Sidewall increase

Hi, I'm looking to purchase some winter tires for my 13 Gen. My question is if I upped the sidewall from the stock 225 40 19/245 40 19 to 225 45 19/245 45 19, would it make the TCS go crazy ?

Thanks

The difference in your new setup is a -2.56% from front to rear. Thats under + or - 3 % so you will be fine.

Here we go again !

Be careful on front width. I was only able to go 235 45 19 all around because the front tire clearance isnt as great. The front height was nearly on the fender liner up top and barely cleared front shocks

Are you lowered? I'm on bilstein b8 + HR springs stock 19s. I feel like a 45 sidewall would work. And I do have 20mm front 25mm rear spacers. If it rubs, I can just take off the spacers.

Spacers might actually help. Im stock everything. The rubbing would only occur turning in, the taller tire doesn't have much space there. Pushing it out (via spacer) pushes it further away from the inner structure and suspension of the car which would be good. No clue how a lowered car would be affected on compression and rebound though over big bumps or pot holes.

Might give it a shot as I'm looking for winter tires but there isnt much to choose from with the stock specs. I figured upping the sidewall might not be a problem and could probably be beneficial in winter driving. It's also about half a inch taller with 45 profile

I went with all season snow rated tires because I drive on them year round. We only get light snow maybe 4 to 8 inches every few weeks January-March. Nokian and Vredstein make some good ones. Otherwise you have to get full winter tires and they cost the same, nearly 200 per tire with alignment

Yeah was looking at the Pirelli Sotozero 3's with factory specs. Wanted blizzaks but it looks like they discontinued them in 245 40 19. But they are available in a 225/45r19 245/45r19. Had blizzaks on the last couple of years and they were amazing in winter driving especially deep snow. The winters in Chicago are just so unpredictable. Just want the best winter set money can buy

Gaijinn is correct. Staying near 2.5% is probably safe. Also the new tire sizes preserve the front-to-rear size ratio which means your TCS (which compares front-to-rear speed ratios) will function normally. Where you could possibly experience minor problems is the ABS function.

Still driving a 350z... While looking seriously at GenCoupe
