30 or 35???

i am currently running 265/30/19 and 285/30/19 on Volk Te37's

the next tire i would like to get is only available in the 265/35/19 and 285/35/19 size

would there be any cons of going to this size or is there pros to this??

it would be for daily driving and spirited driving no track use

maybe this is a stupid question and i know it is not that much difference in size but maybe the tire gurus can answer this. i have wondered this for some time and now bf i get different tires i would like to know

thanks in advance

i also kept the brands of tires out on purpose bc i didn't want it to become a thread about tire discussions and bickering back and forth, i wanted it to be about tire size only, but if it matters then i will post the brands

thanks

Use this website to compare what you have now to what you want to change to. Take some measurements and see if you have clearance. Goodluck

I think 285/35 is a bit tall. A better fit for the rear would be a 295/30. 265/35 is probably ok but you may get some rubbing.

Only real con is that they will be slightly heavier (and will obviously look a little thicker, more speedo error with the larger circumference.) Biggest problem would be fit but you say you have that sorted - would love to know how. Otherwise the taller sidewall will give you a better ride on the street.

i already know that i can run the 30 or the 35 without any rubbing etc, i am just looking to know what the pros or cons of running a 35 over a 30 are

also i don't think a 295 will fit on my rear rim

ok so if the two tires were the same tire then the 30 would be the better performing tire then??

i know bc there has been a set of 30 and 35 on the there bf and there was no issues with rubbing or such with either
