    Hey everyone so I just recently got some 19x9.5 GT PP rims for my 19 ecoboost premium and was just wondering what tires you think would be the best to put on them?
    I heard good things about PS4s?

    I’m in no rush to mount them and open to all suggestions, I have no idea where to even begin, but have read that 255/40/ZR19 for the front two and 275/40/ZR19 for the backs would work?
    Cheers :beer:

    If you got someone's full take off set, fronts are 19x9 and rears are 19x9.5, stock tires are 255 then 275.

    The 19x9.5s will be 0.5" wider than the 19x9s. You definitely want to make sure you get them on the right end of the car.

    If all four are 19x9.5 can I still use them or do 9.5’s not fit on the front? I got sold a set for really cheap but they’re all 19x9.5

    Thank you so much do r all the help.

    The offset might not work for the front, somebody else might be more knowledgeable on that.

    Tires will fit all around, but I do think you need a spacer on front. Can't recall right now if something small like a 5mm will work or not.

    Awesome thanks for the help, gonna take the car in Monday and see what I can do
    Great thanks for the info. I read that if I use spacers I have to check/retighten them every 5k miles or so, is that true?

    should I just try to get 2 19x9’s for the front instead of going 19x9.5 all around?

    It's recommended to retighten them, most people probably don't. Slip ons just slip between the rotor and the wheel so there's nothing to tighten on those.

    I like square better so you can at least rotate front to back and help extend the life a bit that way.

    It’s no problem for me to be having to retighten (can something go wrong if you don’t re tighten) every so often so long as it all fits nicely and there’s no rubbing and of course looks good. These are my first nice set of wheels that aren’t oem (well at least not oem on my eco) and I’m so stoked to have them done this coming week, thank you so much again for all the info you are awesome. Also do you think I should run PS4s on them or is it just a waste like my friend said? Or maybe just any decent 275/40/R19 tires all around? Looking for some tires that have a little more grip during the rain compared to my stock tires that I have on now since I’m in Florida and just about every afternoon it’s been raining.

    Sounding like a broken jukebox but thanks again everyone! :beer:
    EDIT: i suk at spelang

    I'm sure you'll appreciate the difference from them, but are they worth the additional cost? Tires like the Indy 500s get great reviews on here for performance per dollar so I would consider something like those.

    I haven't found my NT555 G2s to be particularly great in any fashion, but I did get them cheaper than Indy 500s at the time because of a sale.

    edit » found an old thread that confirmed with a 5mm spacer the rear wheels should fit on the front.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with a value tire like the Firestone. It has gotten good ratings and reviews. Maybe it's just me but I never, ever skimp on tires. My cars a cruiser, will never see a track but...........Let's look at it another way;

    275/40/R19 - Tirerack.com
    Michelin Pilot Sport 4S $325.00ea $1300.00 set of 4
    Bridgestone POTENZA S-04 POLE POSITION $265.00ea $1060.00 set of 4
    Difference $240.00 or $0.66 a day
    Michelin Pilot Sport 4S $325.00ea $1300.00 set of 4
    Firestone FIREHAWK INDY 500 $200.00ea $800.00 set of 4
    Difference $500.00 or $1.37 a day

    Yes, big, big difference between the Michelin and Firestone up front. Less so with the Bridgestone. When you look at day to day for only one year it's less than a cup of Starbuck's coffee. Shouldn't your tires be as important as your wheels?
