I'm very glad I chose 19's over 18's! They fill the archs nicely
19x8.5 et38 235 35 19 kumho ku31
19x9.5 et43 265 30 19 kumho ku31

Slight rubbing on rears with full trunk and speed humps

Do you mind deleting the photoshop for now? I think it would make sense that we don't want photoshops in this thread lol

You should either raise the front or lower the rear, by a hair

i rebuilt the fronts to a more aggressive spec over the winter. and will be running some 265/30 stretch on the rears so i can sit nice and low. it was hard to go much lower on the 285's. It would rub everywhere.
