Does anyone think King Tuts rear tires look too large for the car? You said no rubbing in the rear right? H&R Sports?

It is a different look, a departure from the "normal" low profile look. I prefer the low profile look though (30 series, 25 series is too low) however it looks kinda of cool with those particular tires as it makes it look like a NASCAR set-up.

The thing I like about lower profile tires is less sidewall rolling when transitioning into corners and a crisper turn-in. The car just feels more responsive and connected with lower profile tires.

Stock height, but lowering the car won't affect whether they rub or not it will just add some negative camber which would make it easier to clear. I like the big tires and the improved speedo accuracy. The sidewall isn't any bigger than the OEM 18" rear tire, but it isn't as bulged as the OEM tire which makes it look bigger. I like a lower profile in the front, but I think a softer sidewall in the rear is a good thing for traction.

Would 295/30/19 fit on a 19x10" rim? Any negative consequences?

It should fit and is within the recommended range of most tire manufacturers. I don't see any negatives unless you like the look of a stretched tire cause you won't have any stretch it will be bulged out if anything.

King Tut - How do you like the Ecstas ? Been a few years since i looked at Kumhos but my local tyre guys just reccomended them.

Thinking of:

255/30/19
275/30/19

set up on stock rims if anyone has an opinion.

Thanks.
Ken

Why are you guys using 30series in the rear and 35series in the front? I thought for a second that the stock tires were set up that way, but I just ran to the garage and did a double take and I have 245/35 19 and 265/35 19

Do not do this. It will look small and retarded. Go 255/35/19, and 275/35/19.

I'm going 255/35/19 and 295/30/19 for sure now.

You can mix and match series...it's completely irrelevant. What matters is staying as close to stock diameter as possible.

Yes, I understand that, but if you have a 19" rim on the front and rear, wouldn't you need the same series front and rear to keep it as close to stock as possible? like I said I have the stock 19" with a 35 series, but if I went to a 20" rim wouldn't I need to use a 30 series on both front and back to match stock size?

Thanks for the info, I learned something new. For some reason I always thought that if you had a (for example) a 27in diameter tire with a certain series (letís say 30) it would always be the same diameter no matter how wide or narrow of a tire you used.
