    I dont think a 275/45/19 would fit. I think that would be a WAY tall tire...

    you want the 30s

    with the 30s you are at 25.5" overall diameter ...that is .16" off of stock overall diameter size...so your speedo will be almost spot on...however 30s are quite thin in the sidewalls compared to the 45s ...30s sidewall will be 3.25" thick compared to the 45s who is 4.87ish" so about 1.5" difference

    I thought 275's were for a 10" wide rim.

    275/30/19 is the plus 2 tire size for our cars. Your speedo will be within 1% which is totally acceptable.

    Too big at 104% (27.1), needs to be + or- 3% of oem size (25.7). Speedo will be off too much unless you can reprogram ECU. You will loose performance and economy with a larger heavier wheel not to mention putting more stress on the bearings and axels.
