I wouldn't recommend that, you look pretty low. If you did a 225 front and 245 rear, then maybe so.

Is it the offset that is bad or the tire size bc I currently run a set of Iforged senekas 19x8.5, 9.0 w/ 235/265 tires...

It's the offset. You need to be running a 40-45mm on a sedan. Even then the 265 might give you problems. If you want those 265s get a 45+ mm rear.

Hmm dang, that sucks, was really looking forward to a set a wheels offered to me with this offset

Edit - Forgot to add, I have had my rear fenders rolled, I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Would really like to try and get these wheels to fit.

The fronts you will be okay with on 235/35/19's. As far as the rear, it gets a bit tricky since you have a sedan and being at that height. 19x9.0 +36 would only be 3mm more aggressive then a 19x9.5 +45 wheel but with a 265/30/19 tire, that will pose a challenge. I would suggest going with a 245 rear tire to be safe from any kind of rubbing issues. Some aggressive fender rolling/flaring will be needed to run a 265 rear tire.

Thanks for the help! So would I want a 245/30/19?

Edit...nvm don't think I understand what the "30" stands for lol
Guess I can only get a 35, or 40 for a 245/19....which do I want ?

The middle number is a profile, which is a percentage of the width. So a 245/30/19 is a tire that is 245mm wide with a height of 30% of 245 and 19 inches in diameter.

I would go with a 245/35/19. A 245/30/19 is very small.
