Default Need help with tires.

Hey Guys... My best friend has a 03 996 Turbo that we are almost done working on after getting it used it needed a lot of work. So no it has the wheels powder coated and full suspension underneath it he needs some tires. Sadly he now has a budget so replacing the worn out Michelins is out of the question. It has 19's all around and the sizes on it were 235/35/R19 and 315/25/R19 It has a GT style body kit on it and is a tad wider from the pots I have looked at comparing to stock. I know there is Michelins and Toyo T1's available in those sizes and the Toyo isn't an option for me. I know there has to be some guys who have experimented with different sizes.. Any thoughts would be great help. Here is a pick of the car when it was on H&R lowering springs it now has H&R club sport coil overs and Camber plates.

To best recommend sizes you must have the wheel width.

Tire manufacturers give an approved wheel width for each tire model and size, usually.

If the wheels are multipiece he should make sure the powder coater masked the sealing surfaces. And also the lug seat surfaces if they are multi- or one-piece. Paint on those areas makes it slippery.

Your friend picked a great color!

Totally off topic question...

What are the headlights tinted with? It looks like the lightest Lamin-x tint. Can your friend confirm?
