What tires to run on 19x10 and 19x9?

Hi!

Thats my first post on this forum and Im already asking you guys for help and some advice.

I found some nice 19 inch style 132s, they are 19x10 and 19x9 and here comes my question, what tires should i get? I'm using my car everyday so I can't really have them streched or so.

I like mimalmo's set:

with 215/35/19 front, 235/35/19 rear. But i think its little bit too much strech at front. What you think, would 225 at front and like 245 rear work?_a_

You're probably going to need spacers to clear the suspension up front, and possibly to clear in the back. As far as tire sizing goes, it really will depend on what fender work you may be planning. I would recommend at least rolling you fenders for a fitment like that.

Sure thing I got my fenders rolled! And yes, spacers are needed, Ill have 10mm back and 20mm front spacer.

I looked around little bit, and I consider buying 225/35/19 at front and 245/35/19 tires rear. They will have little stretch but not too much, kinda good for daily-driver, what you think?
