19x10 or 19x8.5?

I am getting a set of 19"HM2s, and I can't decide if I should get 8.5's or 10's in back. Could anybody tell me what the pros and cons would be in either situation? Thanks in advance.

Dronell19 said he can live with the rubbing. It's not that bad if you roll the fenders. Again, it also depends on how you drive and how low you drop your car. I'm going with the H&R sport because I dont want it that low to cause problems. Again, I personally think the extra $200 is worth it. The extra width in the rear looks MEAN.

Mik, looks like this section is not as responsive as we thought.

Eddie is out on vacation right now, I figured that he would be the one that would have an answer. Since I am not going to be dropping my car for the time being, they probably won't rub too much, I'll just have to slow down my driving so that they don't rub and everyone can see my nice new rims, huh? Did you say that they have two sets in stock?

if price is a concern with any of you guys.. i'd go 8.5 all around... that way you can rotate the tires so that they last longer... that's what i'm probably gonna wind up doing

i know.. i'm cheap..

Michael (Mike), I did respond to all your messages. I was so tired after 11pm so I went to bed.

Mike(Mik), you guys are confusing me with the same name. If you're concerned about the look, drop it or else leave it stock suspension. I m so crazy about the dropped look, i cannot help it anymore...haha...

calvin, u're not the only cheapo here....me, too!!
