I had heard that going to big or small can caue the cars brain to apply braking or such to those wheels...as it thinks the tire is slipping or spinning.........is this true?

I'm looking at 20x10s with 285/35x20 in back and 255/30x20 in front.

Not if you keep diameters (tire) within no more than 3/4 inch height difference and no less than 1/2 inch. All you have to worry about is offset and tire size.

As far as the car's "brains" go... the TCS/VDC wants to see the rear wheels turning slower than the front. If the rears spin faster the SLIP light will come on and TCS or VDC(if equipped) will be engaged. So when buying aftermarket wheels, make sure the rear diameter is slightly larger than the fronts and you'll be OK.

Good Luck,
