Default Stretched Tire opinion

Got a set of TE37s and need to put tires on them. I just got these and never put them on my car.

Spec:

Front 2 -
19 x 8.5" , +22 et

Rear 2 -
19 x 9.5" , +34 et


Now, I've been looking thru the wheel thread and came up with this.

For the fronts, I was thinking about putting 215/35/19 on
For the rear, I was thinking about 245/35/19

I want to hit the rears with a spacer and sit a little more flush but I guess I'm asking for opinions from the "fitment" guru's out there. Is this a good setup or should I think about another size??

Thanks in advanced for the help!

The fronts will have a little bit of a stretch, but I'd recommend going 235/35 on your rears... I'm running a 245/35 right now on a 19x10 and it's just a little bit of a stretch... that way your front and back will look the same.

depends on how low you are. you could do 235/35 265/30 or 225/35 245/35 for a little stretch

why no spacers in the rear? Do you think it will sit better that way or something?

^^^ because if you run spacers in the rear, you won't be able to run 255/35-19 in the rear.

mind you, your tire size depends on your ride height.

stick with 215/35/19 up front.
the rear like projectdna said use 255 you can even run 265 since your wheels are 9.5 +34. but remember the the front gonna stretch and the rear wont.. dont know if you gonna like the look of that.

Im running 215/36/19 on my 19x8.5 +20 right now and theyre rubbing (im on coils)

215 and 245. go narrow since it's a bit aggressive
