I'm surprised that you don't have any rubbing issues in the front.

It could look good. A member on another forum just ordered some Sunken Treasure VB3s for his red GTI. So once I get pictures of the wheels on his car I'll make sure to share them with you.

My sedan runs on 265/30R19 in the rear. Same wheel offset and I'm lowered without too much problem except on really deep dips. Moderate dips may rub slightly on the rear driver side tire tread but rarely. Seeing you're on a coupe you'll have no problem with space. All I did was roll my fenders aggressively and shave rear bumper clips just in case with a dremal tool.

the reason why iam asking is about michelin ps2,
they dont have 255/30/19 tyres
but they do have 245/35/19
will the tyre width, componsate the higher height, of the tyre too fit well in the rear fender?
and i want too do some lowering too, soo will my rear rim 9.5j 245/35/19 et 45
fit in the fender when my car is lowered ?

your lowering looks sweet btw
