Short answer:

Probably not, people have run wider.

Longer answer:

It depends on the rim offset as well as the width, so we can't say for sure yes or no. Measure 5mm farther out from the current tire and that's where the new one will be

I have Goodyear Eagle Sport tires, and they're decent. They're a high performance all season tire if that's where you're looking to put your money. Not too hardcore that it's not streetable, they're actually really good for daily use (Better in snow than my winter tires were too)


I run 235/45/r18. 235/35/r19 I think are the same size total diameter, but you can google it easy

I do high mileage so ive gone through many sets of tires the best ive found that last long and wear best are the Michelin tires all season ones. 20,000 miles on them so far with virtually no wear

I had perelli they were shot after only 25,000 but were rated for 45,000, they cost about 500+ the michelin cost about 700 but if you factor in the wear it might be worth the extra, for a track and other you may prefer sabers option i have not tracked my car so i couldnt give a review on that but my tores stick good even on rocks i go about 40 mph on dort roads fine, rain does good, and generally all road sticks good

4GECLIPSE27 will become famous soon enough
Here is with 19x8.5 +30 wheels, 225/40/19 tires.

I want a little wider tire next time I buy. Probably want 235/40/19.
