What is the widest tire you can put on the OEM 19" wheel without any modification? I thought I read somewhere that D3 was doing 285s...

I had 285/30/19 no problem.

Thats actually 2" smaller... 275/40/19 is 27.7" tall. 285/30/19 is 25.7" tall....

Sorry I meant 35 not 30. I had 285/35/19. The 285 is the width not the height.

I am sure you can go wider then that. 285 looked pretty good from the back.

BF Goodrich GForce KDW2
255/45/18-front
295/35/19-back

That's what I'm running, and they are great! I wish I wouldve gone with a 305

305 on a 9.5 wheel??
I thought stretching tires was the thing to do now?
