taller tire size on my 645

anyone have thoughts on why not to put 275/40/19 and 245/45/19 on the 6455 instead of factory 275/35/19 and 245/40/19?

will they work? any issues?

I'm sure you'd loose some cornering and gain softer ride... maybe....

You do know it will affect your speedometer don't you?

But would it be a really noticeable difference ? What about 275/40 and 245/40 ....does the rear always have to be shorter in height ?

The odo and speedo will run slower 4%. You might need to realign your suspension. Camber is related to vehicle height, and by extension, tire height.

not sure i understand the reply from Joepipe...
but if the odo/speedo will be affected, doesn't sound like it's wise to do... just to give you more info, i'm looking for tires and found the "taller" set for $250 on craigslist. Yeah, 4 Eagle F1 all season tires with 1000 miles for $250... thought it was worth looking into...

so, EnterTheDragon, does 4% slower mean that my car will show less miles then i actually put on my vehicle?

Not shorter or taller, the same.

My tire shop accidentally ordered 45 series front tires for me and I had to drive on them for a night while they got the correct ones in the next day. No rubbing, but it looked like hell. 4X4 645. Poop.

Do these fit?

So a local on Craigs has 745 tires (same size as the post above) at 90% tread, for sale dirt cheep. Has anyone tried putting 745 tires on a 6 series and what was the result?

They will fit, but it looks odd (it will look like you have SUV tires on your 650) and will throw off the speedometer a bit - but other than that it should be ok. The alignment will be slightly off as well (camber) but not enough to make a huge difference.
