tire sizes

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I have read some where someone was saying that a 245/30 up front is better then a 235/35. I was going to put that up front with a 275/30 but the tire guy said that the front need to be a 35 to balance out the height front to back. Is this true? Just need someone who is knowledgable in the stretched tire department

"Tire guy"? More like he does something else for a living.

Hey, you need to post the rim diameter as well, that will impact the overall diameter of the set.

The second number (30, 35 in your examples) is the sidewall height, and the number represents a percentage of the first, which in turn is the width of the tire.

Well I mean stretched is not something they really go buy.

19X9.5 22 offset
19X10.5 22 offset

Is 265 that much different from 275? As far as grip. i know its bigger but is it that much noticeable. I would say 285 for sure.

sweet. Thanks. My car just sits VERY low and I have the stance thing going on. So Im just trying to make sure I get this all right.

My tires are to stretched that i had before. Im still wanting low but meat and grip. I know 265/30 is decent and still works well. Just read about the front being able to run the 245/30 thats all
