    285/35R19 tire on a 19x10 et36 wheel for a 987.2. Will it work?

    I hope this is not a double post as I can't find my initial post that I swear I just posted.

    I am getting wheels for my car but I am stuck on the tire size for my new wheels in the rear. I will get getting a 19x10 ET 36 wheel. I want the best wheel protection via width and sidewall height so I wanted to run a 285/35R19 tire. I have only really seen this mentioned once on the forum and most people have opted for a 285/30R19. I really want the extra sidewall height to protect my wheels so if anyone has any advice I would appreciate it. I just want to make sure it will fit okay. If I have to, I would not mind going down to a 9.5" rear wheel if that means I could run a 275/35R19 tire. I don't mind any handling changes it will make such as understeer etc. I just want max wheel protection and a beefier tire look on 19's.

    I'm somewhat close to your idea.
    I did 285/30x18 et 54 with 15mm spacer 54-15=39
    By extra sidewall protection I guess are talking rim to ground clearance. This should be fine. 9.5 doesn't help with this protection but would give more clearance against curbs. As the tire pushes out more.

    I run 285/35/18 NT05s on the street with 18x10 ET36 Apex wheels. You'll probably need some negative camber but should work fine.
