The widest in the front would be 9" and the rear would be 10". Of course you could go wider with fender modification.

no... the max is 265 with serious fender rolling... you should just go 255 to be safe...

if you have 19x8.5 all around then you cant really have a staggered setup. if you put a 255 or a 265 size tire on a 8.5 rim then the tire will stick out too much away from the rim. i have 19x8.5 in front with a 235/35/19 tire and a 19x9.5 in the rear with a 265/30/19 tire. offset is 37. i am dropped on intrax sports (1.6 in front and 1.2 in rear) and did not need to roll the fenders if i were you then i would go with 235 tire size and maybe get some wheels spacers to get a more aggresive look by sticking out the wheels a little. good luck bro

i know that the biggest rims you can go with are 20's because that's what i have on my ride. i have the 225/35/20 nitto 555's and i was surprised because there's no rubbing. i can send you pics to prove it but i'm the guy having problems with my rieger kit being put on. so as soon as i get my car back, hopefully later today or tomorrow, i'll be posting up pics.
