I haven't seen many Orient Blue Sedans so this will definitely be a bit tough... If you are open to other color cars, then I can throw together some photos for you.

I personally think Super Silver, Hyper Silver, or Hyper Black would look perfect on your dark blue.

Have you seen our new V718's? They are basically a hybrid between the VB3 and V710's. Having the best of both worlds.

can't go wrong with VMR, make sure you order the correct wheel offset if you're going 19's to avoid rubbing.

Is that a ZHP rear bumper with a right exhaust cut-out?

255 rears can work depending on what tire manufacturer you decide on going with. With a 255 its a real hit or miss situation since Sedans have smaller rear fenders.

If you are lowered, I cant guarantee you wont rub but... Falken FK452's and Toyo T1R's seem to work the best for those who have minimal clearance. Both tires offer a rounded sidewall and run slightly narrow.

for Falken FK452's they don't carry 255/30/19? only 245/35. 245's wont rub right?
