Tire Size Recommendations!

I just ordered a set of 19x9.5 SVE Drift wheels with a 35mm offset for my '14 GT-P. Since I didn't have quite enough money to buy tires with them I'll be keeping my OEM 245/45r19 Pirelli's P Zero Nero's on for the time being. My plan is to ride out the winter with the Pirelli's and then buy some new, better fitting, tires next spring.

My question is, what size tires would you guys recommend I buy? How wide would you recommend I go, keeping in mind that I have stock suspension and no plans to upgrade it anytime soon? I am not looking to stagger and I'm not looking for anything too low profile, I'm okay with some sidewall.

Thanks!

Okay, thank you! Any recommendation on brand/model tire for a good mix of street and all-weather performance?

Tire Rack has great info/research on their site. I would check them out. I haven't had a chance to replace the tires on my mustang yet, bought it used and the tires still have good tread left, but the tires I loved for my G35 were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Positions. Maybe check them out in a 275/40/19.

Thanks guys. It looks like 275's will be my best bet all around. I'm anxious to see how stretched the 245's are gonna look on a 9.5" wide wheel.

Here is a shot I pulled off Google images of someone running 245/45r19's on 9.5" wheels (front's only). Doesn't look too bad, but thankfully, it won't be permanent.

I love the 285/35's, but they seem to be quite a bit more expensive than the 275/40's for some reason. Maybe it's just a more rare size.

I'm running BFG KDW's...they weren't nearly as expensive as the stock Pirellis...those were $900 for two !!! The BFG's I got for $1200 for all four. But you are right, they are a bit more and being 19's doesn't help either.
