What tires do I need to lower and stop rubbing in my car (19x9.5) (et22)

I currently have 265/30/19 and thats why I'm rubbing although I wanna lower my car on coils or h&r race or sport. Would 235 25 19s work or what or do I just need new wheels in order for me to lower it
Thanks in advance!

You need to roll your fenders and increase the negative camber for starters. et22 on a 19x9.5 wheel for a non-m is ridiculous. You can get away with a 235/35R19 tire. 235/25 is too narrow of a sidewall.

To make this work your going to have to do a lot of fender work which includes rolling,pulling and shaving
your fender. I'm running that current setup right now (225 30 19 up front and 245 35 19 et22.)

That can be a easy alternative if you the OP is looking for a direct bolt-on fitment. If you do decide to go with a proper 9.5 +45 offset, you are able to run up to a 265 safely.

With the 9.5 +22, fender rolling, shaving, and camber will be needed. The widest tire I would recommend would be a 245.
