19x8.5 front & 19x10 rears

Recommended Posts

So I just put on some 19" wheels on my TC...  I have 225/40/19 tires on them...  The back tires have a small nice stretch on them but the fronts look a bit meaty....  I still need to put air ride on my TC but the wheels help get me motivated to do more work on it...  The et/offset is +32 front and +38 rears...  The rims were off a Jaguar...  I would have gone with a 35series front tire but Oahu's roads are pretty bad with potholes and what not....  I've messed up a few sets of rims by hitting them with 35 series tires....  This van is daily driven and I rather worry about my gf curbing them than pothole damage....

We get it, we get it.

Beautiful wheels, btw.

I scored them for $300...  The bolt pattern played in my favor, because no one wanted to buy them....  I actually don't need to dodge the potholes and I'm surprised the ride is very smooth...  I made it so it's reliable for my gf to drive and my 2yo not to become a bobble head....

There are plenty of aftermarket wheels available. Most FWD Ford, Volvo ja Jaguar wheels fit.

I don't recall offhand what offset my 19" rims are, but I've got 245's all around with no stretch and zero poke. Fitment looks factory to be honest. The nice thing is I'll have zero rub when I lower it. Check the rims thread I posted my specs there.

These are the tires I used:

Load index is 99. 

1653 lbs @ 51psi

For my SWB XLT Wagon the curb weight is 3,630 lbs + max payload of 1,620 lbs = 5,250 lbs/4 = 1,313 lbs which leaves me 340 lbs of margin on each tire if I was fully loaded.

Those wheels look great Nate! A little more tire stretch then I prefer, but that's all personal taste.

 

I'm putting a set of 19 x 8.5 wheels on my 2016 TC as well shortly. I'll share some pics when it's done. I'll be doing either 235/35R19 or 245/35R19 tires on them.

DapperDan- Your TC looks beautiful with those black wheels and the lowering springs installed as well. I guess I'll be the 3rd guy running a 19" wheel on the 2nd gen TC around these parts as not many seem to go with anything 18"+.

 

Here is the wheel style I chose:
