I respect 4corners opinion but I think he means a 265/30/19 not a 255/30/19. I for one don't like the 265/30/19 up front as its not even 25.5" tall and find the sidewall lacking. There is really no issue running GTS sizes on a ZCP car. I have been doing it since the car was new..27k miles ago.

Thanks for the respect dave. I did mean to 265 30/19 I tried to edit it but for some reason it didn't take. The more i read about tire sizes the more I think 18 inch square wheels are the way to go. You're right about the sidewall, if you go to a taller tire it actually will gear the car up a little bit. That's the last thing we want with these lower torque motors.

I also think the engineers got it right with OEM sizes for all around drive-ability. But gear heads will tweak!
