You could go with 265/40R19's.

Speedo would be off 1.1% until you either had the dealership program your car for new tire size, or did it with a handheld tuner / procal.

275 wide would be a little too much tire for that size rim.

Brembo's are 9" wide so a 275 fits just fine.

I have run 315/30R19 Hoosier A6s on those wheels (the tires were given to me for free with three quarter tread, so why not). The widest I have gone with a street tire on these wheels was 285/35R-19 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. You can get away with stuffing extra width on that wheel with the RE-11 due to it's ridiculously stiff sidewalls (has also helped my outboard edge treadwear problems). The A6 is even stiffer, so you can smash a preposterous amount of tire on a 9" wheel (guys in F Stock, two years ago before that class went away, would run 315-325mm A6s on all four corners on Forgestars with identical measurements to the brembo wheels due to wheel dimension restrictions).

Yeah you can run wider slicks/drag tires on them. But for street performance where you're actually going to be making turns, you'd want some more sidewall rigidity.

You may want to think about what two tires I mentioned. The A6 is a time trial/autocross tire with a sidewall that is stiffer than any traditional street tire. The RE-11 was designed specifically for people like me who road race and autocross, and consequently, also has an extremely stiff sidewall.

Okay, people run 245s on 8" rims just fine.. So adding an inch of rim width means that the rim is about 26 millimeters wider. So, you can easily run a 270. and then 5 millimiters on top of that is probably no big deal. its not rocket science lol

TireRack.com shows you what the "design rim width" is, as well as the rim width range for a given tire size.

Edit: For example, a typical 275/40-19 has a design rim width of 9.5" with a rim widrh range of 9-11".

BTW...The 3.7L with Performance Package comes with 255/40/19 also, except the rims are only 8.5" wide.

grabber, you said a 275/40/19 tire will fit on a brembo rim, is that the biggest that will fit on the brembos for the back? Also, would you know what is a good All season Performance tire in that size. When my Pzero's are used up I want to get out of a summer only tired.

I have continental contipro contacts front and back all season and they are good in my opinion. I DD mine year round in Wisconsin with those tires. 800 miles a week baby!

275 is pretty much perfect on 9" wide rim, depending on sidewall height and stiffness also. A taller sidewall gives you wiggle room. and some tire mfgs measure slightly different than others.


8"=203mm wide rim and they run 255mm wide tires OEM
9" = 230mm wide rim soo you could run 285 really reasonably. I wouldn't call you crazy if you put a 300 on a 19" rim, but that's just me.. A guy with a carbureted 1999 GT lol

Thanks Panther, I will look up the continental contipro...Its a an all season but a PERFORMANCE TIRE right? Im looking to keep 255 up front but go to 275 out back on my brembo rims, thanks again bro.

That's subjective really.. I guess I don't know how hard core you are..

For example, BMW stocks their cars with these tires.. and bmw is trying to maintain a reputation of being good handling cars.

I have them on my new edge and they stick harder than my stock suspension can really even make use of in a lot of cases.


But a top tier autocrosser is probably going to call them **** so who knows lol. Anything you wrap around your 9" rim is going to stick to pavement like a cat on carpet... and your screwed if any kind of snow comes haha unless you run some super swamper tires.


I once had some 9" wide cobra rims and heres why it sucked:
  1. They were on a grand marquis with outrageous boat suspension
  2. They had 20% tread
  3. Open rear diff
  4. Auto transmission (had less control over what the car did)
