Style 230 Fitment

Just put on my Style 230 19 inch wheels and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. I ended up using 235-35-19 on the front and 275-30-19 on the rear. The tires fit the rims perfectly with no excessive sidewall bulge. There are no fender clearance issues.

The handling, steering response, and handling are excellent. Running a couple extra pounds of pressure in the rear, I feel the stagger has not been compromised...at least for driving on the street. I'll let you know how a track day turns out.

Thanks for the contributions from members that helped with my decision process.

Wheels look great! Thanks for the info on the tire sizing too, I'll definitely up size once my RFs are done.

Any reason why you didn't go with 245/35 in front to go along with 275/35 in the rear?

Wow the 275's definitely change the character of the rears! Looks like there are actual tires back there!

Style 230 Fitment

Using 245's on the front would have caused the front tires to be taller than the rears. By using the 235/275 combination, the tires are almost identical in height. Actually the rears are 1/10 of an inch taller.
