Ron thanks for posting pics
my main concern is the performance of the tire once it is stretched. and the prtection of the wheel as well.

i took canyon runs going 80+ through turns and didnt even skip tires. i was running 225/40 on a 9.5. same thing with my 235/35's on a 9.5

anyone got close up pics of a 245/35 19 on a 10 inch wide wheel???

I currently run 265's but I've taken a liking to the stretched look

I can also get 255/35's cheap....but I need to see pics of the sidewall coz i prefer really low profiles
