Default noob here: biggest wheel/tire combo?

I'm looking at some 19x8.5s that were made for a Scion (same bolt pattern).

Know anyone running that wide up front and what offset is ideal?

if so, tire size?

Actually, I checked out Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels and they list a bunch of wheels for the PT in the 19" size.

The biggest they show is 19x8.5 F&R with +35mm offset, using a 235-35-19F and 245-35-19R (optional if you want to stagger the tire sizes).

So looks like I'm good!

Staggered tires is the way to go. These are retro cars and the bigger rear tire looks good. I have 225/40/18 front and 245/40/18 rear. Wish I did a 255/35/18 rear now
