Possible tyres sizes for 19" 159 and Brera wheels


I know that the standard size for these tyres is 235/40/19, but wondered if anyone on here as actually fitted other sizes, specifically, (in order of closest fit)

245/40/19 (1.18% difference, ride height +4mm)
225/45/19 (2.12% difference, ride height +7.25mm)
245/35/19 (2.52% difference, ride height -8.25mm)
235/35/19 (3.63% difference, ride height -11.75mm)

I can't imagine anyone has gone 'further' away from this on the 19" rim, but please let me know if you have!

I'm asking because it seems that 235/40/19 is by far and away the least common size of those listed above, and hence the prices are significantly higher for this size.



Yes, he's a Bear, he's with me and he's drinking San Miguel.

interesting. I will need new fronts in a few weeks (just in time for xmas ) so could do with finding an alternative to the uber pricey standard fit P Zero's
