Anyone with lots of miles on 245/35/19 & 275/30/19

I am running 235/35/19 & 275/30/19 and need new fronts. I have tuned out plenty of understeer with coil overs and camber plate, but not enough for my taste.

I want to change to 245/35/19 & 275/30/19 (1% difference), has anyone run that setup with long term mileage (25k+) and not had issues?

Not a good idea. Stick with proper rolling diameters.

i had that option for a while and my transfer case is not happy anymore...it could be due to high mileage that I have but problem started since I took that 245/275.....I am going for 235 and will have to repair transfer case...unless problem is gone after changing tires

I am totsally with you, and learned quickly about the "rolling diameter" dynamic!

I ran PS2's 245/40 front & 275/35 rears on 18" wheels, and it totally rocked!
