Help... ordered ARC-8s but...

Here's the situation

I'm currently running a staggered setup with 19x8.5 and 9.5 OZ's (offset 46) and with H&R Cup kit. Some rubbing under load so decided to order ARC-8 square setup 19x8.5 et 35 - I'm positive I wont have rubbing issues BUT you think a 9" ET38 rear would rub?

Thanks!

You're moving the wheel out 8mm farther than it was, plus you have .5" less of wheel. I guess it really depends on how bad your rub is.

Awesome. Yeah, square ARC-8's in 8.5" won't rub at all, especially if you have an M.

If you want to get rid of rubbing with your current wheels n tires,
Raise it up a 1/4" all around, problem solved.
