Pros and Cons of going with 245/275

Someone has given me the following guidance:

"For conservative fitments, we recommend 235/35/19 and 265/30/19. You'll get some (slight) tire stretch, but it eliminates any cause of rubbing. In less conservative situations, we'll run 245/35/19 and 275/30/19"

My question is what does going with the less conservative route mean? What would be the pros/cons?

Thanks in advance!

I am happy, no down sides to my 245/275 setup on H&R Sports.

I plan to stick with stock MSport suspension, does that change anything?

I too run 245/275 and love it. I will go to 285 in the rear when its time to replace. Maybe 255 in front but not sure about that yet.

It means you would be even LESS likely to have an issue. I ran this setup with the stock suspension for a month or two before the springs.

Exact same setup here, Jason.

As mentioned earlier, you have NOTHING to worry about! Good luck bud!

M Sport firms it up just right, you won't bottom out or scrape, good tire sizes...

You'll just loose a little on the MPG end of things since they are "heavier" than the OEM stagger setup...
