Tyre sizes and lowering

Quick question...

I know that you can run 265/30/19 and 235/35/19 at standard height without issues but if i were to lower my car (which i plan on doing in the future) would i have issues with rubbing etc?

Thanks in advance.

This all depends on the wheel offsets and whether u run spacers.
For the standard oem wheels and no spacers you will not have any rubbing issues at all

Spacers are also possible with no rubbing issues but this depends on the size of the spacer...and to a certain degree the brand of tyre

What type of lowering method are you going to use?
Just springs or something else ?

I had some ET 27 rear wheels(different offset than oem) and uprated my tyres too 35 profile in the back. I had a bit of rubbing but sorted it out by rolling the arches.

Most likely will be coilovers, not sure what brand at the moment.

With coilovers you will have more flexibility.
