Hope that helps.

wow, hey pete, i thought the HM2s had 38 for the 19x10s. how else do you explain that huge lip? if u go 265s, the tire is right up touchin the fenders!!!

It's 44. A 19x10 +38 wouldn't fit IMO. The lip is all inherent in the design of the wheel.

so, if i put a 19x10 HM2s in the rear with 19/30/265s and drop it, do i need someone to roll the fenders to get rid of the rubbing issue? or no issue at all? i plan to get them next month

you have to roll the fenders no matter what if you run 265s.

19x10s have a +44 offset. but the wheel have the same design as the +38 19x8.5s so you will still have that lip.

I have seen the 18" HM2s and they dont look deep lips to me, unlike the 19". It seems to be there's a big difference. Why is that so? I definitely go with the 19".

so the dish deepness is different btw the 18" and the 19"? I like the deep dish but i cannot go with 19" cause the road sucks around here... they would be gone in a matter of an afternoon...

What are you talkin' about!? The overall circumference with a tire is nearly the same. Why would the DSC and ABS notice any difference?

17x245x45 ~= 18x235x40 ~= 19x235x35
differ by no more than 0.6%!
