Recently bought Niche wheels 19 x9.5 offset 35. Kept the stock PZeros, but found them to be rather stretched, Not too familiar on tire specs, so what would be a good size for good meat on the ground for these Niches? I'm going the squared route btw on my 15 GT. Thanks. BTW this is for my daily, no track.

That table looks off to me. I wonder what specific tire it was for?

Tires vary on what width works for what wheel sizes, there is no one single table.

Step 1: Pick a tire
Step 2: Consult that tire's manufacturer specs for wheel fitment.

Thanks. I did that when I bought the Niches on line. Site said the stock 255/40z9 would work. Just don't like the feel of them. I need something wider on the 9.5, just wondering what suggestions are out there.

Stock GTPP rear tires are 275/40R19 on a 9.5" wheel. I know that some members have used 285/35R19 on 9.5" wheels with no complaints. My PP wheels are now my winter set;I have 255/40R19 on all four wheels and the 255 is really stretched on the 9.5" wheel.

If I were you, I wouldn't use anything smaller than a 275. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. That's what I was looking for, numbers.

No worries. For reference, my summer set is now 19x10 et35 front 285/35R19 and My rears are 19x11 et50 325/30R19. Fitment is close to flush and no rubbing anywhere. Good luck with the search for the right tire size.

It's in the ballpark, but in my Mustnag tires worksheet, all the 285's I was looking at said they would work on a 9.5" wheel. And those are the somewhat conservative manufacturers recommendations. 275 probably gives the widest selection if you aren't after max grip.
