What's up fellas. Need friendly forum advice if possible. Looking for the ideal Michelin PSS tire sizes to run 19x9 et 25 and 19x10 et25
Car is lowered about 1.5 in the front and 1" in the back

I'd like as meaty of a tire set up as I could squeeze. Let me know what you guys think.
Thanks in advance


P.S. My camber as it sits right now is -2.6 in the rear and -1.8 on the front. Want to dial that back as well so I can get more rubber to the road

P.P.S. Tire shop recommended 245/35 in the front and 295/30 in the rear but would like to get your guys experienced feedback.

That fitment will definitely be tight. You are going to have to run a stretched tire. If you want a meaty look a mid 30 offset would have been better. Do not run a 295 though. That will rub.

Probably go with a 235/35 and 265/30 and roll your fenders

Thanks for the feedback Nitrous

I think 235/35 in the front and 275/30 rears to avoid a stretch
Will get my fenders done but should be ok after I adjust the camber as needed

Car goes in tomorrow to cut the fenders. Hopefully does the trick

Yea,

approx 1.5" in the front and 1" in the back

Well, got some new toe arms installed today and after an alignment rubbing is now gone sitting at about -2.3 in the rear which is a bit more then I like. My shop didnt want to touch my fenders said it was too cold and are afraid of paint cracking so till I can source the roll thats where the camber stays.
New problem now though.
Passenger side toe arm is rubbing against my spring in the rear for some reason. Alignment guy said they are installed right but cant figure out why that side only is hitting the arm. Said when the car is in the air it looks fine but as soon as its on its own weight the spring is rubbing

Found out the spring is most likely misplaced in the seat causing it to bow

Set the camber back to -1.8. Found a buddy who's going to roll fenders Monday. No rubbing at that camber except for turns at 25mph plus. Should eliminate that and be all set.

Do you want pics of the wheel/tire or of the toe arms?
