    Winter Tires for my SC and 30mm Wheel Spacers

    Hi There,

    I am looking to change over to Winter tires but would like to go for a Bigger profile. For what i have read, its difficult to go below the 20" Wheel size but what is the maximum profile that can be used to prevent grinding? I believe standard are 275/35/20 and was looking to get a set of Michelin LA2 tires and would like to o for something like 275/55/20.

    I heard this too can be doe but requires wheel spacers. Is 30mm to much and what would be the impact of putting on the spacers?

    Kind regards,
    Chris

    My experience with wheel spacers is they cause your wheel bearings to fail sooner. YMMV.

    Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.

    Oh, Thats not good news, is there a certain size that causes this or any? Any other concerns with the installation of Spacers. Does suspension require any mods?

    Gotcha. If it was a pre '10 I was going to suggest dropping to a 19"'. I can't remember what if any 19" wheels fit or don't fit the 2010+ SC brakes but maybe someone will chime in.
