    Need recommendations for upgrading wheel/tire pairings for the Scion Frs

    Ok 2013 Scion FRS. Been riding on the original tires (Turanza) since I bought it in Oct 2013 except for the short period of time I had snow tires on.


    Its gotten to the point where even though the tread depth looks ok I have VERY little traction even on dry roads. So I want to upgrade the tires and wheels to a larger diameter after the snow tires come off.


    Can I get some suggestions for good upgraded (larger) wheel/tire pairings that have worked out for you? Nice specific sizings and brands please.


    Also, does going to a larger diameter tire affect the speedometer and/or void the warranty?


    Thanks much.

    I have Enkei Raijins 18x8.5" +45 offset in the front, 18x9.5" +45 offset in the back. 225/40/18 fronts, 255/35/18 backs Michelin Pilot Super Sports. For the most part, this is the standard sizing for a staggered setup (larger rims+tire at the back). There's insane amount of grip, and it'll clear stock suspension.

    Larger diameter tires barely affects speedometer, and will not void your warranty.
