So I read that stock fits 275/35/19 and 245/40/19 on stock wheels but a much higher offset. I’m just not sure if they would fit or what would be best in terms of staggered tires. I wouldn’t run 265/275s all around that’s a little silly to me. Or do they all need to be the same tire being that they are all the same wheel? I guess kind of what I’m asking is what can I fit the biggest in rear and offsetting with a little smaller up front to have that nice thick rear end?( if that is an option going with all 4 same wheels) with the intention of coil overs in the future. Looking at nitro nt555 extreme or something about that price range for good performace\ tread life but mostly DD sensibly. Now that you mention tramlining maybe something a little softer sidewall.

Here's a couple posts w/ my sedan running 245s all around and running 245 front 285 rear on 9.5s. I ran Nitto nt555s when I had 20s, ok tire but nothing special TBH. My current Kumho Ecstas are a much better performer. The newest G2 version of the nt555s might be a better performer but haven't heard much regarding that.

Beautiful sedan you have. Amazing fitment and clean clean clean!!

So i went ahead and just pulled the trigger on some stance coilovers and I was curious what other parts I might as well upgrade when they go to do that work. Any idea what other parts I should do? I have seen ball joints, tie rod ends, new bushings, but I am still fairly new to the car and have never done suspension work nor what parts are good. I am going to try 245/40(45)/19's and 275(285)/35(40)/19's but I am just not sure how everything works still. It is extremely hard to not what will work/not work and looking online just runs me through the ringer in my head just trying to make sure everything fits,works, doesn't scrape etc etc. For sure not going to slam it but I will probably go fairly conservative on the drop just looking to get a more aggressive look. Any parts that are just a no-brainer?

You have been extremely helpful blnewt, thanks man! See your name all over.

Thanks for the kind words Zack
As far as coilovers and being slammed, most coilovers w/ the exception of Tein Basis drop pretty low even at the highest settings. It won't be slammed but not real conservative either. I would recommend at the minimum a rear camber/toe kit as you typically can't get rear toe in spec without it, and having toe out of spec is a tire killer. Ideally getting the complete F&R camber set is best (I've been running that way from the start). This will allow you to easily get your alignment proper and you can even set caster (I prefer it higher to eliminate or reduce any wander). Rear kits (SPC brand) run about $150, fronts about $400, the rear toe slot needs to be elongated to allow more travel from the new toe bolts, but this is pretty easy w/ a dremel & wafer wheel)

So I found this and price isn't awful but do you also need the toe arm? if so, what would be a good complete set that works?

Will 245/45/19 and 275/40/19 clear Sport Brakes and be able to be lowered on 19x9.5+22? with above arms ^?

That's a complete F&R kit, you won't need toe arms unless you remove the lower control arms (aka spring buckets) if your coilovers are the "true type", The toe bolts w/ the elongated slot will adjust toe back to spec. if you run the traditional OEM type rear suspension (springs separate from the shocks).

If you are getting the "true coilover" setup you can still use the OEM spring buckets w/ that toe bolt setup as well.

The tires on that width/offset won't be a problem but you MUST confirm brake clearance w/ wheel vendor, even some wheels w/ aggressive offsets still have clearance problems depending on design, backspacing, etc.

These are the specs of the wheels from fitment industries. The guy from ESR said it was agains't policy for them to say whether they would fit or not but said it shoulnd't be a problem so I purchased them, but again still very new to all of this so I have no clue.

Here's a sedan w/ the same ESR wheels & specs and they clear the brakes so you're good to go!

You should get hub adapter rings to eliminate or reduce possible vibration issues, here's a set on ebay

And be sure to get new conical/tapered seat lug nuts, your OEM "mag-style" lug nuts won't work there. I like the Gorilla sets FWIW.

What about a 305/25 on the rear? Would that be pushing it? Ive seen some guys running vossens with similar setups run that.

305/30 would be better, only 0.18" taller than a 255/35 in front, the 305/25 will be over an inch shorter than the front tire.

Ok yea i see it now on the tire calculator. 295s are a little harder to source so I may just have to order them online.

Those will work fine, could run 255/35s if you want a bit more tire. Nice width & offset for a good sedan fitment.
