Actually got these mounted a while back. 255/35/19 Firestone Firehawks on 19x8.5 (ebay seller...ehhhhh) View attachment 89603 View attachment 89604
So I want to confirm you had to change out your front rim from the stock 8" width to the 8.5"? The 2.0, from what I understand all have 8.0 width up front only the Quadrafolgio has the 8.5" rims width in the front. Reason I ask I have a 2019 sport with 19 x 8 rims (i have not verified this but that is what the window sticker states) styled like yours in the darker color and they have 19 x 225 all around the stock issue rims. However, I don't like how they look and they def went way under when they selected that smaller width tire. I would really like to move into the 255/35/19 using my stock wheels but many are saying it's not possible for different reasons. The other concern is in the front are there any issues with the tire rubbing on turns or u-turns or parking etc...

Just got some Federal Evoluzion ST-1 255/35/19's mounted onto new 19x8.5" wheels - rides really nicely and no issues with fender rub or bottoming.

I'm pretty sure the factory wheels without the staggared option are 19 x 8" rims you say 19 x 8.5" did you buy some wider wheels say QV front wheels i believe are 8.5" wide. I would love to put the 255/35 on my 19 x 8" wheels but I keep hearing I can only go to 245? any thoughts

Looking up at entry #10 pics Wow, are you sure you don't have 8" wide rims. The stock 19" rims on a Guilia 2.0 are supposed to be 8" rims. If its a staggered set up the rear is a 9" rim and the front is an 8" wide rim. In other words did you special order replace these OEM rims or are they the factory original. Reason I ask is I do have the same style OEM rims in a darker color that is 8" wide according to my factory window sticker. I guess it could be possible at some point they put on wider OEM wheels I have 2019 what year is yours? I would like to get the same exact size and tire model and size as have here in 255/35/19 looking at the Firestone Fire Hawk Indy 500 model as well. Lots of people are telling me it's too wide but it looks like you pulled it off also are there any issues with rubbing up front?
