has anyone done this? any issues if i were to do this?

i was looking into 18/8.5 front with a 235/35/18 up too 255*
and a 19/9.5 rear with a 255/30/19 tire up too 275*
what offset would i need? do i need to roll fenders or get flairs if i lower 1.5"?
will abs work still?



* not sure what size yet depends on what i do to the motor...



thanks in advance :)

I would not mix the sizes with the wheels, you can/will throw off your wheel speed sensor and can/will affect your abs. IMO just go with 19's staggered. I ran with 19x8.5 225/35/19 front and 19x9.5 255/30/19 with no problems.

Be it true, but those cars were designed that way from the factory. All handling, weight, braking/ABS, traction control etc... were all adjusted and accounted for. In my opinion its not the safest way to go and not really beneficial anyways. Just my 2 cents.
