Tyre upgrade

Right then gents,
Got a set of D3 19” Alloys , was going to put 255 55 19 tyres on them.
Question is, can I put wider tyres on the alloys, ie: 275 55 19

Thanks in advance

Why? The OE 255-55-19 (or a size with the same rolling radius) is the one that the suspension etc. was developed and optimised around. There's a good choice of tyres in that size and you'll not have to bother to inform your insurers that you've made a modification.

Just my thoughts. Thumbs Up

I agree,why, I have 275 45 21 and they look good, they where fitted by the previous owner, I much prefer standard size 19s. Worst problem is the mud flaps are not wide enough.

It will when others won't,
It goes where others don't.
