widest tires for m219 wheels?

I am just curious if anyone has tried 255/40/18 and 285/35/18 Pilot Super Sports on these wheels. If so...pics would be greatly appreciated! Thx!

Reviving this thread....in hopes anyone has tried 285 width Michelins on these rims ! I want to keep the M219 wheels so i'll buy another 2 rears and put them up front as well. I'd like to run the 265 up front and 285 rears.

Any help is much appreciated !

i dont see why not. I think 285s are the max on a 9.5 rim so I would expect some bulging depending on the tire. Though I think because 275 is considered ideal for that width you dont see it often nor is it typically recommended.

Also just noticed you're gonna run a 265 on the front as well.. i think that combo is going to hurt your responsiveness... but no personal experience to back that up.. just an observation.

I feel like the stock tires are already bulging on my 219.

I'm running 255/40 and 275/40 on mine. Stock ZCP ride hight and they are chunky. Front wheels rub the liners very very slightly, but I also have 15/12 spacers.

I would stay with OEM sizes, but I have seen 255/40/18 abd 275/35/18. The 285s on a 9.5" wheel isn't optimum at all. If you run spacers on the front you may get some rubbing, not because of the width but the height.

This sounds like a set-up i'd like to look into (minus the spacers for me) Do you feel any lack of response or any disadvantage to having 265 up front? Would you happen to have some photos?

Thanks!

Steering feels the same from factory size. Here are some random pics, let me know if you need a particular view.

The front head-on looks much better than stock! Thank you. My goal is to fill in the front fender well just a little more. If I could ask for one more pic at your convenience it would be a quarter view that lets me see the side of the wheel a little and the fender space too, like this example, but for the front of your car. Thanks again !

255/40 and 285/35 Michelin Pilot Sports here, with 15/12 spacers respectively. Been driving it daily for the past 2 months, no problems whatsoever.

Thank you so much. Perfection at 265 up front i'd say. Seeing this helps a lot since I have the same wheels.
