235/35/19s & 265/30/19s are probably the widest tires you could run with those wheels and still be able to fit them.
I am trying to avoid having to get dedicated track tires, as I already have a set of dedicated winters taking up space, but I have considered getting Apex track wheels, might be a good idea to get dedicated track wheels. My only question/problem with this is that if I do need to roll the fenders for the 19x10 ET22, would smaller tires/wheels like a 18" track setup look weird? Is 265/30/19 normal size for a stretched size for 19x10?

The car is still fairly new, so I don't plan on upgrading the suspension just yet, but I have looked at the JRZ RS1 non-height-adjustable dampers (reviewed by CJ421 and some others) and it seems like the drop will be very minimal from the ZSP suspension. Besides, isn't it a better idea to not lower the car too much for track, since that would affect the balance of the car? (This idea seems intuitive to me)

I really hope you are right! Will it rub without tire stretch and camber? BTW you have a really insane setup! Too low for me, but I can really appreciate it.

Thanks for the replies, keep them coming! Visual aids are welcome too. I am completely new to fitting wheels, so I might be a little inquisitive, hope no one minds!
