2014 alternative tire size
I want to buy new summer tires and want them to be designed for roads only, without M+S attribute.
Unfortunately my area for 245/55 R19 sire does not give much choice and all of them are M+S.
I want something like Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV or Continental Premium Contact 6
However 255/55 R19 give a lot of tires and they are even cheaper.
I know that it will increase wheel size (1cm, 29.6" vs 30") and ground clearance slightly (0.5cm), real speed will be about 1% more than displayed.
But I assume it should be fine.
The question is will it fit to standard rims?
I googled and found two sizes for 14 MDX:
19x8.5 (R j) 50 ET and 19x8J 50 ET. Not sure which one is right and installed, cannot see the markings
I hope they are 19x8.5 and will not look like trapezoid.
What do you think about it and what tire size do you use?
