I had a local Phoenix tire shop tell me that 275/35-19 in rear will most likely rub on the struts. The dealer I purchased the car from won't comment on max size. Anyone else have this experience? Also, whoever does have the 275s on the rears, please send pictures of the direct rear view and 3/4ths view so I can see how well the tire fills out the wheel well. Thanks.

Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Hey all,

I think I am going to go have Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires put on my ISF today if I can find a local dealer with the correct sizes. I have two questions:

1) Is there anybody on this site running 245/35R19s front - 275/30R19s rear in an Ultra High Performance All Season tire similar to the ExtremeContact DWS?

2) If so, are there any rubbing issues whatsoever, and how does the dry traction compared to the stock ISF tires?

I know that several people have reported no rubbing on 275/30R19 rears, but I thought that maybe the A/S tires might have a just bit more tread and potentially cause issues. I am pretty sure they will fit, but I don't want to have them installed and have rubbing issues.

For the last 5-6 months I have been running 245/35R19 on the front and 285/30R19 on the rear on stock rims. No rubbing problems. In fact I just finished a track weekend at TWS with this setup and no rubbing whatsoever. Did not have to roll the fenders. Hope this helps

Thanks A LOT for the confirmation on this. I have been hesitant to pull the trigger on this one, but now I have a little piece of mind.

What exact tire have you been running? I would like to look up the manufacturer's exact specifications on it because the same list size tire can vary in actually specifications between manufacturers and model types.

275/30/19 in the rear is the most aggressive we can do.
245/35/19 or 235/35/10 are the best for the front.


I'll be trying out the 235/35/19 and 275/30/19 on my car next week. I think going to Michelin PS2s.

I have been running Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tires. Wear index 280. I don't know how to download pictures. I gave my wife a new Nikon D90 for Christmas so as soon as I can get my car cleaned (lots of rain during the last week) I will try to download pictures

These tires have been getting great reviews. Maybe I'll jump on these... They are half the price of the Michelin PS2's, but rated hand and hand with them...

I can't find the 285/30/19 in these. Everyone tells me they don'take that size. :-(

Well, I ordered Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires online last night - 245/35R19s front and 275/30R19s rear. They should arrive within the next week. As soon as I get them put on the car, I will post pics from every angle. I figured that by going with an ultra high performance all season tire, I would get the best of all worlds without having to switch tires in different seasons.
