Ok...I HAVE checked out the info on this topic already....so if you are gonna bash me....PLEASE don't reply. Thank you. I'm fairly new and just looking for advice. I'm having trouble deciding between 18's and 19's. Will this setup work:
front----19x8.5 w 235/35/19 tire, rear---19x8.5 w 265/30/19 tire? I'm getting my rear fenders rolled next week to fit the big rubber in the back. I have stock ride height now, looking to get a 1.5inch drop in the future w/ suspension upgrades.

a lot of fitment issues depend also on your offset so you may want to post that as well. as far as the front goes you might be pushing it. i was told my 19x8.5 will fit up front but i'm going to run 225.35.19 not a 235. as far as the rear, if your doing some fender modification you should be fine. once again i'm not positive and without knowin your offset no one can be 100% sure but i hope that helps.

well...the offset is+45....I think your right on the front though....I'm gonna go with the 225. As far as the back, what about a 9.5 w/ +45 offset?

back will not fit w/ a 45 offset...if you're going as wide as a 9.5...go with something like 55 offset and run 255's...you might rub...u might not. if so...it'll only taking a little rolling/shaving.

let john lai's assistant field this one ;)

19x8.5 will not fit the front....and if it did...you'd rub and it'd be shitty
19x8 is the BEST choice for the front with a 45 offset and 235 tires.

in the rear

yes you CAN run 19x9.5 with a 45 offset. you WILL have to shave the fender and pull it out tho.

Again the best choice for the rear is 19x9 with a shaved fender.

As for tire size you can run whatever you want. I've had 245's on my 19x9 before. but ideally you run 255/35/19. you can run 265 but with a 30 wall.


THIS IS THE BEST POST ON THIS TOPIC
