Just put 25 mm spacers - don’t think it was worth it. Unless you plan on upgrading your tires.

I plan on putting on 265 or 275s - so hopefully I will feel better.

Haven’t really noticed and driving difference either yet.

Added pictures to show before and after.

Is that on the factory 20” rims or third party rims?

Those are factory 20” rims.

So I couldn’t wait anymore and had to put new tires on!

I put 265 50 20 Nitto Terra Grapler G2s on her.

Looks way better - no rubbing, no noise and looks “Non-soccer Mom-Ish”

If you are getting new tires - get the 265s!

Btw - I have 4 of Continentals 255 55 20 that came on the car available for sale.
They have about 36,000 miles them. No repairs or patches.
Figured someone might be able to use them - didn’t want to just throw them out.

I finished her off with rails and a roof rack.

The tires are great - highly recommend them.

Roof rack is actually really noisy - wind drag.

That is poorly designed roof rack, the deflector should be angled more that would help big time with that wind noise. The one I got makes noise but not as many others that I have heard in other SUVs
