it needs to be 265(275)/30/19.... why so many ppl trying to put taller tires than stock on here? you will rub and will mess up your speedometer at the same time.

I've heard of 275/35/19's being safe. Idk about aspect ratio of 40 though.

Hope you realize, you're adding to the sidewall and removing from the width when you do that though.

your speedo is gonna be off by almost 8% if you do this, just as an FYI.

265/30 = 25.26"
265/40 = 27.35"

so your speedo 60mph will read: 65mph

Just lower it instead of compensating with incorrect tire sizes.

The section width does not change with a different aspect ratio. A 265/30 is 265mm wide and a 265/40 is also 265mm wide. Shocking right?
