NITTO NT05 sizing....what do you think?

Hello All,

I'm planning on running a new set of tires for street and track use
I decided to go with Nitto NT05s.

I'm running a 19x9 and 19x10.5 wheel set up.

With the sizing available on the tire...

My real options are to run

245.35.19
275.35.19

I know its a bit narrow for the wheel...but wanted to get the opinion of the forum

Any help would be great.

Thanks!

I do not think that would be a good setup for the track as that much stagger will create a lot of understeer.I run a 275/35 18 square setup for the track and it works OK with reasonable balance.Why not look at some other tires that might be a better comprimise?
