New tires!

I got the opportunity to get a great deal on some NT05Rs 400 mounted and balanced for 2. The thing is size. They are 305-35-19 would that fit on my stock brembo wheels?

Just give Tirre Rack or your local Discount Tire a call and have the size of your wheels handy. They'll be able to tell you right away how they'll fit, or if this size combination is recommended.

Your stock Brembo wheels are 9" ... no, a 305 will not fit on there with any sort of useful contact patch.

The thing is 305 are normally too big for a 9inch wheel. But NT05s run narrow. So I'm looking to find someone that has them so that I can see how bad the bulge is.

Nitto Recommends a 10" rim minimum, with 11" being preferred. Just because you can stuff a 305 on a wheel doesn't mean you're getting "305" worth of contact patch. Its a waste on money to try to put those tires on those rims.

NT05R D.O.T.-Compliant Competition Drag Radial Tire

I had 295 NT-05s that were perfectly flush on a 10" rim.

I got them for 400 installed. For the pair. I might not be putting all 305 down but I need tires. Figured if it was safe enough to drive then I'd be ok
