While they will fit on the rims - IMO those sizes are a touch wide for the stock sizes. Not sure if there will be any rubbing issues on the front or not. Are you running stock suspension? any adjustments to camber etc?

I'm sure you can but that doesn't mean that's the best setup for you or the ideal tire widths on the OEM 19's.

I don't know the yoko AD08's width on the 275/295

My opinion is that 275/295 on OEM 19's irregardless of what tire manufacturer is too wide for the width of the wheels.

If you want a plus one size from OEM, I'd stick with 255/275

Stock suspension just lowering springs

Just noticed you have springs listed in your sig - oops. I would think you would be fine, I have not run the AD08's so not sure how they fit.

Many people have run 275's up front for the track (I do, but on 18's) and have not had any issues. Just make sure you keep the rolling diameter the same (or very close to stock) and dont go with a taller tire.

I have 295's on my street setup in 19's and dont have any issues, but I have a 10.5" wide rear wheel. Again, I think the widths are a too wide for the stock set up but its up to you. As mentioned 255/275 might be better for stock.

I assume you want as much rear tire as possible to go with the supercharger! Being local, would love to check it out sometime!

They're going to be pinched and your tire guy will hate you, but they should fit. The Yoks are comparable in width and sidewall stiffness to Hoosiers and it's not uncommon to squeeze their 285's and 295's on 8.5 and 9.5" wheels. But yeah, less than ideal for sure, especially on a street car. I understand the reasoning if you were in a competition class that limited you to OE wheel widths. If you're trying to go for a "stockish" look maybe get some ZCP wheels to get the extra 0.5" of width, your tire guy will thank you, and the extra couple of pounds of wheel weight won't hurt you with 500+whp

I think it's too wide for stock rims.

Just buy a set of new wheels

That is WAYYY too wide. The tire will protrude way beyond the rim...and while it may "Fit"...it's going to look like shit!

Advan AD08s are a very wide tire in general. They will be too wide for the wheel, and the sidewall will bulge.

not neccessarily the wider the tires the best set up for the car. with a stock wheels max i would put is 255 front and 275 rear.... although on the ZCP wheels you can go up to 295 rear....

what about running 275/30/19 and 295/30/19 on 19X9 ET22 and 19X10 ET20? will this scrub up front or out back? may use dinan or ground control coilover kit in the future but this would be on stock suspension for now.

thanks for the help folks! I bought BBS CH-Rs wrapped in RE11 so I should be fine for sizes. Thanks again!
