Tire question

Tire guruís I need some help here.

My current setup is Continental extreme contact DWís. 265/30/19 and 285/30/19.

I recently had a blowout from hitting a pot hole on the highway. Now I know that continental discontinued my current tires and replaced them with the extreme contact sports. But unfortunately they do not make a 265/30/19 with the new models. Now I am very happy with my fitment and donít want to change it too much. Would stepping up to a 35 sidewall up front change things too much? Or should I just replace all 4 with a 35 sidewall?

You currently have a 1.6% stagger front to rear and if you go to a 35 profile up front you'll have a -2.3%

It's better to change both front tires to 255/35

Did you have the 265 tires on a 8.5 or 9 inch front wheel?

I have a 9.5 inch wheel in the front and a 10.5 in the rear.

Ok. So I suggest the 255/35 to replace your fronts
