Noop, I do get a touch of rubbing on the tabs if I hit a massive bump like the Gravity Cavity on the Dragon.

I am via coil overs. I’m on 19x10.5 + 7 (305R) and 19x9.5 +17 (265F) p front just barely tucking tire. Fenders are rolled, tabs have been cut, liners have been slightly cut as well and it seems like the culprit is the front bumper/fender tab. Just wanted to see how many, or if there people, that have done it.

Well, I ended up cutting out the old fender/bumper tab and relocated the bolt further down about an inch and I am clear. Finally.

I'll be joining the 305's club by tomorrow. I went with Hankook 265/35/19 and 305/30/19. For the time being they're going on the stock rays. Also bought some permanent tire lettering, yes I know cheesy.

Hi Guys,
I'm new here and new to the 370Z club, just like to share some photos about Meaty Tires

Not as wide as some here, but I went for what is legal over here and maximum recommended tyre size per wheel width, again due to road rules.

Tyre Brand: Goodyear
Front: 265/40/19 (Wheel is +25 Offset)
Rear: 295/35/19 (Wheel is +12 Offset)

Goodyear have wider treads than other tire brands per width spec.
Example. The 295 has 12 inch Tread and it shows clearly when you see it, compare it to a Michelin 305 or 315, it actually has wider Tread.

Compare the Goodyear 295 to the Stock Nismo Dunlop 285, the tread is a good inch and a bit wider even though they're suppose to be only 10mm difference.

The wall ratio I chose also led to a 2.5% increase in height increase for the front and about 1.2% increase for the rear. End result is the wheel gap for front and rear are reduced, with the front reduced by about 0.4 inch, on top of the Nismo's already reduced by 0.4 inch the front looks lowered even though it is on stock springs and suspension setup.

Anybody know what the tread width is for Nitto NT05's. I can't seem to find it and the tirerack doesn't sell them. I currently run 285/35/19 and 325/30/19 rears in RE11's.

305/35/19 for the front
335/30/19 for the rear.

305/35/19 for the front

The only thing I could find is overall width.
305 is 12.32"
335 is 13.31"

Traction was iffy in the cold weather; but overall ride quality,rain,etc... the Invo's performed well on mine.
A 345/30/19 will go on your rear wheels & they make 285/35's for the front.

I still have 2 front's mounted on 10's & they're squared off/ as the 345's were a tad stretched on the 12's.

I am shopping for replacements for my RE11's when they come do which will be the first of next year. It's a struggle to find something better. I want the
same or preferably more grip with longevity like the RE11's. A little less will be fine.

So what max size should I goto on the rear if I am trying to keep my front at 245/40R19?

Should I go 295/30 on the rear. My tire shop said if I 305/30 on the rear and leave the front 245/40 then the car will want to seriously track straight. I don't really want to comprimise handling, so I was thinking of just going to a 295/30 on the rear.

That looks perfect, are you on coils or springs?
