:lmfao: That's what I thought. I think it will work. There shouldn't be a noticeable difference in height.

A number of Z's here run with 275/30/19 .. just due to tire options.

275/30 are smaller -- creating larger wheel well openings .. and simply not good visually IMHO.

I know some people do it, but IMO is not worth it. According to a tire/wheel calculator I use, the 275/30/19 is .3" smaller than the 245/35/19 front. Not a good look with the reverse stagger and you might have problems with VDC (if applicable) and your speedometer will be off. You will have approximately .5" more wheel gap, too.

I'd stick with the 35 Josh. The 30 would be much more prone to wheel damage from potholes and such.

How much cheaper is a 30 profile than a 35?

I have the SO-3's on my rear tires. They're not even broken in yet though, so I can't really give a review. The tread looks great for the rain though.
