Volk SF Winnings
19x8.5 +38 front
19x9.5 +29 rear

Rear fenders have a slight roll done by a local body shop (no paint cracks or sloppy work) and I have zero rubbing issues, even over the harshest dips on the highway. I'm running stock tire sizes for now, but planning on adding a little more rubber (245s and 265s most likely) when it is time to replace them.

Hey vbb, why did you roll the fenders? Is your car lowered? I'm running 285/25/20 on 20x10.5 on the rears and no rubbing at all.

Yeah, but I bet you're not on +29 offsets in the rear either. I was hoping I wouldn't have to rub, but as soon as I put the wheels on and then tried to get up my driveway, I got a slight rub on the rear passenger side on that sharp part inside the fender well. No matter how I angled the car, I'd get some rub. I also got rubbing when I'd hit dips on certain parts of a particularly crappy section of interstate that I travel pretty often. When I noticed I was cutting fine lines into my right rear tire's sidewall, I figured I'd better roll the fenders or get different tires. After rolling, I've got zero rubbing issues at all, and now feel that I can put a bit wider tire out back if I wanted to as well.

Love this thread... some amazing wheels and ISF......

.I need some insight from people who have done this:

I would like to put 285/30/19s on the rears on stock wheels and BC coilovers, what i want to know is if i keep the current stock height with the coilovers installed- to prevent any rubbing , will this set up work?

or is BC preset to 1" lower , meaning i cant increase the height after install to the current height?

I don't wanna shave/cut/chop/bend/dent/or do anything to fenders

front 245/35/19

Looks good and 18s are much better for the track than 19s honestly. You get a taller sidewall and a lighter wheel at the same time.
