Thanks for the info

Stance coilovers. Just lowered enough to eliminate the wheel well gap.

Thoughts on this setup? Are these pretty conservative fitments? Am I going to be rolling sunken battleships?

19x8.5 +40 front
19x9.5 +38 rear

I guess the bright side is I can dump it with minimal fender work. What tire size would you suggest ?

Unfortunately OP this thread is useless. No matter how many threads are out there, there will be some jackass who won't/can't search for the answer and will make a new thread. sad but true

AMSMIKE that size is almost 1" taller than the OEM setup. You got the widths right but sidewall profile wrong.

245/35R19
275/30R19

This is proper. If you go with your tire setup not only is it 1" taller when you turn you most likely will rub esprecially if you are lowered.

overall diameter of the OEM 16's is onlt 26.16 and the OEM 17's is 25.33 so you should stay between there

Here's a good quick reference

For those looking for fat(er) tire set up mine is as follows with only triming the rear inner fender lip to fit.

19x8.5 +34 F w/either 235 or 245/35/19 no mod at all and rim is fairly flush +30 ideal offset I think in front (my opinion with out stretch).

19x10 +30/28 w/285 or 295/30/19 Only have to trim the lip off the inner fender and the 295's look really sick if you like the wide stance in the back.

My .02 some will say different but I have had this on my car and I tucked the rear tire with out rubbing. GL all

on my winter setup right now i'm running 19x9/10 +22 all around, 225/40 Blizzaks all around. Slight roll all around. Would be a great setup for someone looking to get flush but not super crazy.

Although I would run a 255/35 on the rear instead of a 225/40.

Only reason i'm running that same tire size all around is because the tires were on closeout for $125each haha....dirt cheap for those 19" winter tires.

Trying to price tires right now for 19 vs 20....what size should I run for this setup. Probably going to lower on coilovers, don't want to run stretch, keep it with in the factory diameter if possible.


What about the tire sizes for a 20x8.5 f, 20x9.5 r (+35 & +40) ??

I got a set of

19x9 +24
19x10 +24

Thinking of running like a 225/40 or 235/35 up front and then a 235/40 or 245/35 in the rear, or something along those sizes.

Im planning on shaving the rear fender and rolling the front.. Just wondering what you guys think about it. From what I've seen/read looks like it should fit pretty easily without too aggressive of an alignment.

What sort of camber do you run front and rear? Just curious as your current wheels/tires are pretty close to what I'll be running.

you should run a 225/35 and 235/35 on a 19 and you should be right in factory spec. The stretch will be slightly more on the rear so the diameter should be same front and back, or pretty damn close
