    Do I need wheel spacers in Cincinnati?

    I am thinking of running this set up on my 2012 CTS V (6 M):

    Hankook Ventus 12 Evo: 275/40/19 and 305/30/19.

    I have decided to go with this company as opposed to the Michelin Super Sports because if I hate the setup, I am only out half the money.

    Someone suggested I will probably need spacers, probably 15 mm.

    I would love any advice about the spacers and where I could purchase them in Cincinnati.

    Thanks so much,

    Jim

    Do you mean 275/35 19? That front is taller than stock and doesn't match the rear...

    Thanks for getting back to me,thebigjimsho,

    if I ran the 275/35/19 would it be okay with the 305/30/19?

    Much appreciated.

    Jim

    Yep, that would be properly matched. Those tires will be only slightly shorter than stock but that works fine. Only issue is the speedometer might be a hair fast...

    Much appreciated again,

    if the speedometer is a hair fast, good and bad. Good because I think I will be going faster at the driving schools. Bad is I assume my mileage will be increased as a result? I lease this car.

    Thanks again,

    Jim

    Good point. It won't be a lot, but it will be something. Not sure how many miles you'd lose...

    Mr. thebigjimsho,

    since we are having a dialogue and I have no friends, can I come over for Easter lunch or dinner? I am not so presumptious that I would expect to stay for both. I will bring the suger covered peeps that my aunt who raised me bought me year. I will bring both pink and yellow.

    By the way do you have any thoughts on whether I will need spacers?

    Thanks and appreciated,

    Jim
