depending on the offset you may be able to go with a 245/35/19 & 275/30/19

If you want to be conservative I'd suggest sticking with 235/35/19 & 265/30/19 - that is what I run

Due to the different widths of the wheel your going to need a tire that can fit the width or else the rim lip will stick out further than your tire do which IMO does not look too good and it makes it easier to damage the wheel this way. Mike.

275/30/19 for the rear is very nice but it may rub. Depends on the offset

Why did you buy 2 different wheel sizes?

2 different wheel sizes take 2 different tire sizes. I would have thought that to be common sense.

It's kind of like asking, "Why can't you put an 18" tire on a 19" wheel?"

I do not recommend 245/35 and 275/30 on a 8.5" and 9.5" width rim. For those sizes run the recommended 235/35 and 265/30.

a 235 is a slight stretch on a 8.5" wide wheel

also, here is a picture of a 265 on a 9.5":

I don't have a picture with 275's, but it is a slightly better fit.

Why not Carlos? Im running 235/265 PS2s on my 8" and 9" wheels and think it looks perfect. No stretch whatsoever. I would run 245 275 if it wasnt wider than the wheels. Am I looking at this wrong? The 245/275 is what BMW runs stock on the 545 wheels that are 18x8 18x9.

If I have:

19 x 8.5 ET 35 front

Do I go 235/35/19? Can I go 245/35/19?

19 x 10 ET 35 rear

Do I go 275/30/19? Can I go 275/35/19?

I do not plan on lowering the car.

Thanks,

Dan
