    Hi guys,

    Do anyone know if it is possible to mount/stretch a 215/35/19 tire on a 19x9,5 wheel (BBS Le mans)?

    i believe 225 is the slimmest recommended width for this rim size, 215 might not seal properly.. would have to try it though as different brands can vary in shape etc

    im running 215/35/19 on 9j its a nice sensible strech which hasnt compromised handling to much, but on a 9.5j you'd be asking alot id go 225/35 your still get a nice strech on that if this is what your after???

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for your answers.

    The problem is, that i have brand new 215/9,5/19 tires.
    So i just needed to know if that tires would fit the rims. Or if i need to buy new tires, but it seems that i have to buy new tires :-/
    My existing tires is Hankook ventus S1, and i don't know how well they would stretch.

    5mm spacers up front will cure your problem. The tyres catch the inside of the inner arch on full lock when you are moving accross uneven surfaces like reversing off a drive.
