    Help with tire selection

    Need to buy 2 new rears for my G35 cpe & was wondering would a 245/35 work. If so, what should I run on the front. Maybe a 225/35 or 215/35?
    My setup now (5zigen SC3000) w/ Tanabe DF210 (1.7, 1.4), rolled fenders
    Front Specs: 19x8.5 +5 offset 245/35/19
    Rear Specs: 19x9.5 +5 offset 275/30/19
    Wanting
    Front Specs: 19x8.5 +5 offset 215/35/19
    Rear Specs: 19x9.5 +5 offset 245/35/19

    Use this calculator so you can see how you new size compares to your old: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direc ... reMath.jsp

    I would move your front tires to the rear and put some 215/35-19 on the front and when those rears wear out put some 245/30 or 255/30 in back. Those are smaller diameter, so they may not fill out the wheel well that good. If that's the case try some 225/40-19 in front with 255/35-19 in back. Ebay is your friend for used tires to figure sizes out. Then you can spend your money on good new tires when everything is to your liking.
