Not a problem as long as you roll the rear fenders..
Do you change your suspension or is it stock?

Yes, 245 would be better suited for 19x9 but 235 shouldn't be that bad. The only problem running 245s is that it may rub a bit in the front (if lowered enough). But the 245s will give you a little more protection againt the dreaded curb scrape. Did I say curb scrape? Scary thought! It's probably not a good idea but you can have them stretch the 235 over the rim if you want to but just slightly.

i didnt want to go wide in the rear because it makes the wheel look a lot smaller than it really is:

245/35/19 in the rear for 19x9
235/35/19 in front for 19x8.5

e46fanatic (thread revival!),

Can you elaborate on your experience with 235s on a 19x9 breyton magic? I just purchased the exact same wheels and am currently in the market for tires. Like everyone else mentioned, tirerack recommends 235/35-19, but if you think differently, I'd rather go with your opinion since you have the same setup. You're recommending 245/35-19, correct?

What's your offset on your breyton's? Mine is 40. And do you know how much your dinan car is dropped over regular or sports suspension? I have sports shocks with UUC springs, so mine's lower then normal too. Any rubbing issues with your 245s?

Thanks!

Haha, yeah - wondering if any of the original posters are still around?

Well, I'm gonna be going with 235/35/19 all-around like Paul @ EuroSpec recommended unless someone chimes in and tells me otherwise! Oh yeah - I specified the wrong offset in my last post. It's 42 (not 40).
