Tires are in!
Man these things are monsters. Continental DWS 06's in 255/35/19 on OZ Superturismo LM 8.5"/44mm offset. I went with all seasons because really I have zero grip issues with the way I drive even on 225/40/18's and it would be nice to sell my winter 18's.
I'm shooting for a little more grip with the comfort of the 18's and the look of my 19's. I get them mounted next Monday I sure hope I figured this out correctly and they do not rub on stock suspension.

Well it was a long night of trial and measuring. I think it's a bust.
I even mocked up the size on my original tires by building them up with weather stripping to match the size of the 255/35/19's they are just to close for my comfort with the 44 offset. I think the ideal offset for this combination would be 35-38. I will be returning these and only going up one size to 245/35/19 which should work fine with my 44 offset.

If I didn't already have the rims that I want I would probably order the lower offset. Maybe someone else can continue my journey in the future. I'll post pics of the 245 when they are on.

Oh and let me give kudos to https://www.tirerack.com chatted with support on the website and they arranged free pickup tomorrow. That's really nice to be able to make a mistake and they just pick up the tires. It wasn't even a negotiation I just said I ordered the wrong size and they said no problem we'll pick them up tomorrow. Great customer service. (y)

I absolutely love this size!!!

Wow these look fantastic. 245/35/19 will definitely be my goto size with the stock offset. I will eventually try a set of 255/35/19
s when I pick up a set of 35et rims. But for now I'm super happy with how these drive and look. Say goodbye to my winter 18's I'm running these bad boys year round. No more looking ugly in the winter. What do you guys think about running 38 psi. I still want comfort for day to day do you think that's to low?
Everyone fills these up to 44psi.

Tested the speed with GPS app today on the way in and the car looks perfect so I didn't have to go in to OBDEleven to adjust the speed setting.
