Purchased 19x9/19x10 Advan's. Quick tire advice...

Wheels come with 245/35/19 front and 255/35/19 rear (stretched). I am buying new rears. Should I buy 275/30/19 or 285/30/19? I will run the 245/35/19 and debate switching to the 255/35/19 depending on wear, or keep them for a spare set if i get a flat or another nail in my sidewall -___- etc... My dilemma, given my two front options, should I go with the taller 275 or shorter 285 in the rear?

Thanks in advance

Nitto Invo Tire Diameter (fitted currently)

245/35/19 = 25.79"
255/35/19 = 26.1"

to order...
275/35/19 = 26.57"
285/30/19 = 25.79"

275/35/19 but I wouldn't stick with nitto Invos... Not a good tire. I would sell them and get Michelin PSS. Not super expensive and far better performance.

I hear you. Its just for the street I will never track on them...

Got 3 flats in 1 month and it cost me $1600 dollars owning the PS2s. Trying to just change to another setup. Hope i don't regret it

It sucks that you had such bad luck I have not had a flat in 10+ years (knock on wood). Plenty of people run Invo's and seem to like them. I personally would prefer your OEM 18's on PS2's over your new wheels on Invo's. Tires are the only thing that touches the road... This is just my opinion; do as you see fit. I can understand how it would be tough to pay up for tires when you just experienced such bad luck.

I am debating whether to rock 18s or 19s on the road. Ive never owned 19s. So I bought some aftermarket wheels to see how I felt about the handling/comfort/looks. The price was okay so I jumped on these to see the pros and cons myself. I really can't decide what diameter I want in rim size and width so now I get to experience it for myself. We'll see what happens.
Coils are next for me, and then I can keep or sell Advans but I needed to try out some 19s

Finally got them. Running a strong stretch from previous owner who had them on a non m. 255 rear -_-. Im going to get some pilot sports for it and hopefully a 295 rear mounted asap. Thoughts? and a skyline i saw today

For sure, skyline is super epic. RHD obviously! Getting some properly wide Pilot Super Sport rubber on next week so they'll look amazing. The pics don't do the wheels justice.

but thanks! They look okay in pics, in person, the build quality/design are very appealing. Looks really pretty.

I've heard that you have to source a car in japan and import the parts and assemble it as a kit/parts/custom car or whatever it may be. So, import the chassis, motor, body, interior separately. Dunno if it was an old wives tale or true, but thats how i think its done
