Anyone running 305/35r19 on rear lowered on springs? Not sure if it’s too tall of a tire.

It's almost an inch taller than a stock tire. You'll want a 305/30/19.
I disagree, 30 profile looks to thin and square compared to the fronts unless you run a 275/30 on the front. 265/35 and 305/35 would have been what I run if I would have went with 305. To each their own, but 305/35 is confirmed to fit with lowering springs.

The sidewall on a 275/35 and a 305/30 are just about the same thickness.
Sidewall height is a percentage of the width, not a height in mm or inches.

See the difference in diameter? A 305/35 is way taller than a 275/35. If you're lowered you have a bigger probability of rubbing and you're changing the gearing of the car slightly. Slowing acceleration and throwing off your speedo. The 305/30 is off too but by a much smaller margin.

I’ve worked with multiple 3 piece wheel companies and have sold a lot of wheels and seen a lot of tires mounted, well aware of the differences. However, I would never run a tire that is shorter on the rear than the front. It’s a pet peeve of mine and it’s the first thing I notice on a car with a 35 up front and 30 on the rear. Front looks bubbly and rear is square. With anything over 255/35 with most brands, the front is taller than 305/30. Now, I do agree that 305/35 is taller than what I would see ideal, but I still think it’s a better option than a 30 series, especially for a street car that may see rough roads.

@EastCoastSupra is running nitto nt05 305/35 on the rear and has confirmed no rubbing.

I personally see no reason for me to run a 305 on the rear of this car and opted for 265/35 and 295/35 and think this is the ideal fit. (On Te37)

P.S. the speedo in this car is already thrown off mine is off by a few mph on stock sizing.

What lug nuts are people using? Open or closed? Black or titanium? Not sure what to do on a bronze wheel.

Didn't realize stock lugs would fit on an aftermarket wheel. Don't they typically seat differently? With stock being flat and aftermarket being conical?
In our case the OEM bolts are conical. Be advised with some wheels you may need longer or shorter bolts, my experience doesn’t go further than the Te37.

Ah, great info. I didn't realize that. I have wheels on the way, so that might be a great short-term solution while I decide what I want!

If you want something fancy, the best lug I have ever used is project kics. You can buy a stud conversion kit for our cars. I’ve heard a few people had really good luck with them, but I’m personally going to stick with the bolts until someone posts a long term review on them.

I have seen wheels changed and the OEM bolt was too long for the new wheel and it caused some major damage inside the hub. So definitely be sure to check into that before taking my advice and rolling with the stock ones lol
