225/35-20 with 245/30-20 and you should be fine.

Rears should be shaved and you should be good.

Need opinions on this setup and what everyone would recommend. I'm torn between these two sizes for the Matte Black Volk TE37s;

19x9.5 +22 Front/ 19x10.5 +22 Rear

OR

19x9.5 +12 Front/ 19X10.5 +12 Rear

For tires I was looking at 235/35 front and 265/30 rear.

Originally I was going to go with the +22 setup and just do 10mm spacers, but I've never been a huge fan of spacers so if I can just get the wheels in those size I'd prefer it. Originally I didn't think the +12 would clear, but now everyone is saying they should.

I'll be running BC Coilovers and it's pretty much a daily driver so it won't be super dumped, but it will be fairly slammed.

I don't have a problem shaving the inside of the fenders and doing some minor (very minor) rolling if necessary, but I'm not looking to do any real metal work on my fenders.

What do you guys think of that setup? How bad do you think it will rub? Any recommendations or changes? Thanks!

im gona go for +22!

if im not wrong running: 19x9.5 +12 Front/ 19X10.5 +12 Rear

Will def need fenderwork and more stretch for being able to fit. The +22 in rear with a 10.5 is realy flushed when lowered quite much.

I'll be running 19x9 +9 19x10 +9.

I was wondering if I should be running 225/40/19 all around to fit them.

Specs are:

Front 19x8.5 +30 245/35/19
Rear 19x9.5 +30 285/35/19

Here is the link for the wheels:

Trying to find ideal offset and width for the front, I think I know what I need on the rear.

Would 18x8 +35 fit the front flush?

on the rear I want to run 18x9 +29

I intend on bagging the setup in the near future.

2GS

I am wanting to know what the widest front and rear 19" wheels and tires I can run on my 2GS. I want the tires to be flush, and do NOT want the wheels so wide that the tires need to be stretched in order to fit. 1.5" lowered, and am not going to mod the fenders at all.

Then buy 18's if you want thinker sidewalls. You're asking for a world of trouble going that big of a tire. Even 245/35 up front is already slighty oversized, going 245/40 would just be ridiculous and would rub on every turn and not to mention will look jacked

Do people usually start typing without thinking about what they're going to say? Think about what you just said and slap yourself. I mean really, why do you think people roll/shave the fenders and stretch tires for in the first place?
