I want to replace my stock with 275 or 285's. The stock budge just looks ridiculous, not sure why they didn't put 275's on DCT.
1-Because 285/35/19 is a little larger in diameter than I think makes sense. It's always best to stick with a tire diameter that is close to stock. 275/35/19 is slightly larger than stock and 285/35/19 is of course larger than that. 2- I also like to stick with a 20mm stagger or less (more stagger results in more understeer). I don't see a reason to go to 285/35/19 considering 275/35/19 is a great match for the 10" ZCP wheel.
