Plus size 19” tires

Recommended Posts

Just got a 2013 obsidian fwd w 19” wheels for the wife.
she complained that somehow it just doesn’t handle as well as her 2011 g37 convertible.
where I bought it was a huge used car sales in Dallas.
they had range rovers, jags and bimmers, oh my!
anyway I like the car but the 235/55/19 tires do seem a little narrow.
i was looking at plus size on replacement and was wondering what guys have used.
searched but didn’t quite see it.
i believe 255/50/19 should not be a problem although just giving me marginally extra width.
i would like to go with 285/45/19s but I think the stock 19” wheel width of 7.5” would be too narrow and the 1.5 - 2” increase in width may cause some rubbing on the front.
dont want to run two different size.
suggestions or has anybody upsized?
also what brand did you go with.
wanted something economical 
thanks.
