quick fitment question

I have a 2008 sedan (rwd) , with the sports package.

I have some beyern mesh wheels:

19x8.5 ET30
19x9.5 ET30

My tires are

235/35/19
265/30/19

The big question... will it rub?


I looked inside the wheels and was actually surprised to see ET30 on both the front and rear wheels. Does this seem normal or OK?

One of the funnier episodes of South Park... show can be hit or miss, but that episode is quite funny.

Also:

Might as well ask this awhile - I do NOT want to have to roll my fenders. I would maybe be OK with cutting some felt back or something though...

... but with those tire sizes, having a PRE-LCI SEDAN, should I get spacers awhile or will the wheels look good? I am not after a super aggressive stance, I just don't want the "sunken in" wheel look...

... the wheels are ET30, so I am thinking they should be OK stance wise without spaces, but please chime in!!!

ahha yay finally someone caught my sp response lol, youre right most of the sp epi's are hit or miss.

Those wheel/tire specs are beyond conservative for a non roll situation without rub and should not be needing any carpet lining removed.

When youre in the 9.5 +15 or lower with a decent drop with no stretch then youll be in dire need of a roll.

9.5 +30 pokes 15mm more vs OEM 19 sport 230s (9 +39), youre pre lci which has an extra 8mm of free clearance vs a e92/e90 LCI.
