19" DRs - Don't Exist

I've been looking for 19" DRs to fit my wheels, but the only size that I can find is the 345 for the Vette and a 305.

Does anyone know of a 265-275/19 DR? I have NT05Rs on 17" Kosei, but hate swapping them every week. My DD's are 265 PSS, and honestly I can't hook until 4th gear unless it's hot out (I have LSD). Power w/o traction sucks

I seriously don't get why there's no 19's, the market seems wide open for anyone who wants to jump in and make their money.
20" DR's are available for why not 19? Heck if I had a company I'd make some and have the only 19" DR and have no competition in that segment.

Unfortunately I know of no drag radials in 19", but we do not carry many brands of drag tires, just Hoosier and BFGoodrich. You may want to try a vendor that handles Nitto or other brands of drag radials.

You could get a *little* more grip over the Pilot Super Sport with an Extreme performance tire like the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 or BFGoodrich Rival.

Im the same boat as you op. 18's seems like the only way to go imo. Going to 20's will be a smaller side wall and less traction.

Anything change here? I'm hoping I've missed a new development.

the reason they dont exist is because most of the people who want that sort of performance will realize they will be faster with smaller wheels
