19" Tyre Size's

Hi guys, I'm now looking at buy new alloys as the MV4 (225) alloys I have keep cracking and its annoying me!

If I stick to OEM wheel sizes what tyre combinations can I use? I want to have a higher profile than 30 on the rear to try and help preventing the new wheels cracking!

All information is appreciated!


Thanks,
H

You aren't going to get a wide tire that is not a 30 series on the rear and have it look okay.
Get some good wheels.
Forget about anything that is gravity cast and go with a low pressure cast or rotary forge wheel.

Is it not due to the 30 profile that the wheels are cracking easily? Are the wheels from CM Wheels in this category you mention?

Thanks for your help with this!

Don't know..
I looked up some pricing and based on that I'd say probably no.
