Im finding it very strange as every member was reporting need of 5mm spacers as upper control arm bolt was touching the tire, I double checked the the wheel specs and it is as i remembered 18"x8" and the offset 57mm so thats the only reason i told you about spacers as all 285/60/18 users have them fitted.

My standard (R5) offset was 53, and the tire Falken Wild Peak has a shape that helps, you can see it on the picture

Resurrecting this post!
Looking at some wheels that are 20x11 ET55
Tire size I was thinking was 275/45/20 is this too wide of a rim? Not wide enough of a tire? HELP!

11j with ET 55 can be fitted but in my personal opinion it is overkill (too wide) but 275/45 is probably not wide enough, if you can go with wider 295/40/20 and use spacers 10mm or more (make sure use hubcentric and longer bolts)

Summer tires: I would like to go as wide and tall as possible with 22inch. Currently I have 255/55r18, but they do not look good on my Treg T1 (my view) Would e.g. 295/40r22 rub? Could I possibly go wider? 305/35r22?
I will mount arches soon and I would like to have the same dimension in front and back.

I have tried to read a lot of threads, but I am not sure what I should choose... So, I would be very happy for good advice
I have 2006 T1 265 65 18 works great on and off road running falken wild peak no rubbing stock suspension smoother shifting at a bit higher rpms

hi,
the most important thing you have to remember is the wheel WIDTH and OFFSET, stock touareg 20'' wheels have 60mm and 9J.
i have 285/50/20'' and thats the biggest/widest and tallest tire you can on 20'' wheels,
if you have any info about wheels specs and what tire you want post here and ill help you out if it will fit :) regards, Nikoloz
Hi, thanks. I have a 2015 Touareg. it currently has 275/45/20, but I'm trying to get wider tires. How wide do you think I can go? I wanted like 295/40/20 or 285/45.

Thanks,

I just bought this 2012 with 22" Porsche wheels. I'm picking it up today so I don't remember the tire size other than the rears were 285 wide.

Got another thread going on about these wheels. Apparently they're Rinspeed wheels and rare or something. They are ET50 with 285/35R22 tires. Fitment is excellent with the lowering springs.
