I know there must be posts regarding this topic but don't have time to search right now. My wife needs my attention. Broke away to post this topic. Also, just donated $5 to this site because I know I can always rely on getting an answer.

Want to buy tires for 20 x 7.5 rims but don't want 245/35. Not sure why but believe those where designed for a wider rim. Please let me know my options.

So what would happen if you put your tires on a rim 7.5" width? You would be loosing an 1". Side-walls pudge-out.

The suggested wheel width for a 245/35/20 is 8-9.5". You would probably be ok with a 7.5" wide wheel, but it depends if you want that look. The tire would buldge out a little, but that doesn't look all that bad. A 225/35/20 has a suggested width of 7.5-9", but it would be almost half an inch shorter than stock. A 225/40/20 would probably be perfect, but I cannot seem to find that size, so that probably isn't an option.

FWIW, a 235/35/20 has the same wheel specs of a 245/35/20, but is shorter.
