Another will it rub thread

I've recently got some MV4 alloys and planning to lower the car with H&R springs next week, however I'm a little concerned if it will be too low and whether it will rub....

Tyres:
225/35/19
265/30/19

Can anyone help?

I believe the offsets for the MV4s are ET37 8jx19 for the front and ET39 9jx19 for the rear.
Anyone confirm that?

yup that's the correct offsets (source)...
and for spacers, i think you could have 15mm on the front and 20mm on the rear and be fine... best thing to do is put a piece of tape on your fender so a bit is hanging off, measure the distance from the tape to the tyre and see what you can do

From experience I am going to say this wont fit at the rear. I think you could run a 15mm up front but it will prob rub on full lock on the wheel liner. The rear I don't think you will be able to go more than 12mm unless you get the arches rolled. 15mm with arches rolled.

i'm running 19x8.5 et28 225/35 on the front with loadsa space to spare, 8.5et28 = 8et22 so et37 + 15mm spacer makes sense... and on the rear, 19x9.5 et25 with a 255/30, and i'm pretty sure there'll be enough room for 265/30 with no fender work... 9.5et25 = 9et19 so et39 + 20mm makes sense too... i guess 265/30 on a 9j would bulge a bit... also i'm low enough to scrape on humps...

not saying i'm 100% right, just backing up my spacer talk lol... i would wanna be as aggressive as possible!
