Opinions? (New tire setup)

Decided to run 285/40/19 instead of the stock 285/35/19. So far so good, but the cruise control won't engage above 100 km/h..

They look way too big to me. Too much sidewall...

Did you also upsize the front?
295/35/19 might be a better idea for slightly larger tires, but the rear rims might not be wide enough for it to look good.

I have to agree.
It may also start sending your DSC into a frenzy.

So far no issues with DSC. I want to keep them on until our roads get fixed. The fronts are stock. I ran 295/35/19 before, but they are too wide for a 9.5 inch rim...
