anything's possible. maybe cut/stretched fenders though. i have a staggered 18x8.5 and 18x 9.5 and i wish i would have gone 18x8.5 squared. the 9.5's in the rear look almost silly IMO. i'm on OEM sport springs and haven't had any rubbing even with 800 lbs of adults in the car.

Anything is possible. There are people that do run 9.5s in a square setup, it just depends on how much work you're willing to put in. Sounds like you know what you're getting into though. You'll probably have to run skinnier tires than we usually recommend customers though because we've tested our wheels at stock height.

I've ordered my VB3's with 255/30/19 @ back. will there be any rubbing? (looking to lower the car with some eibach pro springs.

i drive with a trailer a few times a year... maybe that's important?

That sized tire is what we recommend for your car but if you're planning on lowering your car we cannot guarantee anything. We've tested the sizes we recommend and they have been trouble free, but if you lower your car it changes things. I think for the most part you will be OK, but if you do rub you probably will have to roll the fenders a little to clear. We have a lot of customers who have lowered cars so I don't think you have too much to worry about with just springs.
