Hello

2011 TDI.

Looking at a set of wheels. 20x9 +48et wheels.

I do not plan on lowering it, so wanting to run a larger tire to fill the wheel wells.

Any input on sizes to consider? Would love pictures of your setups also


275/45/20 seems too small IMO.

There are already lots of threads on tire sizes as this subject comes up quite often.

^he's right.

get a wider aftermarket wheel. 9" wide wheel limits your tire width. and my guess is youre going to need spacers.

though i do think there's an OE benz tire size, 285 x 50 x 20 that could work, just don't think anyone has tested it

@agravadr do you think a 20x9 ET 48 with a 275 45 20 will need wheel spacers? From my searching it seems like a good setup that will not poke out or rub. Am I wrong?

OEM 20s are 57mm offset? You're looking at 48mm, so: less distance from the mounting surface to the center of the wheel, so: it should stick out more than the OEM 20" setup. I don't think 11mm is enough to rub on the fender, so you should be good. Do a test fit and report back!
