Hi All,

I have nice 19” wheels for my 79 928 the rear tire size that I’m going with is 285 45 19 and I’m confused with what size should I go for the front 255 50 19 matches up nicely with the 285 but I feel that it will look weird what do you think? 225 would probably be the best but then it would need to be like 60 so the car is even. Does it matter if back of the car is higher than the front ? Need your help I’m so lost and can’t decide. I have a good deal on the 255 and 285 mentioned on top but I don’t want to get it if it will look funny. 285 is the max that I can fit in the back without spacers on the rims that I have.

What is the J designation on your rims i.e. 8J x 19.
This will determine tire width and ratio i.e.245 X 40 X19
Try and keep the circumference same as original 225 X 50 X 15/16
