Tehnical it is ok to mount diferent dimensions tires rear/front if the car is 4x4 permanent?
For summer i choice OZ LEONARDO III 9,5 with 10,5.
Now i have ATP MAGNUM INOX 255/55/18 winter tires.

If I remember correctly, the center diff can cope with 4% difference in tyre circumference.
315/35 has 2220mm circumference and 295/40 has 2269mm, so it shouldnt cause any problems. (if you wont mention radical down grade in every day drive-a-bility)

I had 275/45/19 and those were bad on worn road, now i have 265/40/20 in Porsche and those are equally bad when compared with my winter tyres which are 255/55/18 like yours. Its equal size with Caynne Turbo originals, and there is a reason why factory decided that size. Doesnt look sexy, but behaves so.....

Wrrroooamin around with Audi S6 V10 -06, had Forest VeeDub V8 -04, had Cayenne S -04, BMW R1200RT bike, two Soviet luxury cars from sixties

The center diff. is 3/-3%.Check here : Powerdog Industries All two dimensions is ok.
But the problem is the front of the car is up respect the rear.This could be a problem for the 4x4 system?

Not recommended to stagger tires on an AWD vehical unless you get the outside diameter right on both ends.
