tire/wheel fitment

hello to everyone

was just wondering what the bright heads in this forum think of the following:

i'm about to purchase a set of adv5.0 in 9,5x19 and 11x19 for my 1m. i also want to install a bilstein b16 pss10. now where i'm not 100% sure yet is on the dimensions of the tires so that there will def not be any rubbing once the car is nice an low.

i was thinking of:

245/35s at the front, and 275/30s at the back.

what are your thoughts on this?

With the proper offsets, it should work.

You'd definitely want to go at least 275 in back with a 11" wide wheel.

Why waste those wheel widths on skinny rubber.265/30-19 front and 295/30-19 rear will work even with stock wheels

While it could be mounted, the width of the stock rear wheel is not optimal for a 295 tire.

EDIT: Just checked and the stock rear wheel is 10" wide -- which is enough for a 295 tire (although 10.5 would be better)

Yes, even 275/30 19 should work at the front without any adjustments.

Lot of good suspension options out there that you might consider before jumping into the Bilsteins. JRZ, Ohlins, KW...
