Re: Tune?

Way to big of a rim IMO but if your gonna do it yes youll need a tune if the overall diameter is over 25"

Re: Tune?

Yeah i guessed as much since the guy is on here...not my cup of tea size wise but if you like them go for it. They look like sve wheels....like i said if the diameter is over 25" ( wheels &tires) youre speedo will be off. A handheld tuner will fix that

Are you really sure that your goin for 19's? You better think twice, that is a good looking rims but too big for new edge's... But it's your choice!
If you really want cheap tuner try craigslist but just be sure that it's unlocked.. Even you have 18's w/ low prof tires you still need to retune the odo to be accurate.

I love how these look. The only thing I'm concerned with is that they will fit. As long as they fit it's good to me

A set of lowering springs will get rid of the truck gap correct?

If they are 275's and 19's in front i doubt it.. You'll gonna have issues. But i'm not 100% sure though. Just make sure it's not rubbing.

Re: Tune?

Because he is stock height...come lowering time even a 255 on a 17" wheel would rub in the front and need modification.

They were talking about lowering springs earlier.. So 275's on 19's are not really recommended.. But i still doubt the one shown in the picture is not 275's...

If you really want the rims slap a 235 or 245 and you're all good.. No no to 255... I assume that the rim is 19X8.5 so stick with 235/35 so that you can still lower your car in the future.

Could I do the 245 in front and keep the 275 in the back for a staggered look or is that just all together too big?
