19x9.5 front wheel + 265/35/19 or 275/30/19 Hankook?

Current tire is 265/30/19 Hankook EVO and it is not enough tire.....

265/35/19 could be to tall, go with the 275/30/19.

275/30

265/35 shouldn't clear

You can also try Toyo T1Rs.
not optimal for performance but they have the stretchy look

That is a pretty bad angle, not to mention without tire spec it means nothing.

My 275/30/19 AD08 on 19x9.5 doesn't look rubber band at all

You need to take into account camber, ride height and wheel offset also.

265/30/19 has TONS OF ROOM

275/30 than in your case

but a V12 isn't a meaty tire

Maybe get some meaty R Comps :P

then you'll want a smaller sized tire

Again the Work Brombachers are my street wheels this is for looks not performance.

The Michelin SS's are on my track wheels.

Did you go with the 275/30 V12s?

Any pics?

I take it you went 275/30 with the +18 offset and not the +13 (W/ 5mm spacer) offset correct?


Thanks!

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my revival of this old thread

Are you dropped with less than a 1.5 finger gap for the fronts and what camber specs are you running?

The 19x10 ET25 is 1 mm inwards from your previous 19x9.5 ET18 setup.. Since I see that you went with the same 275/30 tires I assume you have made the switch solely for a larger lip and/or greater concavity? (Less inner clearance and greater unsprung weight)

Would you have any pics of the current fronts? I would love to see the flushness with the offset and Hankook 275/30s

After 3 months of fussing to get it right im not releasing all my secrets. I went a bit wider with the wheel overall and got rid of the spacer. It is actually ET+20 my fault. Hardest part now is starting all over with sticky RS3s to put the ESS blower power down
