Default I dont know what size tire i should get

ok so I am trying to figure out what tires to buy
its either 245/40/19F 275/35/19R
or 245/45/19F 275/40/19R
I am kinda wondering if the 1st choice might be to low profile and 2nd choice might look like to much rubber..I hate the look of the stock 235/50/18 and I hate that truck tire look of alot of side wall..but I dont want to little sidewall.

245/45/19 is what comes on the '11 non-Brembo upgraded 19" wheels if that helps your decision at all.

Here's some pics of mine with 245/45/19's before I switched out the wheels. --> http://www.flickr.com/photos/jsnyng/...7625218693778/

You don't like sidewall? Then you must want to put 22" wheels with 30 series tires on; you know, those things that look like rubber bands.

Sidewall helps protect the rim, gives you a better ride and handling and helps with the retro look. Rubber band tires makes your car look like a clown car with circus midgets getting ready to jump out. And if you're not careful, they'll use your car in the chariot race for the remake of the movie Ben Hur.

In all seriousness, have you tried using a tire calculator like this to help figure out some dimensions? http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/infoTireMath.dos

No I dont like to look like I am riding around on balloons. If I wanted a bunch of sidewall I would buy a truck


that is the look I am shooting for..But I guess that looks like a clown car huh

I'm pretty sure that GT500 is rocking 255/40/19's up front.

those look awful..I dont like clown cars that it looks like balloons on it and it sticks out past the fenders looking like some piece of crap.
I guess if I crashed into a river I would be ok cause it would float downstream

looks like that GT500 in pic i posted is a 40 up front and 35 in rear.
