Staggered Wheels On An Evo

I've got a set of Rays CE28n wheels off my 350z that I fancy putting on my Tommi Mak just for a change for the summer.
They are 19's but 10.5" on the rear and 9.5" on the front, any suggestions on tyre size to keep the rolling circumference the same?

I wouldnt think they will fit being that width without arch mods, but if your gunna try a 30 or 35 profile would proberly be needed and the handling/ride would be crap

You'll rip your diff apart no matter what size of tyres you put on!

Okey dokey, I'll stick with the standard wheels then
I've got 2 Maks and have only got this up, running & mapped after nearly 2 years so I'd like to at least use it for a while without further grief

I very much appreciate the replies, I'll leave the wheels on the 350z!!

Were you running anything like 19" x 10.5" rims? They're crazy too big on an Evo

Running the same or very similar rolling radius is ok but any degree of difference spells trouble.

The wheel diameter and/or geo settings won't influence the loads on the transmission - its unequal rolling radius that's the problem

Not entirely true!! Excess camber will cause the transmission to work at incorrect angle and will put strain on it!! Rim diameter really won't matter a toss unless you stick 24" rims on something on it lol

I've run staggered on a few gtrs in the past, I think the biggest were 18's though. It was something like, from memory, 275/35/18 rear and 245/40/18 fronts. The rolling circumference was the same so caused no issue, I've also run a couple of STi's but on 17's.
These all arrived from Japan like that, I've put 19 rears and 18 fronts on a few of my NSX but of course these are just rwd not 4wd
All opinions appreciated!

The gtr awd system is completely different, using a multiplate wet clutch to transfer drive to the front under certain conditions, it's not a full time 4wd system like the evo.
