Not sure aobut the 265s on a sedan. It should fit. but you'd definitely need to roll the fenders with any those combinations. You can probably get away with rubbing with the stock suspension.

I'm kind of thinking the front won't be an issue. It's the rear that I'm a bit concerned about.

With stock suspension, you think I might be able to get away with it (265 in rear)? =)

yea you should.

I had 19x10s withe 265 on my Cab with SP and didnt rub. So with stock suspenstion on a sedan, you should be fine.

I realize that should I add the springs, the rubbing issue will definitely come into play.

Ci/Cic have more room in the fenders to accommodate 265s.

265s on a sedan NEED fender mods. I.E. rolling

What's the widest you can go on a sedan for the rears on 19x9s (w/o rolling)?
