    Same size tires front and rear on GT

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I just purchased a Stinger GT with the staggered tire sizes. The rear wheels are slightly wider (half an inch). I was wondering if there would be any problem replacing the tires with the same size tires when they need replacing. I was thinking of going 225 at all four corners. My winter tires are 225 all around on winter wheels and it seems totally fine.

    Thanks in advance.

    Technically you could go 225 all around but you may not like how stretched its going to look in the rear.

    Thanks for the reply. By stretched do you mean the tire stretched on the wheel?

    Also I noticed I started this in the wrong section....newbie mistake.

    To me, 225-mm tires (on all 4 corners) seem quite narrow for a 2-ton car. I would consider 255 or wider with properly-sized wheels to match.

    Yes. I agree with @POS VETT and go a bit wider

    I wouldn't go with 225 on the rears, that's so small. Honestly tires are one of the most important safety item on the car, I would stick with the recommend tire size or find another set of used 19x8 OEM wheels for the rears. Then you can have the same size all around.
