go with atleast a +40 offset with that 8'' wide. don't go lower than that. i dont really know which ones light.

with your car's power, i would buy a 17 inch light weight wheel. with nice beefy tires.

damn, that's heavy.
with that offset. go with 225-35. don't drop too low and you should be fine. just watch out for the pot holes and drive carefully.

i have 19x8.5 +45, my wheels are like 22lbs each, with tires is about 46lb each. for an 8 inch wide wheel, i'd recommend a 40 offset.

that is heavy! BUT.... if you did a little research, before jumping into things, you wouldnt be stuck with them, no what i mean? its like studying before a big test.
volks are the way to go if you want some lightweight 19 inch wheels, but they are $$$

i am slammed on my 19x8, 45 offset, Racing Harts with 235/35/19's and its litterally 1-2 mm from rubbing in the rear. if you get 8 wide, you can go as low as 40 offset IMO, but you will either have to roll your fenders or ride around with mad camber. those were the 2 things i looked into before choosing a size. all that info is here, just gotta search dude.

BTW, you can get a closer look at crispy creme tomarrow see you there

5-120 eh? uhhh ok.....if you say so. iirc you have ACE wheels right?. i think their whole line of wheels are on the heave side. expect to pay at least double for a set of 19 inch light weight. or just get some 18 inch if your more worried about performance

my Racing Harts are 21bs ea, which isnt bad for 19's. with tires, their about 45.8lbs on a digital scale. thats still a pound lighter than my 6spd wheels with tires (46.5), but you cant get around rotational mass.

Bigger wheels won't help you in the long run.

You can sell the tires longside the wheels..

if i can slam my car with no rubbing issues with 19 x 8 45 offset, what makes you think a 48 offset will?

to answer your question, it will work. you will rub if you're slammed.

I was on 19 x 8.5 50+ offset with 245/40/19, so there was a lot of rubber, and I didn't rub at stock height. With a modest drop, you should still be ok.

i'm dumped on tein ss now and have 225/35/19 in the front, 235/35/19 in the rear with rolled fenders and i don't rub. no camber kit.
