Pushing the limits with 19" rears... 19x9.5 et23.3?

So I'm wondering, what can be done with a fender cut/roll and adjustable camber? I would probably run a 225/35 PS2.

I bought 19x9 et29.5 rears for now to try out, and see if that fits in front too. I have a feeling it will, and more will be possible in the rear.

I want to see if I can make the inner barrels bigger in the back too, and I think I can.. so 19x10 might be possible. the fronts might be able to increase the barrel size too, especially since I have to run a 5mm spacer for the centers to clear the brakes.

Any experience/opinions on my thoughts? I'm getting all excited.. sorry

Ideally it would be at this ride height-

19x10 rears are possible if you stretch tires.

Here's a shot of one of our shop cars running 19x10 +38 with a 245 Kumho SPT which has a extremely square sidewall. Fenders were excessively rolled with a slight pull and I believe -2.5 camber was added.

i know im not on 19s, and i def dont sit as low as you Alec, but 18x10 255/35/18 ET38 is working great for me, no rub at all, except when the wheel is tucked waaaay under the fender on angled driveways.
