    245 50 19 is as close as you can get in comparison to stock.
    I've seen cx5s with 235 55 19 and 235 50 19 as well. Former is a bit higher, while 235 50 car sits a bit lower but looks very nice. even with 235 50 19 the cx5 looked much nicer than 225 55 19. Which look too thin especially with the black rims. Its even funny looking to me

    Thanks for your input. The 235x50 will have a - 3mm OD difference and the 245x50 7mm difference. They say it must be +-9mm OD difference. Others have said there is the old school methods were 1.5% and - 2% and the new specs it must be +3% or -3% difference.

    Just curious if you had considered 245/40R20? I'm debating between 245/45R20 vs 245/40R20 at the moment. Appreciate your feedback.

    With 45, you will have more tire(more meat). In my case, I can use as much as I can. It is really rough.

    My wheels are 20X9 and I think ET 45. I'm currently running 235/45r20 tires. I've already scraped my wheels a bit so I want wider tires I do plan on going with 255/40r20 tires once these are done. I want a bit more beefy tires lol

    To late, I have done it a few times. I'm not driving as a grandpa. I'm taking curves as fast as I can. Sometimes, I take them to tight and then....
    Eventually, I will fix those.
    These are cheap wheels. I have got them on sale, for $155 each from nlmotoring.
