Anyone running 305/30-19 tires?

If so, what wheel sizes front and rear?

Is your car lowered, and if so with what set up?

Trying to see if the Z/28 set-up will work on the SS 1LE for my track tires and wheels. I'm thinking about running Toyo R888 305/30-19 on 19 x 11 front and 19 x 11.5 rear.

This set up would only be used to drive to/from the track, and at the track. I hope I won't need the Z/28 fender flares to do this. I've got the lower half of the car clear-bra'd to protect against rock chips already.

Pros and cons?

Thanks

Forgeline has done the most work to get the proper offsets for a 10.5" or 11" on the front and rear. here's a thread with tons of pictures of a member that is running 19x11's with 315/30/19's all around. Planning on running something similar.

Forgeline keeps the offsets secret, but I did some calculating on my own, concluding that you would need 25 offset or lower (with 10.5" wheels) to fit 305's in the front, and those will stick out a little. This is untested, so i am not positive. not sure if it would work with oem struts.. camber plates will help. This is backed up by the fact that a few members are running 285's on 10.5 +35. pushing those out another 10mm should give clearance for 305's

If you dont wanna or then just give Steve Schardt a call and buy a set of forgelines he has all the info ready to go.

Yes but he's running coilovers, some of which have additional clearance. Not sure if 315s will fit unless you spring for coilovers.

I did call Forgeline and the gentleman that I spoke with wasn't sure even if 19x10.5s with 305/30-19s would clear the stock suspension, let alone 19x11s. Pete from Pedders is looking into it, I'll report back when I hear anything.
