In case you were wondering what a 255/30/19 looks like on the 8" width OEM wheels...

My first post!

I really wasn't enjoying the feel of the standard all season run flat tires, so I mounted a set of Hankook V12 evo2s in 255/30/19 to replace the stock 225/35/19s. They are definitely meaty looking, and were the closest match to the overall height of the standard tire compared to what a 235/35 or 245/35 would have been.

Haven't had a chance to really drive on any twisty roads on them yet, but I have these on my other two cars and they have always been a favorite of mine. Theyre very affordable and for the price point, its among the best in its category for performance summer street tires.

According to the Alfa US configurator if you select 19" x 8" wheels the tire fitment is 225/40-19 front and 255/35-19 rear.

In the UK the Veloce/Ti Sport comes with 225/45-18 Front and 255/40-18 Rear as standard fit.
Should you select the 19" wheel option that then becomes 225/40-19 Front and 255/35-19 Rear as per the US.
All QVs are fitted with 245/35-19 Front and 285/30-19 Rear.

Which wheel/tire option has 225/35-19 tires ?

Update!

After driving on them a little bit more today, the difference is definitely huge. Way more grip on a few specific fun turns on my route home from work. This car should come with performance dry oriented tires from the factory IMO, makes the drive so much more enjoyable.

I'll definitely be hitting some real roads this weekend!


what tire pressure are you running?
about 37 psi all around.

The OEM tires are 225 40R19, not 225 35R19. 255 35R19 is very close to the same diameter, not 255 30R19. I can't quite read the numbers in your picture, so please re-check what size you had installed.

37 PSI seems rather high for such wide tires, that will likely "crown" the tread.

That's with 9 inch rear wheels and 255/35x19 tires.

I installed the 9 inch w/255 on the front about a year ago without issue. Here's the link if anybody want's to read up.

Ahhh, that's right and makes sense! He's running his on rims an inch less wider than yours, so yeah he's right to be at 30 vs 35. I'm running 245/35x19 on 8.5 wheels (tecnicos) couldn't go 255 since i don't have 9 inch wide rims. Thoug I'm curious to know what 245/40x19 would look like and if it would cause any rubbing issues, though this is not as close to the original diameter as the 245/35 set up and the speedo goes from about .36 to -2.79.

Staying with stock rim choices, ATM we don't know what the offsets are. Wheel spacers might be necessary to avoid rubbing. I didn't use any spacers and the fit is perfect.

Why would having less sidewall make sense to mount tires on wheels that are too narrow?
I think the less sidewall you have the closer the tire needs to be to a correct fit to the wheel.

Well from looking at it the pic it does seem that a 255/35/19 on an 8" rim would have to have a similar fit. It does not look like it is overhanging or anything like that. I suppose that could vary according to the tire brand. Personally I would really like to put 255/35/19 on my Gulia's stock 8" wide wheels. It seems like it would work fine just need to find someone who has tried it. This is the closest thing so far and yes I do agree these tires should have been 35 aspect ratio not 30 but from the pic I see they are actually 30% aspect ratio (height). I'm not sure if the extra 5% would make an issue since that over all diameter is the same I know the tires are wider but their not sticking out far enough to seam like there would be an issue.
