Wheels and Tires
Rocklin, 

I recently purchased some Champion RG-5s for my car and had my old tires mounted on them.  The new wheels are 19x8.5 in front and 19x11.5 in back.  I have started to do some autocrossing and would like to put some stickier maybe wider tires all around.  I know the back wheels and fender clearance will let me go to a 305-30-19 tire from my old 295-30-19.  I don't know if I can or want to go any wider there.  Up front I am currently running 235-35-19 tires (Michelin Pilot Super Sports).  I'm wondering how wide I can go there without having rubbing problems on my wheel wells when turning shapely?  Also, I'm thinking of going to Bridgestone RE-11s for tires.  What are your thoughts.

Thanks

Bill
