    Trying to get find some more aggressive tires for the 19" HSE rims, leaning towards Hankook rw11 ipikes as we've had good results with those, what are you all doing for tires? Right nowvit's riding on a very road oriented tire, OK ish for now but don't trust them for winter and off road.

    Just use tire rack to check but you’re best selling them or repurposing and buying 18” wheels with almost endless choices in that size.

    Although Nokian doesn’t list on Tire rack and they have some great choices. Honestly though, 19” is so limiting that the aggressive tread choices ar just a joke. The 19” tires suck when they suck no matter what aggressive tread is on them so might as well stick to scent all around design tha fool yourself into thinking a 19” is much safer.

    My understanding is that I need to use V6 calipers and discs to switch to 18" tires?

    What, Why? You’re posting in the lr3 section so if you have an lr3, that’s why there are lr3 18” wheels on them.... it’s just factory standard. Smaller calipers are for 17” wheels

    If you go to tiresize.com they will list almost all tire options out there for any given size - with the notable exception of Nokian tires. You can then shop around for the best deal at all the various sites, or your local dealers.

    You still haven’t told us what vehicle you have or where you’re located. Can’t help you if you don’t provide necessary info

    If you have an LR3 and the 18s you found are from an LR3 (and not like, a D2) then they will fit.
