You think 255/40,305/35 would have any bad rubbing anywhere?
On a stock suspension; Nope-you’ll be good....The Invo’s really impressed me on the ride quality,handling & driving in heavy rain- even blasted it on the Dragon.
I just wore out the rears from excessive spin.

I think i will give them a try then!
That sounds like a good time, I did check out the Invo's and heard good things about them.

They just don’t like the cold; other than that...Very Good tire.

285/35/19’s on 19x10...pretty square fit & 84” circumference (26.75” diameter w/38psi)
8/32” tread left w/14,000mi.
345’s didn’t do as well.

Hey guys, I just bought Vossen CV7 staggered fitment 19x8.5 +15 and 19x10 +20 rear and I've been told to go with tire sizes of 245/40/19 front and 285/35/19 rear. I've been hearing that this tire size should be fine (no rubbing or issues) however my buddy said I should add +5mm hubcentric spacers for the rear to be more flush but someone told me that 285 and 5mm spacers will cause me problems with rubbing. What do ya'll think? Any recommendations for tire sizes and spacer fitment?

The 5 mm spacer is good call and you should have zero issues.

Thank you for the reply bud! I was nervous that it'll give me problems. What size tires would you recommend for my fitment of 19x8.5 +15 and 19x10 +20

The 285/245 combo as suggested!

Depends on the tire mfg. & your ride height/alignment.

If your alignment specs are stock; you may end up with 15mm spacers on rear's to even up with the front.

I have stock ride height and I'm assuming stock alignment. I bought my 2016 Z certified pre-owned from Nissan this past July.

Unfortunately I haven't picked out a brand I liked just yet. I know I don't need all season since my car fortunately does not see winter. I'm not planning on tracking the car but I do want a tire that performs well, a good bang for the back and something stable and reliable. I was looking at the following tires:
1. Michelin Pilot Super Sport 4S
2. Hancook Ventus V12
3. Nitto NT555
4. Bridgestone Potenza RE11
5. Bridgeston Pirelli

What brands would you suggested for a 245/40/19 and 285/35/19 +5mm spacer spec that will be "daily driven" only during summer, spring and fall? It is completely stored in the winter. Thanks for all your help.

Gais!

I need halp!

Guy around my way is selling some SSR GT10s offsets are a little sketchy.

18x8 +49 front
18x9 +41 rear

front might work but rear has me a little worried.

Will these fit ??? They look too good to say no <3
