255/30/19 in the front and 295/25/19 in the rears...but I dont know if those wont fit under there without flaring those rear fenders and im not sure about the fronts too. It all depends on your offset and if you can actually find tires in those sizes. Those are the only tires that will keep your speedo correct as with the factory rolling diameter.


pls do not give something you do not know

Please explain to me then.. what I dont know. You gave him the exact same sizes he as on his car now. You have contributed nothing. I gave him the exact sizes he needed for the rims he wanted to get to give him his correct original factory rolling diameter. I then gave him an alternative that was going to be a bit better and realistic for his application and would only throw is speedo off by a 1-2 mph. So what dont I exactly know that you do? Please enlighten me.

there are rims out there designed to fit and tires will not rub your fender or anything under

Wow...Like nobodys ever heard of offset before..... That only plays one of the many factors in choosing the right wheel for your car.

oh yes you can have rims and mounts you want but be ready to check on some adjustments on maybe flaring and similar things

That wont work out too very well for real life driving. You want to know why? With a 235 tire and 8.5" wheel you essentially have wheel over lap meaning the tire is not entirely flush with the outer rim. The same with the 265 and 10" rear wheel. That over lap not only looks ridiculous but the tire is not there to actually cushion the rim incase of a accidental scrape against a curb or anything. The wider tires will fill that gap in and provide cushion for those incidents.

And you are just restating my original post with your above statement.

You have yet to enlighten me on anything so far.

18x9.5 +45 and 275/35-18

Now look at how the tire is almost perfectly straight with the lip but sticks out just enough to protect it. You are saying put on 265 on a 10" wide rim. So not only are you using a 1/2" bigger rim now but you are also using a tire that is .6" thinner???

....Im done with proving myself. I really see no end to this.

Actually those were the size that the dealer and mb tech told me if I were to buy 19" wheel. Instead I'm getting 18x8.5 and 18x9.5 with 225/40 front and 255/35 rear.

...iono. Its a bit on the small side for me. You figure the EVO(235/40/17) is on a 8" wide rim. And they are giving you a 225 on a 8.5"?..The tires is going to look a bit narrow compared to the rims. But hey. If thats what the dealers say then who knows....
