ET35 will fit.
Go with 235/35 or 245/35 in the front and 265/30 or 275/30 in the rear.

I have 245/35 and 275/30 on mine. No rubbing at all. You just can't drop the car aggressively on that setup without having to do other modifications.

No, it really should be 35 profile in front and 30 profile in the rear with 19" tires.

The sizes posted are recommended because they do not offset the speedometer.

If you were to lower the car aggressively, it seems that rolling the fenders would be the least of your concerns. On stock height my front wheels are only a few millimeters away from gouging out the fender lining.

My rear wheels are fine tho. I won't be lowering the rear anyway, it already sits pretty low.

I would recommend for you to go with the 235/35/19 in the front and 275/30/19 in the rear if you're planning to lower the vehicle. The Forgestar F14 are TPMS compatible and you have the choice of either purchasing a new set or swapping over your existing ones from your wheels. Feel free to drop me a PM if you have any questions at all!

Ok I'm going to by tires and wondering if the michelin Piliot sports 245/35/19 in the front and 275/30/19 in the rear would fit with out any rubbing or anything else? The reason is because my friend is giving me these for free. Thanks
