NicSTS,

What size rims are on your STS now? What's the name/brand of rims?

I like the look of your car!

The STS-V came with 275/40ZR-19 in the rear. Some have installed 295/35-19 on the stock wheels that are 19X10.5 The front wheels are 18X9.5 with 255/45ZR-18. I would think if you have correct offset wheels and the same overall diameter between the front and rear you can run up to 295mm rear tires.
You can go to this link to experiment.

I was just saying how I liked your rims and wanted to know the size/style. Didn't have anything to do with your original question...

Sorry...
