Need help with tire sizes.

I am currently running stock 19 wheels and tires, but soon i am getting ZCP wheels. I am not sure if i can use my tires on new wheels, or will i need new wider tires? If i need new tires what size do you recomend? Thank you, Ken

Ken I have a 2011 ZCP car and I am going with the M3GTS sizes of 255/35/19 and 285/30/19 rear, this is IMHO the largest tire and close to the OEM O.D. that you can get. Some are running 255's front but 275/35/19 in the rear. A lot would also depend on what brand you want to run. If you want the Vreds you are stuck with the 275/35/19s out back as no 285/30/19 is not available. PS2s have any size needed for the M3.

The ZCP cars run the same size tires as the non ZCP cars, but they are used on a rim that is .5" wider on all 4 corners. The sidewalls actually look like trapazoids.

Thank you so much for clarifying this for me. 255 front and 285 back must look and feel really nice. Thank you!
