hey, i got my wheels in and they dont rub. i still have to lower the car and dont think there should be any problems.
i got 19x8.5 front with 215 35 and 19x9.5 rear with 235 35 tires. The wheels are both 35 mm offset. if i went with 225 35 in front they would fit perfect but not any bigger, the rear i can go max 235 with no rubbing so im glad i chose that size.
have a look at my album, let me know what you think.
19*9.5et35 will most likely rub even on stock height, you could make it fit nice without rubbing but you need smaller tires then recommended.
I have 18*9et 35 on the rear with 235/40/18 tires and I dont run at all and I'm lowered. If I put a 255 tire (which is whats recommended on a 9" I will rub)
Recommended size for your rims would be 265/30R19 but you will rub like crazy with a 265 tire, you need to go EITHER 245/30R19 or 235/35R19 on your 9.5" rims. It will be stretched, but I dont see any other way about it. I would personally go with 235 tire , incase you want to lower the car in the future.
