Need Help About Tire Size On Zcp Wheel

my previous thread showed the 235/35R19 front and 255/35R19 on my ZCP wheel, and its a fail http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=617187, then im thinking to get 245 front and 265 rear and check the bridgestone blizzak lm 60 tires again, these isnt any 245/35R19 tires, my question is could i get 255/35R19 front, 265/35R19 for ZCP wheel since blizzak LM60 is very good in snow, or i should get Pirelli Winter 270 Sottozero Serie II 245/35R19 front 265/35R19 rear just for the good fitment?

btw, i like to use blizzak lm60 since lots of ppl recommend those tires, but i dont know about fitment, and i wont listen to my dealership again, so could anyone teach me about the fitment on ZCP wheels please. my dealership is till waiting on my decision.

One of TireRack's recommended 19" wheel winter setups for our car is a 255/35 F and a 275/35 R. They are probably recommending this setup because there's a better match in the front and rear tire diameters - check the tire specs on their website.

Sorry to hear about your continued winter tire issues. Good luck!

Get the LM60 in 255/35/19 front and 275/35/19 rear. They'll fit the ZCP wheel perfectly and won't look stretched. I ran this setup last year and just put them on my car again yesterday. Performed really well no complaints.

This ^^^^

Wider is not usually considered better for snow, but if you're gonna use the ZCP wheels, 255 and 275 look much better, and protect the wheels more.

That makes no sense - they were willing to mount 235/255 but not 255/275? Tell them the M3 GTS uses the same wheels (except black) and it comes with 255/285 tires!

I hate to say it but you need to pickup your car from this dealership and take it somewhere else because they are a bunch of clowns. Good luck.
