Hello CRV family I currently purchased a 2011 CRV EX-L and looking to put 19 inch rims. Reccomended tire size is 245/50/19 but I feel that might be a little to big I want a nice clean look. Please advise the vehicle is on stock suspension I don't plan on lowering the vehicle as winter is coming and New York streets get a little tuff. Just want to know what the current members run on there 19s.

Thanks

The 245/50/19 is almost an exact match to the OE sized tire that came on your CRV, the difference being you will see 1" less side wall all around. The ride may be a little firmer depending on the tire and handling will be better. They will fill the wheel wells the same.

Nice! Love those accord hfp wheels. I'm also trying to upgrade mine to either a set of 18" wheels that look like civic si wheels or going with 18" accord sports and I'm having the same issue on what size tires to run. I'm trying I fill the wheel well without messing with the suspension. Does anyone have any recommendations for 2nd gens with 18" wheels?

I like the color of the wheel on the right but I don't think the sharp lines of it flow well with the curves of the 3rd gen CRV.

i’d be more concerned about going wider to 245 from the stock 225 in case it rubbed when turning. Myself i would go 225/55 19. it will fill your wheel well nicer, but only be a tad bigger and much less bumpier ride. Your speedo won’t be affected.

Just a little worried the tires may look to big and take away from the wheel

I would worry about the suspension going with 45 series. You will feel every bump and that will wear your suspension prematurely. As you can see from my garage, I went to a much bigger tire, but kept the same size 17 rim. Still fits in the wheel well without rubbing and a smoooooooth ride

hello people; I like the rims you chose. What tire did you go with? Keep posting on your views of your combo. What color are they?
On my 86 Buick I went with a 16x8 rim with a BF Goodrich tire. 245-50-16. I did notice a ruffer ride but I knew that was going to happen and I'm thinking of maybe 17" rim in the future.
goodluck
