so right now i have liena corse wheels that are 19x8.5 ET30 up front and 19.5x9.5 ET35 in the rear

I have 235 35 19s up front and 275 30 19 sumitomos with no rubbing, I have my mind made up on a set of PPS's thanks to gary at tire rack.

I would like to know if i cant go any wider on the tires like maybe a 245 35 up front and a 285 30 in the rear

Thanks guys im looking to buy today

Here is a pic of my rears, FML

EDIT: in my other post i said i had 245's up front but they are really 235's

Again im not just sure, im HIV positive you can run 285.30s with no rubbing. Just kinda shocked as to why you didnt ask Gary himself if those would work while youre at it.

I would not go 285's with the Pilot Super Sports. They have a MUCH taller sidewall than the Sumitomo's I would stick with 265's maaaaybe 275's with the Pilot Super Sports. If you go 275 on the PSS you will def need to roll and probably grind your fender.

I'm sure you can get a 285 to fit if you have your fenders rolled with a 9.5 +35. It'll be a tight fit though.

So I guess the 245's in the front won't be an issue for him?

I ordered the michilen PSS 235 35 19 and 265 30 19 to be safe

I checked the specs and the PSS 265 it acutally a hair larger than my sumitomo 275's
