NEW 2013 GT Convertible Tire size question?

Hello Everyone!!!

I just bought myself a 2013 GT Convertible Premium...I want to go Staggered with the tires but am wondering what sizes I can fit on it without needing spacers..

Right now I have the stock 18x8in wheels with P235/50R18 tires.

I was looking into getting this setup on

(2) 19x8.5 Black AMR Wheels
(2) 19x10 Black AMR Wheels
(2) Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40-19
(2) Mickey Thompson Street Comp 285/35-19

I want 19" vs. the 18" I have now.

Just so everyone knows the Stock setup has all-season tires and will be my winter setup and the Staggered setup will only be for the summer.

Thanks for any and every advice and/or opinion you guys give :):):)

Thanks for the advice everyone!!

And AMAlexLazarus i'll definitely consider the Nitto's, price isn't an issue I just heard from others that MT's were good for the money, but you have way more experience then them lol..

My car is black so i'm looking for a nice mean look with these black wheels and Staggered tire setup...I will post a picture once I put them on!
Are you going mainly for looks, or do you think you might want to take the car on a road course?

For a track with corners, you want wider wheels and tires in the front as well as the back; and 18" wheels are generally the best choice due to weight and tire price and availability. 18x10 wheels should clear on the front as long as the offset is right.

If you just want the look and/or will go to drag strip only then staggered is good.

I am going mainly for looks. If I do bring it to a track it won't be for anything serious just to have fun. So Staggered it is!
Hey Ice -

Anytime! I'm always around to help and I don't get points nor am I commission based here (Put simply we don't push sales) Being in the position I'm in I wont recommend a tire that's going to put you and the vehicle a lane to the left or right running the car through the gears. It's a great car and I have my issues with the suspension but I wont push a tire that I've driven on extensively and left me feeling concerned! Let me know if there's absolutely anything else I can help out with and I'll keep an eye out for your thread!

Happy Modding!


Did I mention that I love black on black as well?

Thank you! This is a little bit off from the topic of this thread but I wanted to BAMA tune my car and the only reason why I want is so I do not void the warranty. My question is, should I tune it anyway? I want the most performance out of my car but I do have the 5 Year warrnty on it and don't want to lose out on it.
