I'm picking up a set of sport wheels soon so I'll be shopping for tires in the next few months as my base tires ware out. Definitely looking forward to see what the majority is. I'm thinking 255/285 V12s. Definitely want to go wider than stock unless there's a huge price difference.

If you get V12s on them, don't go wider. I say this because I went with OEM sizes and the sidewall in these are hella weak. My car feels all squishy now.

If you like squishy, then by all means get them that size.

245/40/19 and 285/35/19 for Nismo rims. Continental DWs for grip and without being "squishy".

Sooooooooooooooo many choicessssssssssssssssssss.. LOL. I'm leaning towards the RE-11 but they dont make them in 295's for the rear. Guess I'll have to go with 285 or 305.

IMO, don't get 305s. If the tire sticks out at all it doesn't look very good. My stock wheels are 6.5in and my old tires bulged a little bit and didn't look good.

Do you have a need for the 305s? Besides stance? You shouldn't be able to tell the difference between a 295 and 305. Even as far as handling is concerned; it will be neglegible.

I'm hearing people like the stock tires, why not just get those in 295s?

Bridgestone RE-11
20f/25r Spacers
-2 camber all around


285/35/19 Rear:


265/35/19 Front:


Love how the rear looks. The front looks very nice too in terms of width. The only thing that i didnt like too much is that my front fender/tire gap got a little bigger since I went from a 40 sidewall to a 35 in the front.

What kind of spacers are you running? Running camber kit up front?

Does the bolt actually give you any camber in the front?
