Your still gonna have to roll on that setup+22. You need to stretch to clear your tires from rubbing the fenders/ fender sitting on your tires.

those pics in original post looks like both the tire and wheel are sticking past the fender and looks like there's wheel gap...doesn't look good at all.

Pretty much sums it up. Fenders are rolled a lot, running 215/35f and 235/35r, megan camber arms spc ball joints, camber is at -3 f and -4r and still rubbing

Yes they make tires big enough. But to be able to run such aggressive widths and offsets you have to undersize your tires (stretch) them to get them clear the fenders. Even with stretched tires youll most likely are still going to have to roll your fenders at a minimum.

I'm running 19x9.5 +19 (3mm spacer to clear stock IS350 caliper) and 19x10.5 +22 on 225/35-19 and 245/35-19.

Rolled and pulled all around - only rub on big dips. LOTS of fender work. Gotta cut out a ton, either ziptie or move the fender tab, and I need to shave the rear fenders a bit more Slammed - one finger gap between rim and fender in the rear, two finger gap between rim and fender in the front. Camber kit in the rear would definitely help, but I didn't need it. I've got almost a full turning radius, aside from a little scrubbing on the fender. I've never really been a huge fan of the massive amount of poke, but I definitely like aggressive fitment. Natural camber makes it so that everything sits perfectly flush with it. Hope it helps!

quoted for truth.

unfortunately, replica wheels (like varrstoens) make it more affordable for people to play the fitment game.

Sometimes Discount Tire wont do stretched tires because they say "the tires dont fit the wheel".

I know you arent a fan of EVS man, but if you're buying brand new wheels, I'd suggest using them for their touchless tire mounting machine so your rims stay as flawless as possible. The old school tire mounters use the metal grips on the side of the rim and they pry the tire on with a metal pry bar (at small shops at least).

I'm not an EVS motors fan either, but until i find another place close with touchless tire mounting, i will still have to go to them. They are clearly able to and willing to run stretched tires for you too.
