Talking Tire rubbing question

I just bought 19x 9.5 in the back and 19x8.5 SSR GT3's for my non-m What size tires do you guys run on these wheels, and how many of you managed without rolling fenders?? I don't want to rub, but don't know where to bring my car to get fenders rolled..

on stock suspension if u want to be SURE not to rub, i'd say 235/35/19 in the front and 245/35/19 in the rear.. 255/30/19s might even work depending on the ssr's offset.

i have 255/30/19 in the rear but i have an aggressive drop and aggressive offsets on my iforged. they don't go on til tonight but i can tell it'll rub. i have 19x8.5 19x9.5 as well.

You should run 235.35.19 in the front and 255.30.19 in the rear. I believe that SSR runs conservative on their rims and you should not rub.

Since you are in San Diego, try calling up Group 5 to roll your fenders. That is the only shop I know that I feel comfortable touching the car. Apex Motorsport might be able to help you out also.

Yeah group 5 said they'd do it for the price of 2 shop hours, but i will be on stock suspension and hopefully i can avoid rolling until i decide to lower car....

you can get away without rolling your fenders if you do not lower your car. you have enough gap in the car where it shouldn't go down that much when you hit a dip or speed bump.

My buddy bought your SSR GT3's from you a while ago. He's not rubbing at all with those wheels, but he's on stock sports suspension.
