I’m considering buying a used set of 5068 20” wheels. They look the part and the seller says they are OEM takeoffs, but they are fitted with Toyo Open Country QT 265/50 R 20 tires. Is this a proper fit? I would most likely swap out to the Goodyear Eagle all-seasons anyway, but I’m curious as none of the online tire sellers recommend this Toyo tire and certainly not any 265 size for the 20” wheels.

245 to 265? They'll be tall with the same aspect ratio and would probably have a lot of sidewall flex since they're so oversized. Borderline at best.

To my eyes those seem a pretty atrocious choice...

They would do fine in mud. They are inexpensive. But...
According to certifications here in Europe:
  • their rolling resistance is 50% (!) higher than the best in class. Typically, rolling resistance accounts for about 60% of our energy use, so these Toyos will slash your range with almost a quarter!
  • their wet grip is far below average
  • they are not certified as winter tyres or even All Season tyres
  • they are very noisy
  • the 20in wheels are 8in wide. In principle then you should not go wider than 245s. I plan to put 255s (Pirelli Scorpion Zero All Season: low RR, very quiet, very good wet grip), but 265 is a bridge too far IMO.

I would not keep them.

Thanks for the replies fellas. I’ve already bought the wheels without the tires.

For future reference, at least some tire manufacturers will list acceptable wheel width in their specs on their websites. I didn't see this for Toyo, though. The actual tread width, overall tire width, and width where the tire meets the wheel can vary quite a bit for the same labeled tire width, and overall width will vary depending on the wheel too.
