I lower AV6 by Tein SS & SPC camber kit, please check out the pictures for my rear wheel, the top of the tire is now actually got covered by the fender with no rubbing.
and now, I am planning to get:
19" x 8
235/35/R19

What is the minimum offset I should have to avoid rubbing?
or should I go for 225/35/R19?
or even 19" x 7.5 with 225? :confused:

Thanks

You will rub...I suggest u Roll your fender a little bit. I have 235/35/19 and had no rubbing problems until I got my rear SPC camber kit on and adjusted. Its not that hard to roll your fender slightly. Only bad part is that some of you fender paint will chip, but can be fixed with some touch up paint. After rolling your fenders you wont rub unless you let ppl ride in your back seat or you hit a big pothole.

instead of rolling, cut the fender its better no worries about paint chip.

Also theres a member on here forgot his name but he has 19x8 with a 40mm offset slamed on tien basics no rub.

19x 7.5 shouldn't rub
but 19x8 will rub
I know for a fact b/c thats what I got. It will rub if you use your camber kit. It will not rub if your camber is all f'ed up. Thats why that one guy is probalby not rubbing b/c he doesn't have a camber kit.

Check the tire "load rating".

My experience has been, the 225's below 45% sidewall are not easy to find in a load rating of "90" or above, unless you want a 15000 mile tire.

I have come accross many at 88, which from what I understand the 88 load rating tire is designed to only support 1235 pounds at MAX pressure. The autotragic comes with 91 and 6spd with 93 standard.

The gross front axel weight for the V6's is near 2400 pounds. That is too close, imo, considering the pot holes here in Houston and several hundred dollars a wheel.

Has anyone had issues with lesser load rated tires than factory?

Thanks for all your responses, ;)
I think I am still concerning, when I get to tirerack.com and pick 19x7.5 rims,
they suggested me to use a tire 225/40/19.
Actually, to get my ODO reading correct, should I go for 225/35/19 or 225/40/19?

Hongda, are you sure 19x8 w/ 45-50mm offset and 235/35/19 tires could fit on my car? That's why I was looking for, but it seems that I have to cut / roll the fender by using this setup. Thanks :)

Also, thanks for your info, WildcatMike :)

Trust me you will rub. Unless my car was made different then yours which is highly unlikely. Most people dont have camber kits installed on there car so of course they wont rub. Without your camber kit, your wheel is gonna lean inwards so no rubbing issues. But with camber kit installed and adjusted your wheel is gonna come back out so it will rub. I have 19x8 with +45 offset rims and I rub in the beginning before i rolled my fenders a little bit. You dont have to completely roll your fenders, but only a little bit where your fender is gonna stick up instead of downwards.

Well, to be on the safe side get 48 or 50mm offset.

48 and 45 mm is not to much of a def. if you rub with 45 you'll most likely rub with 48, what i say is just get the wheels installed i mean if you rub or not its nto gonna change your mind right, so get your wheels and if you have to roll your fender its not big deal.

and go with 235/35/19 rims size 19x8.
