here is a picture of 19X10 +25 with 275/30/19. it is lowered so you will need to modify your fender liner so it wont rub if you want your car to be that low. if you dont want it to rub, you can also run 265 tires. if you want to go 285, you will need to roll your fenders

handling is improved but i think its mainly on the tires, not the wheel. if you are going to track the car, i would run 18" wheels. tires are cheaper and the wheel is lighter. handling is also better with 18" than 19". when the tires are too thin, you compromise your handling a bit

however you need the extra 1" diameter for a big-brake kit...

for your front, i would recommend running 235 and you will be just fine
Hoa, you think you'll be able to fit 245/40/19 front and 275/35/19 rear without problem?

on oem or higher offset wheels, the rear wont rub but the front will. it will rub on the fender liners on hard turns. i wouldnt do it. it will also offset your odometer a little as well

i would go 275 at most. any wider will make the tire wider than the wheel. of course you can fit wider tires than 275 but its not recommended

Hi Hoa,
I just ordered my wheels and tires. The tire guys are trying to jerk me for $50 to reprogram the new tpms. I feel like this guy is full of crap and I can do it myself through the i-drive.

Am I correct in thinking this?

Did you have any issues with your new tpms?

thanks budd
