The tires arrived today, and I am about to go have them installed. As promised, pics will soon follow.
on the stock rims, 245/35/19 fronts and 275/30/19 rears fit and drive great. You might need to get an alignment (I did) after switching, but there are no problems with tire flex, turn in or anything of that nature. These sizes are the widest advisable tires you can put on the stock rims though.Have the new tires changed the driving dynamics of the car it looks to me that the tires are a bit to wide for the rims ie is it more loose/tire flex on turn in's ? . Reason i ask is the 255's give the correct side wall stiffness based on wheel width, kindly advise
I was speaking to someone at the Tire Rack the other day asking for his recommendation on the best front/back tire sizes on the stock rims as I wanted a bigger footprint. He recommended 245/40/19 on the front and 275/35/19 on the back. The Bridgestone REO50A Pole Positions come in that size and are XL as well. Overall diameter and Revs per Mile (Fronts and Rears) are virtually identical. Can anyone confirm that these will work with no issues? What are your thoughts for this combo?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.
