Ok so...i decided on the black chrome wheels.

19 x 8.5 50mm offset. Now the question is, what tire size? I want the widest tire possible, without rub, if lowered.....and I don't want the tire to look to bulky (dont want to lose the low pro look)

Thoughts?

If you get a tire with a few less revs per revolution, you'll improve the speedo accuracy. It shows about 1.5 mph high.

Just need the same size as what u have for your stock 19s! There will be no rubbing issues with your wheel width and offset since they are basically stock size and will actually sink when lowered! Some of us are lowered and running 25mm spacers with out stock 19s and no rubbing issues at all! If u want a good look while lowered I suggest u consult first and run a little more aggressive set up before buying these! U might regret it once lowered!

What do you mean "more aggressive set up?"

PS, i already bought the 19 black chrome wheels (partially because theyre still covered under my wheel/tire protection package from infiniti).

All i need now is a tire to run on them. Wideeee as possible, without rubbing, while lowered.

More aggressive would be your wheels sitting more flush to the fender!



This is what your set up might look like once lowered thats why I recommend a more aggressive set up!

Also, like I said, go with the oem tire specs since the wheels u bought are basically the same specs as the oem wheels!

Yea! If u want it flush! 25mm should do the trick!
Ok spacers it is....But I still haven't figured out tire size. I want wider tires.

Why would y have to go wider? Wouldnt the oem specs be sufficient? Also, for what purpose?

I just want wider tires. They look better, plus more traction.

Wouldnt the looks be dependent of the wheel width? I mean oem doesnt look stretched on your wheel specs so I dont understand the looks department!

Try amd look up widest tires for 8.5 wheels then
