tire rubbing question

I am aware alot of the people here have this setup. My question is,

for a this tire size setup Goodyear F1's 235/35/19 front
and 265/30/19 rear

and rim size 19X8.5 front and 19X9.5 back.

I also plan to put in H&R spring on koni yellows or just get a set of coilovers..

Will I rub, when I have passengers sitting at the back seat, or have a heavy load on my trunk?

I'd appreciate some input, for it will help me in making my decition in buying these rims and wether im better of getting coilovers or can just leave it with H&R Sport spring on koni yellows.

thanks

You should not rub at all on your sedan, even with the Goodyear's regardless if you lower your car with the springs/shocks combo or the coil overs. However, this will all depend on your rear wheel offset. What is the offset of the rear wheel so we can further help you.

You should be fine with the H&R sport springs and Koni yellows. The H&R sport spring is not a very aggressive drop. There is a very slim chance of rubbing happening with your car fully loaded with passengers but its highly unlikely. I could be wrong since I have not personally used the Goodyear's, but we have installed them on customer's wheels and the sidewall is on the larger side but it should not be much of an issue. I'm sure a member with first hand use and knowledge of a similar set up will chime in on this soon.

What wheel are you going with? And there is nothing wrong with going with the coilovers with the exception of the inital price, but you do have the ability to adjust your ride height which is a very big plus factor.

You will not rub at all. That set up is just fine, even with, from what I believe I read, was ET30 in the rear right? As for your H&R Spring and Koni Yellows, what is that? About $8-900?? You should get coilovers instead.. it's better to spend a few hundred more for more compatible suspension setup!

yes, how much do KW coilovers go. I am aware that there are 3 versions of these. I only need it for everyday driving, and for it to be easy to adjust. I don't auto cross either.

You will be perfect with just KW V1 Coilovers. They are height adjustable, inexpensive compared to the other two variants, and they have a please ride comfort
