You can go with the 19x8.5 ET35 with a 235/35/19 in the front and 19x9.5 ET33 with a stretched 255/30/19 in the rear without rubbing on stock height. You do also want to choose a tire with a rounded side wall such as the Falken 452!

8.5 +35 with a 235 and a 9.5 +33 with a 255 can work. I would not suggest anything lower then a +33 with anything wider then a 255 tire. Due to the widened track, wheel fitments do need to be slightly more conservative then Pre-LCI setups.

You can do a 10" rear, something in the et38 area with a 255/30/19 tire on it, but you will need a fender roll if you roll with people in the car.

you can also go up to an et25 up front on an 8.5" with a 215/35/19 tire.

im running 19x8.5 front with a 235 et 30 ands flush with slight rubbing going over bumps. in the rear im running 19x10 et 37 265 stretched tire. plan on trying out a 5 or even 10mm spacer. no rubbing in the rear without the spacer. im lowered on pro kits.

don't screw around with crazy off sets and stretching tires if you don't have to esp if you are considering lowering your car,,, 19x8.5 et 35 front and 19x9.5 et 35 rear on a 265/30 tire. (this is what I am running w/no issues) This set-up is pretty flush and it will also give you some flexibility/room if you want to lower the car. Not to mention if at some point down the road you really want to go agressive and roll fenders and add camber you can always add spacers. There isn't a whole lot you can do after buying an offset that is to agressive other than roll your fenders.

10 +38 with a 255 can work but it may require some fender work.

Side wall is square and the tire runs fairly true.
