Looking for help.

Did a quick search and got some good info. Ordering beyern rapp 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 offset 40 front and 45 rear. Also going to drop 3/4 ". Now I hear people saying some tires run wide and some narrow. I was wondering what size tires I can go with and what you guys recommend. I will cut rears and I believe the fronts are already rolled,but not sure. Thanks for any help

So I'm guessing after searching that 245/35 and 275/30 will work? Or 275/35?

235/35 and 265/30. You can fit a 275 out back if you do enough cutting/rolling. My 235 fronts rub the front fender under hard cornering until I cambered them in.

275/30 should work, depending on the tire.

I just got my Rapps today with BFG KDW NT's.....245/40 and 275/35.I haven't test fit them yet,but the tires look pretty big in person.

I was going to swap to .5 drop springs,but think I'll probably have to keep my current springs which are 0 drop HD King springs.Hoping to get my fenders rolled soon.

I can't see going with a tire that runs smaller because I want better traction with the looks of the new wheels.
