Handling problems with the 8.5 rims, AM says 245's are max some say 255 with fit and most shops will put 275's on but that would be not so good.
9" rims would help and then 275's at most. AM site sized 275 on 10" rims.
I figure if I keep my four stock tires intact: P-Zero 245x40x19's I can sell them for more to off-set the cost of a new set-up. Pinch your tires and they will not perform to spec.
I can also see if one was to be in an accident due to a blow-out and you had 275's on a 8.5 rim...you wouldn't do well in court because you ignored the manufactures recommendations.
Anyway...I want to put 275's on a 19x9" rim up front and the 2013 GT/CS is lowered 1".
Has anyone had a problem with rubbing on 275's up front. I know you can't put 10" rims up front and most recommend 10" for 275's but I believe it would work.
Yes but I have a 2013, gotta have 19" and it's lowered an inch" so 275 on a 19x9"???
I need a square set-up, 275 P-Zero's for winter, and maybe when a grand falls in my lap two matching 19x10" rims with 555's for summer drags.
I don't want to rub (275's up front). I don't want a staggered 255/285 (bad handling, P-Zero biggest 275) and I don't want 255's square (Not much bigger then my 245's).
See my dilemma, I want the perfect All-Season set-up. It's the Northwest, 555 in 40's with rain?
265's at all 4 corners on a 9" wide rim
