im basing my calcs on the stock sizing.

stock is250awd is 225/45/17

based on this sizing 225/45/17 = to going at 65km/h,

225/45/17 = 65km/h
225/40/19 = 67.92km/h
235/35/19 = 66.33km/h
245/30/19 = 64.53km/h

so if u dont mind, the 225/40/19 will be slightly oversized. its not that big of a difference though.

volco = 1010tires, well their online division.
tiretrends = online canadian store, they are located out in pitt meadows

but for cheapest price, tirerack. 225/40/19 size that u want is, $242.00 USD. shipping is like what, $20, then exchange is 1.2 lets say, duty, gst is 12%. which means u are looking at around $390 CAD each.

I'd prefer all seasons over summer tires cause I know come winter time I'll be too lazy to swap the stocks back.

I'm not lowered yet, but I think I might have to cause I'll look like a truck with 19's on haha..

honestly, i dont understand the deal with tires at all LOL..

when you say oversized, and those calculations, does that mean ill be running faster than i actually am?

after a lot of searching and stuff, i thought as long as all 4 tires are the same size, it should work out alright?

maybe i read wrong..

sorrgwa is talking about how your speedo will not read correctly if your tires are oversized (or undersized). which is why it's important when you get plus sized wheels and tires, that you try to retain the same aspect ratio as the oem wheel package.

use this calculator:
http://www.wheelsmaster.com/rt_specs.jsp

you want the new wheel/tire combo to be as close to stock as possible (around 2% variance) when you look at "speedometer" under the new wheel package column. the other comments provided should also be taken into consideration.
