Question Definitive, AWD G37 infiniti sports wheels?

Good day everyone. I'm getting my G37X in a few days and this is my first AWD vehicle. It's an automatic as well. I'm wondering if I can install the Infiniti sports wheels without harming the drive train. I went ahead and bought a set of wheels because they were too good of a deal to pass. The current tires on them are 225/45/19 and 245/40/19 the tread is awful and they both need new tires. I've read and read and read countless back and forth about as long as the difference is under 5% you'll be okay, but some say that changes as the tread life wears down.

Actually could I not just run 245/40/19's all the way around?

With an AWD you have to use tires with the same outside diameter. If your wheels are the same width, that makes it easy. If the wheels widths are staggered, then you need to take more care to match sidewall heights and tire widths to have the same outside diameter of the tires.

I see the tires on those wheels are staggered but the wheels can be the same width. Do you know the wheel widths?

I'm going to try and find that out today. If there a way to do it other than removing the tire and looking for a stamp inside? I believe they are the same width.

The wheel will usually have the width stamped on the back side of the spokes.

What year and model car were your wheels originally on?

What are the tire sizes?
