225 Tyre on a 9J Rim?

Post by sunnydays » Fri Jul 05, 2019 2:22 pm

Hey,

Is there any problem in running a 225 / 30 / R19 tyre on a 9J rim.
Googling around, charts reccomend 235+, how ever I can also see many people running these sizes fine.

It would be
225/35/R19 on a 9J
255/30/R19 on a 10J

Is this okay to do? Or should I sell the tyres and get new ones?

Thanks!

That's a bit too much stretch. Your wheel will protrude quite a bit.
245 is the minimum I would go for.

Not an option, 245 will rub, the wheel is already wider than stock, and on lowering springs.
