Trying to explain it without sounding ignorant, I know a lot of people put bigger wheels on-why not just bigger (taller tires)? Cheaper and I think it would look cool--even if they were just on the rear. But wondering if they would rub--I know there would be speedometer issues but I wouldn't mind that. Somebody must have tried this right?Dunno if it's the tallest, but stock is 235/50. Kind of puzzled why you'd want to go taller? Many here have gone a size lower and wider..245/45 if I recall..still close to same rolling diameter for speedometer accuracy..
One huge advantage of your 19" wheels is that you could now fit a Brembo brake package. Brembos are a no go with our stock 18" wheels.245/50 @ 27.7" tall and 9.6" cross section vs
235/50 @ 27.3" tall and 9.3" cross section.
I'm currently running 245/45/19's (27.7" tall and 9.6" cross section) on Ford Racing 19x9 wheels and they fill up the wheel wells nice and don't rub and the wheels are offset more towards the wheel wells.
I need to mention that the dimensions are from the tire size site on the web, actual dimensions of tires vary with each manufacturer, I'm running Bridgestone Turanza Serenity tires.
