40 profile on 19s

So how come we cant run a 40 profile on 19s with our cars?

I see every one talk about 265/30/19 - 235-35-19. Which pretty much sucks for traction and protection of the wheels.

simply isnt enough room.. unless youre running a weak offset on a 8.5in wheel. if you want traction, get 18s.

I don't know maybe because it's just not the right size even 235/35/19 is taller than stock as it is.

Wheel protection would be less on a lower profile tire, but traction issues can be fixed with the right tires.
