HiCustomer

You've got some expensive tires there. Hope you can sell them. Well there's good and bad news. The only cars that had the 325/30/ZR19 (size, not necessarily brand) as OEM - would be the following:

1) E92 BMW M3
2) Porsche Turbo
3) Porsche GT2

RARE - MEGA DOLLAR Super Cars. So these would be a 'hard sell' in some ways. Not many of these cars around. The above vehicles came with Michelin; Pilot Sport Cup Tires - in that size.

Good News? Good news is, these tires will fit other, more down to Earth cars, like the 2005-present Corvette C6/Z06. So, that's a more "main stream" car for you to target. Try online Corvette Forums. Also, some Mustang Owners have run this tire on their GT's and Cobras.

Keep in mind, since this SIZE tire is not OEM for many vehicles - many that can USE them with proper wheel - I MUST STRESS that in no way am I, nor should you, ENDORSE or IMPLY that their use is safe and tested on any non OEM application. Again, I'm talking about size. In fact, if you sell them to some local 'Hot-Rodder' have him/her sign a simple release. Nothing fancy. Simply that the buyer is purchasing at their own risk. Not trying to scare you, simply being honest. With modification comes liability.

-------
Next Size:
275/35/ZR18
1) Porsche 911 Carrera
2) BMW M3
3) BMW 328i
4) Nissan Maxima

Again, target audience - SUPERCAR, mainly. But, 328i = higher end entry level-ish, luxury performance car. And, Nissan Maxima needs no explanation or introduction. Lastly, if the PLAN IS to sell all 4 of these tires to ONE person for use on ONE vehicle, like the 275's up front and 325's out back - it's a HARD sell. First off, you'd be now targeting the SUPERCARS to do this. And, if those two sizes are again - not an OEM "match" (as very few cars have different size tires on same car, as per axle) it's a hard sell. I would just list these tires online as "may purchase all 4 or 2 of each size, as needed" - to maximize buyer interest.

These are NOT truck tires by design. Although some trucks may fit them. However, my research did not prove that out. I have plenty hits and OEM listings, only on Performance Cars as noted above.

Perhaps you may list them for sale on any 'Performance Car Forum' type website. Google > 'bmw forum', or 'porsche forum' and so on. Craig's List is another avenue to explore.. And, eBay Automotive is fine, but I feel they "charge" enough for their service. (simply my opinion. this in no way a negative statement)

So, there you are. I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX is helpful. Even if you 'Accept this Answer' be confident - I will not run away from any brief, RELATED, follow up inquires. Thanks!

HiCustomer

 

No worry.Here are some years that will work, based on my research which has uncovered ACTUAL vehicles, these years (as below) with the SAME size tire. Many, are owners, who post info about their car on various automotive based websites... Enthusiast sites and such.

 

I have access to a lot of good info, as I'm networked thoroughly in my business. I have been diagnosing/repairing cars & trucks since the 80's. I have been online, non-stop, since 1997.

 

With that said, let us get back to your Question >>

 

Either size tire, when used with appropriate wheel, will fit:

 

1) Maxima Cars from; 2004 to present.

2) BMW 3 Series from; 1999 to present

3) Porsche 911/Carerra from; 2004 to present

PLUS - all cars noted in my original Answer. This does NOT mean these tires cannot fit other/older model years, or even different or modified cars of ANY year, make or model, for that matter. All this means is, the cars/years I have researched and listed, are from owners that have used the tire sizes in your question and listed there vehicles online. Lastly, I have uncovered additional and HELPFUL info for you... Read On >>

 

UPDATE:

I have wonderful news,Customer

Further research on my part, has uncovered VALUABLE information >>

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar EMT (run-flat) Tire, was Original Equipment in 275/35-18 & 325/30-ZR19 for the C6 Corvette (2006 to present, only) with either the Z51 or Z06 performance package. *Meaning* those 2 different tire sizes, came on ONE car from the factory.

 

Here is spec >>

2006 CORVETTE C6 Z06 TIRES AND WHEELS:
Tires: Goodyear Supercar Eagle F1
Front - P275/35ZR-18
Rear - P325/30ZR-19
Wheels: Front - 18x95in.
Rear: 9x12in.

 

Hope this does it for you. Thanks!

 

Best,
