Yes it will fit. 225/30/20 all around may be a good fit.

What kind of sizes were you looking at?

Thanks for the reply.

I like the low profile look of a 30, but the site I was shopping on wouldn't give a size recommendation for the tire on a 20in wheel on my car so I wasn't sure what width would work.

Do you have any preferences for tire brand? It's been years since I bought wheels so I'm not up to date. The last set I got were kumhos and they were fine.

My complete lack of knowledge is perfectly balanced out by my complete lack of giving a shit.

Cool. I was just looking at a set of Falken FK and they are well reviewed on that site so I'll go with that. Thanks for the info, great help. +rep

I know its not recommended to do Staggered fitament on AWD, but at the same time I know it can be done as long as the rolling diameters are the same. Is this statement correct?

With that being said... Will this set up fit without fender modification:
19x8.5 +40 -235-35-19
19x10.0 +45 -265-30-19

I've tried using the tire calcultor but I have NO idea what I'm looking for. And are we inputting the stock size and comparing it to the Aftermarket tire sizes, or is it the Aftermarket Front Tire size vs Aftermarket Rear Tire size?

I have an IS250 AWD with LEXUS OEM 18x8 wheels. I have BFGoodrich 225/40/18 and they are noisy with 25k miles on them. I was wondering if I can install 235/40/18 on these wheels. What are the disadvantages of going with a wider tire? I know it will increase the tire side reveal but will it make a big difference in handling? My driving style is moderate to aggressive. Thanks in advance.

more than the width, you should look into getting a tire that has better compound

They will fit, but they are thinner than your OEM wheels... Is that what you want?

my tire guy said that my current tires will fit, and i dont mind too much because this is mainly a daily driver. im picking the motegi sp5 18"x7.5" on a 5x114.3 bolt pattern for 200 bucks for all 4 and getting em mounted and balanced for 40 bucks.

plus what are the advantages if an to this size, or disadvantages for this size?

So you are using stock tires on this new wheel? Red flag.

Motegi's? Even bigger red flag.

Why would you want to downgrade your wheels?

I'm having trouble understanding what you mean by stock tires? What size wheels do you have on right now?

Motegi's are cheap quality wheels. It's like buying a cheap generic brand (which isn't bad depending on what you're buying, but in this case very important)

Okay, so the front tires (225/40) will fit fine.. but the 255/40 will be really awkward.
