Will that give me roughly the same look as my stock set up? I like the way it looks now.

Any suggestions on tires? I currently have Michelin Pilot Sports, but don't want to spend that kind of money, I don't put many miles on it, I don't track it, just some fun spirited driving.

My wheels are about the same as yours; 19x9 et 20 and 19x10 et 22. I have 5mm spacers on the front. My tires are Michelin 255/35 and 295/30. No rubbing but the back tires bulge a little so I will be going to 285/30 next. I had 285/35 previously but the sidewall height was too much. ZCP suspension.

I keep hearing 255/35 and 275/35, think that's what I'm going to go with.

It will look similar and no worries about rubbing. You could even run some spacers down the road if you choose to go more flush.

I have spacers now, so I'll keep them and see how it looks with and without.

Not sure what tires to get, was looking at Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 or Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's. Any preference on either of those?

I know a couple of guys with the Indy 500 and like them, plus they are inexpensive. I went with conti ECSís and really like them.

I've had both on my oem 359s. I prefer the Indy 500s.
