The only issue would be maximum weight/load. Check that.
Typically an suv tire will assume you use it for more stuff. So should be designed for more weight.

Calculating offset with new taller wider wheels is a tricky thing. OEM rears are 10x20 with 34 offset. Was planning on 305's in the rear so to accommodate them and not stick out too far I went with 36 offset for the 10.5x21 wheels. Roughly .28" closer to wheel well, .32" farther out with the 305's. But I'm not sure that will work unless I add a 10mm spacer, which I'm not sure I really want to do. So it looks lke 295's are the way to go.

NM-QV, helpful hint in reference to having PPF around the back rocker area and around the wheel well flair area. I get a sandy rash due to the tire kick, I am sure You will get the same issue if not more due to lager tires and offset. I have replaced my PPF in these areas once already. If you have PPF You will want to pay attention to those areas. It is cheaper to replace PPF than paint, GOOD LUCK and those rims look AWESOME.

Everything fits. Went with 265/40-21 front 295/35-21 rears Michellin Pilot Sports 4S (non SUV version). I could be crazy but ride quality seems better than 20" OEM Pirellis.

It would be great if you did weigh them and compare it with stock. Curious to see how big of a difference you have on these rotating masses.

Can we please get more pictures? Preferably some full front and rear 3/4 views? This looks so good! Interesting finish too, looks lighter than the stock dark gray

I can believe they have a better ride in some situations.

Larger wheels will ride over potholes and cracks in the pavement instead of falling in..because of the larger diameter/less sidewall flex. As long as the suspension is complaint enough to compensate for thinner tire. Which, I guess, the Quad's is.

Looks phenomenal.

"larger wheels will"
My initial reaction as well, but if the tire profile was refused to give the same circumference, no effect from that. And lower profile generally would be stiffer.
So being wider doing a bit of the same thing, but i think probably/primarily the difference in tire brands.

They're quite close to stock in diameter - only about .20" taller. The 295 in the rear is a bit stretched for the 10.5" rim. I panicked that the 305's would not of fit given the offset is only +2 in the rear compared to stock (not to mention PZ4's are the only tire available in that size). And everything I read about 295 suggested 10.5" rims. Offset is stock in the front. Steering is a bit heavier but not so much and barely noticeable. I'll try and get some more pics this weekend.
