smallest rim width... Toyo or Falken?

Who has the smallest 285/25-20 tire? I have heard that Toyo T1 proxes
and Falken F452 has small rim width.

You would think that the Falken FK-452 would be more narrow than the Toyo T1-R, but member "Money99" has found out other wise. He tried to use the FK-452 as a replacement for the T1-R because they are backorder, and he said they are rubbing where his T1-R did not. You might want to PM "Money99" if you have any further questions to see if you might be running similar fitments and if you might run into similar issues.

Here's a link to his thread - http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=127722

Jepp! Har bestilt 20" Iforged Essen med sort senter. Har bestilt KW2 også og er spent på hva som går på uten subbing i bakskjermene med senk. Vurderer Hankook 265/25-20, men synes det blir vel tynne "slimser" .

T1-R & 452s are both about the same. ... I use both and they are the most common tires to stretch
