Default G35C stretched tires

I have a pair of status rims on my G, 245/30/20 275/30/20
on the front they look normal, but on my rears it looks stretched and like shit, if i put 285/35/20 will it get rid of the stretched looks and wheel gap?

the only way to get rid of the gap is to lower the car. if you just use a taller tire it can throw the ABS/VDC out of whack.

^^^ECU monitors the rate at which the wheels turn. I thought the magic number was something like 3% before the traction/VDC controls start to think somethings wrong.............anyhow if the wheels are not turning within a prescribed amount of rpms of each other the car can think it's sliding, then you're going to get a bunch of fun stuff happening.

Best thing is to go and fuss around with some different tires to figure out what you can do to stay within x% of the oem setup. The gap is something else and will need to go with lowering the car like TG is saying.

there are several tire and wheel calculators on the net. I don't have any of them bookmarked on my iPhone so you gotta do some searching. . .or someone else might share.

Gilley has one calculator site he likes to use, I forget what it was since I don't check tire sizes too much. I used to use the miata one because it's been around forever.

Don't go to a 285/35/20. Go to a 285/30/20. It's the proper size for 20s. While you're at it, get 255/30/20's for the front.
