Feedback on 19x10.5 et25 w/ Tires

Since PSS 295/30/19's (rears) are always on backorder, looking for something more accessible.

Been searching thru the forum and found that 285/30/19 seems to be a good alternative for wheels in this spec.

Anyone with this spec have any other recommendations? I'm running w/ ZCP suspension and 19x10.5 et25 rears. Any pictures would be Thanks

I have 19X10.5 ET25 rear and i just installed 295/30R19 tires and there's no rubbing at all.

Hankook V12 Evo2 is much cheaper than Michelin PSS and similar performance. Check the links below for the best price i could find. Free shipping too.

I rubbed with this setup and 295/30 PSS. Maybe the people who aren't rubbing aren't low enough or aren't hitting big enough bumps.

285/30/19 or 295/30/19 would certainly do the trick on a 10.5 wheel. For street use, the following would work:

295/30/19 availability -

Michelin PSS
Michilen PS2
Yokohama AD08
Hankook Ventus V12
Potenza S04 Pole Poistions
Pirelli P Zero
Toyo Proxies

285/30/19 availability -

Hankook Ventus V12
Potenza S04 Pole Poistions
Continental Extreme DW
Pirelli P Zero
Pirelli P Zero Corsa

Here are some images on 19x10.5 et22 (only 3mm more aggresive then your et25) rear wheels to help you visualize

All of these are on APEX EC-7
19x9.5 et22 - Hankook V12 265/30/19
19x10.5 et22 - Hankook V12 295/30/19

E92

In short, yes. Run flat tires have a very different sidewall construction, and therefore feel very different from behind the steering wheel. They can be described as harsh, numb etc. in comparison to non-run flat tires.

But only my rears are run flats. Fronts are normal PSS. The 285/30/19 dont feel much different to my 18's which were 285/35/18 (non run flat pss).

Since it's only the rears I thought the purchase was ok. There's a tire shop selling them for a nice price. I Paid $500 shipped for 2x brand new 285/30/19
