Anyone running 245/40/19 rear tires on sedan?

I will be rolling my fenders, and I am curious if the 40 sidewall will be too tall. I am on stock sport suspension and will be doing springs or co's. thanks guys!!!

245/40's will be very tall. Rubbing issues are definitely going to occur during compression or a full cabin of passengers. I recommend a 245/35 for the rears.

Should be 245/35R19 or even 245/30R19. 40 aspect ratio is insane
