Stock suspension and rear rims 285/30/19 or 285/35/19

Anyone has pictures? on stock 19 wheels non zcp
Will be running stock 245/35/19 fronts and rears dont know yet which one to get? Which one will rub on stock edc suspension? Which one would work better with the front tires.

285/30/19...285/35/19 is much to tall imho. Also keep in mind a 285/30/19 is an OEM fitment for the GTS.

The DWS is an all season tire and I would pass on these, unless if thats what you are looking for. The Hankooks are a decent tire but more for show than go. I had the Nitto Invos which I feel were better than both the tires you mentioned, and now I have the Continental 5Ps which I feel are an awesome tire definitely along the lines of the Mich PSS. They make this in a 255/35/19 and 285/30/19 setup. Also the Pirelli PZero is made in this setup but are expensive and wear extremely fast.

The Conti 5Ps are nice and wide..

No not with the OEM ZCPs and with the OEM ZCP drop. Can't speak on the 220s, don't think there will be though.

285 is the max width for the 9.5" 220m but I would go with a 275/35, especially if you're going to keep the 245's up front.

Yeah, 275's are a better fit. Personally I prefer stock sizes on 220's but a lot of guys are happy with 275's. You really need 10" wheels for 285 width.
