275 front and 315 rears but you need wider wheels.
That is the most rubber you can fit under a 5th gen.
For brands try continental, Michelin or pirelli.

Well I think "most" is a little vague. I mean if ou widened the stock wheels and didn't care if they stuck out past the fender.....

But yea, I would go wider wheels and possibly a street/DR trend pattern.

Do you actually have any useful information..
Right...Past your fender then your suspension compresses and takes your fender and quarter panel out? Plus it looks like shit.

Just finished a s/c install. I upgraded to continental extreme contact dws. I went 275/40/20 NS 315/35/20 on after market wheels. No issues with the continentals hooking up.

I'm sorry if you thought my post was an attack to you, but I can assure you it was not. All I was trying to say is that you can alter your suspension set up (if that's needed) and run wider tires. If you make sure the offsets are correct and there is no rubbing it should work.

Yes it looks bad to have the tire sticking out past the fender, I never said that wasn't the case. Just that it is possible to go wider.
