19X8.5 ET 33 19X9.5 ET 40 Tire

Looking to go with MPSS lowered on the H&R Sports either

235/35/19
265/30/19

or

245/35/19
275/35/19

Seen a lot of people on the forum running the 245/275 but my shop guy is telling me not to do it and run on the conservative side 235/265?

What do you guys think? Thanks in advance

Personal recommendation...

Front: 235/40/19
Rear: 265/35/19

This is what I am running on the following rims
19x8.5 +35
19x9.5 +35

The meatier tire looks great on dropped vehicles. I am currently running Dinan springs so my drop is a bit more conservative than the drop on H&R.

I think the 235/35 with 265/30 tire would look too thin, but the 245/35 with 275/35 option would look pretty good but may cause some rubbing issues since the MPSS do run a bit thick. I want to run a wider tire setup.

Cool thanks for the info... would you happen to have any pics of your car? I want to run the wider 245/275 setup too but not sure I will be shooting myself in the foot. Maybe I should try V12's instead of the MPSS? Although the MPSS are awesome tires... ahhh

I'm running the smaller of the specs of 235/35 - 265/30. I like the thinner tire with my drop. I think you need a nice stance to make the thinner tire look good. The ride quality suffers but overall is not bad.
