Help with tire size / brand 1997 Infiniti Q45

Postby samsooka » Sat Aug 18, 2018 2:10 am

Hey guys,

I was hoping someone here can help me out and give some guidance as to what tires I should run on my Wheels. I recently just got Weds Kranse Cerebus 19x10 +15 and 19x11 +15. I’ll be mounting these on a Y33. Looking for maybe a solid to full stretch and some comfort. Any recommendations or guidance will be greatly appreciated!!

That is some big meat, you probably going to need some spacers I would assume.

So for me anything but Bridgestone or Michelin is a compromise. I have Michelin Sport YR's on my Q45 on 19x9.5 wheels (running a small spacer due to my coilovers) and they are great. They are a litte more noisy than the Bridgestons Z71's that I run on my old 300ZX that I also like alot.

Check out Tirerack, I would consider callling Tirerack and tell them what your running, their sales guys know what they are doing.

Hey,

Thanks for the reply! I really appreciate it and I’ll definitely give them a call. Sorry I’m such a newb when it comes to tires nd stretching being it’s my first time. Appreciate you taking the time out to reply!

I am not a fan of that but given the size of those rims that might be your only option. I have scene more than once a car on the freeway pulled over with a blowout on stretched tires. Make sure whatever you get has load rating of XL over 100 rating. The Michelins I have are 104XL load rating, I had some bridgestones before these and blew one out on an explansion joint.

Is the car lowered at all? Camber? Stretch and comfort don't exist.

sorry I never replied to this. The car is lowered by 1.5" with BC Coilovers. The tires are not stretched on this, running 40 series. This is a heavy car so anything lower profile makes the ride very harsh. I ran the Bridgestones in 35's and that was too low profile.
