265/30/19 with spacers???

Hi guys,

I have a quick question, I just purchased a set of 19" 230 wheels & right now I'm considering 265/30/19 for the rear tires, I'm planning to put spacers to get a more aggresive stance.

The car will also be lowered; no gap or 1 finger gap. Any idea what size spacers? I dont want any rubbing or fender rolling.

Thanks

do you know the offset of the wheels?


i would put the wheels on first, lower it, and then see how much space you have left for spacers.

19x8 +37 225/35 squared tire +10-12mm spacer no roll no rub
19x9 +39 255/30 squared tire
265/30 minor obese +10-12mm spacer no roll no rub

Anything smaller than 8mm spacer will have no visual impact basically to fine tune clearance issues. You will need extended studs anything larger than 5mm.

Ok, so I need confirmation on this. i've decided on the Hankook V12 tires with the following spec: Front 235/35/19, Rear: 265/30/19 (with 10mm spacers), the car will be lowered with KW V1. Based on what I read around the forum, from Tee212 & 02themax I should not have any issues with fender rubbing or the need to roll them.
