Just curious if anyone is running 20x10" Wheels?

Please share if you have any information on running a 20x10 (or there-abouts) aftermarket wheels. Looking to run a square 265 or 275 setup and was curious if anyone is doing the same. Google images already tells me that this is not particularly popular with the highlander crowd. I come from mostly German vehicles, but love the utility of the Highlander.

Going from 245/55/19 to 275/45/20? Let me know what you end up doing!

This was from the Toyota press release for the 2014 SEMA show car.. but running the sizes through a tire size calculator seems to show big rolling diameter difference..

SEMA Edition TRD Highlander
The Toyota Highlander started the midsize crossover SUV category 15 years ago, so it had a head start on becoming a benchmark. The SEMA Edition TRD Highlander raises the bar even higher, with the most significant interior upgrades of any of the SEMA Edition TRD concepts. In addition to TRD seats, the cabin of the concept Highlander has been completely redone in dramatic full black with red accents, from dash panel to door panels.

The Highlander’s stock tires and wheels were replaced by 285/35/20 tires and 20×10-inch bronze TRD performance wheels front and rear.

With a ride height that’s 1 inch lower up front and 1.5 inches in back, the SEMA Edition TRD Highland is the crossover that crosses the line from popular people-hauler to stealth SUV.

Yes, 275/45/20 is only a 1/10" or so off factory.

Also, here is what Vossen had to say when I reached out to them. Also, below are the wheels I am looking into.



"staggered 9/10.5 +32/45 is an option or +30 alls round 20x10.5

265/35 will be very slight stretch not much. 275 you may be able to get away with it but may also rub if lowered."


Also, I believe 265/35 is way too small.

The question becomes, do I go 20 x 10.5 +30 offset all around or the more conservative approach of 20 x 9 +32 and 20 x 10.5 +45?

I do want to run 275/45/20 and only drop about 1" - 1.5" similar to the TRD example. I really can't imagine it rubbing since it won't be slammed. Anyone have opinions on whether this will work?

i think you'll be fine with +30 all around. In the research that I've done, and ppl in the industry I've spoken with, they doubt I'll get any rubbing with a 275 tire...285 less confident, but should still probably work. Although, I was looking at/asking about 18x9.5 +35 with about a 275/65/R18 tire all around, and not lowered...

I def think 265/35 would be too small of a tire though..

Nice potential wheel choice btw!

Thanks Kayin for posting that information. Whenever I told Vossen that I thought the 265/35 was too small, he said he meant to say 265/45. I still like the idea of 275/45.

Does anyone know a company who makes a slight drop for the HL. Just a lowering spring would probably suffice opposed to a full coilover system.

Look into TEIN...the Sema Highlander in the picture was lowered on Tein customized springs for the 2015 Highlander. So they have the specs....

Here is the Tein article on the 2015 Sema Highlander,

I'm interested to hear what you find out.

Mr. Wolfe

265/35 with lowering springs would "look good" for that euro-aggressive look that I think you're going for (based on your previous comments); but I personally would rather run a 275/45 to give it that "beefier" look to fill out the large wheelwells. I'd also be concerned about my wheels running such a low profile tire as a 265/35 on a heavy vehicle like the HL; although, I live in a place with TONS of pot holes... if you're somewhere with smooth roads, rock on!

Just as a reference, this vehicle is using the same brand (not style) wheels that I am going to order. In this picture, the size is 20 x 10.5" square with an offset of +25. The wheels posted above that I am ordering will be 20 x 10.5" with an offset of +30 so slightly less aggressive. He is finding out the tire size they used.

Thanks Gary and you are correct!

Here is what Vossen just wrote me:

Vossen CV3-R 20x10.5 +25 with 275/45/20 Pirelli Verde AS confirmed front/rear.

So if you run our 20x10.5 +30 I will 100% recommend the 275/45/20 front and rear. The +45 was attempted but hit the inside strut so that is a no go. I think we have all the info we need


Just spoke to Carson who did that deal for the 17 HL.
