Default 19x8.5 Offset 25. What tires size should I get!? HELP

I have a 06 AWD is250. Just got megan coils in looking to lower it 25" fender to ground. What size tires would you recommend so I don't rub when I turn, front fender linners, fenders, etc. Also looking for a stretched look! Thanks

205 is to small in my opinion, I think 215/35/19 will give you that perfect stretch

215/35/19 will be perfect. Not too wide and not too narrow. You shouldn't rub and you're not going to slam it too low.

215/35/19 will also give you better handling too. If light wheels. Heavy wheel you will feel lack of performance.

Yes but do research on tire brand cause some brands run wide

I'm running the same for the fronts. Where exactly is it rubbing? You might have to adjust the metal tabs near the fender? Also how's your camber looking?
Yes I know my wheels are dirty as hell.
