I'm looking to replace my rears with a 275/35/19 Vredestein ultrac sessanta tire. O.D on this tire is 26.6 vs stock 26 even. I have this option or a 275/30 /19 with a 25.6 O.D. Which would be best to not screw up TCS/ Active handling etc. Sorry I am going with Corvette terms! Also any additional feedback on this tire would be very much appreciated.

Where the car really needs more tire is on the front, not the back, to tame the understeer.
Scroll down to the bottom in the thread referenced above. You're right, but it does need more in the back to harness the power better than the 255s can.

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I have decided to go with the 275/35/19 Vredestiens Ultracs in the rear and when my fronts wear out I'm going to go with a 235/40/19 on the front.

^^^^Good Luck, let us know how it turns out. I'm thinking you may have rubbing issues due to the height of the tire.

Hey,
I'm pretty sure seeing the clearance in the rear with a 275/30/19 you will most likely be rubbing if you go with a 275/35/19. you are not really gaining anything if you stick with a 35 sidewall.

You talked me into it [275/30/19] ! But won't it look goofy with a shorter tire than stock. Do yall have any photos of this size? Only one I have seen is the one where the car is in the snow and it's a starefire pearl.

I have decided to go with 265 35 19 in the rear. They're a little wider .5", will fit on a 9" wheel, and are 26.3" Dia. vs 26.1" for stock. Check out tire rack you can compare all the stats. Good luck
