235/35/19 tires on my 19s? Or can I put on 265/30/19s
ones wider but how is that possible...how do they both fit a 9in wide rim when one tire is clearly wider....or am I completey wrong...

What size are your wheels? 19x9 , x8.5? If so then I would go 235/35/19 This is what I run

e46fanatic 04-18-2002 09:25 PM

what ever you do DO NOT GO WITH 235s on a 9in rim. i did on my breytons and now i have to sell them and get 245s:thumbdwn:

Breyton Visions 19X9
Tirerack automatically fitted them with the 235s...whats the dif (other than being wider)

i have one heck of a lip hanging off! if youe decide to go with the 235s let me know ill sell you mine! but trust me dont do it!

Not a problem as long as you roll the rear fenders..
Do you change your suspension or is it stock?

Yes, 245 would be better suited for 19x9 but 235 shouldn't be that bad. The only problem running 245s is that it may rub a bit in the front (if lowered enough). But the 245s will give you a little more protection againt the dreaded curb scrape. :eeps: Did I say curb scrape? Scary thought! It's probably not a good idea but you can have them stretch the 235 over the rim if you want to but just slightly.

i didnt want to go wide in the rear because it makes the wheel look a lot smaller than it really is:

245/35/19 in the rear for 19x9
235/35/19 in front for 19x8.5

e46fanatic (thread revival!),

Can you elaborate on your experience with 235s on a 19x9 breyton magic? I just purchased the exact same wheels and am currently in the market for tires. Like everyone else mentioned, tirerack recommends 235/35-19, but if you think differently, I'd rather go with your opinion since you have the same setup. You're recommending 245/35-19, correct?

What's your offset on your breyton's? Mine is 40. And do you know how much your dinan car is dropped over regular or sports suspension? I have sports shocks with UUC springs, so mine's lower then normal too. Any rubbing issues with your 245s?

Thanks! :thumbup:

WOW 4 years later what a revival!!!

Mikaly 08-08-2006 02:00 AM

Haha, yeah - wondering if any of the original posters are still around?

Well, I'm gonna be going with 235/35/19 all-around like Paul @ EuroSpec recommended unless someone chimes in and tells me otherwise! Oh yeah - I specified the wrong offset in my last post. It's 42 (not 40).

OMG the original posters joined at 1969, I'm not even born yet! LOL
