Help with tires

Ok I never bought rims before and the ones I got are 19"x8.5" ADR m-sports. I dont know what kind of tires I should get, the size, or where a good place to get them is. Can you guys help me because I know you all have some information for me. Thanks grin

if you have a 19 X 8.5" tire then you want to keep your width between 245 and 275 (although you can hedge on either side of this a bit).

if you drive a celica, then the lower profile the better..such as a 30 or 35 series sidewall profile.

look for something like this: 245/35/19 (for example)

www.tirerack.com should be able to help you find a brand and type of wheel that fits these specifics thumbsup

in the rear-easy.

in the front, it's better to use a wheel spacer because some users have said their 8.5" wide tires scrape the wheel wells when the steering wheel is at full tilt. of course, some people get around this by removing the front wheel wells altogether thumbsup

be careful how far your tires stick out--in most states it's illegal for you wheels to extend over an inch or so from you car.

many people with wide wheels incorporate fender flares or a widebody kit so that their tires are still tucked into their cars safely thumbsup

You don't need 19x8.5. Honestly. That's too big for most cars.
