Ag M359 Pss 255 / 295?

Hi guys,

Since i am probably going to install my VT625 kit in the coming weeks i need more meat in the back to put the power to the ground. Right now i have the OEM 220M wheels with PS2 tyres in OEM sizes.

I am looking to buy the AG M359 wheels since i love that style. My question is: what is the ''ideal'' tyre size keeping in mind that i will have the ESS 625 kit installed? I thought about PSS 255-35-19 front and PSS 295-30-19 rear. Will this work and still drive/handle good in corners? I dont want a too wide tyre in the front because that will kill the handling.
And will it still look good? I dont want the front tyre to look streched and the back tyre looking absolutely not streched at all if you get what i mean

Thanks!

The sizes you listed will work fine, ideally a 285 series is best on a 10" wide wheel. With that being said, i would recommend a set set of 18" lightweight wheels in a 9.5 et20-22 front and a 10.5 et25 rear with a 275/35/18 front and a 295/35/18 rear.

I understand that 18s would be the best, but i really want 19 inch because i like the looks a lot better.
