Will I have any trouble running 19x9" wheels +42 offset all around?

I dont think the back should have any issues, but with such a high offset, I was worried about brake clearance up front.

I plan on lowering with Eibach Pro-kits.

What would the ideal tire size be? I'm running the factory, non Track wheels now, 18x8 up front 18x8.5 in the rear, I believe 35 offset all around.

Thanks in advance.

BtW I know this isn't the ideal setup of wheel, but I'm getting them for free, and they're better than the stock 18's in terms of looks... so just trying to figure out if it'll work.

I wouldn't pay money for this setup since its obviously less than ideal.

I'm almost certain you'll be hitting your strut in front. I have 9.5et25's, and dry mounted they are super close to the strut, have to wait for tire install to see if they hit when the suspension is loaded. With 9et42, you are essentially sitting at 9.5et36, so you are 11mm closer to the strut than I am, and I would venture I have 3-5mm of clearance:



To make them work you'd need to invest in some serious spacers, like 20mm front and 25mm rear, and when you lower you'd need even bigger spacers, at which point you may as well invest in new wheels altogether...

EDIT1:But, if you're getting the wheels for free, then take them, test bolt them, realize they don't fit, and sell them on craigslist for profit. Free money!

EDIT2: Stock non-track are 7.5 front and 8 rear. Stock track are 8 front and 8.5 rear.

Well I can get whatever tire sizes I need. and I'm not opposed to stretching or spacing.

If I were to stretch the tire a bit for fender clearance, could I get away with 25mm all around?

I guess I should say, what would be ideal for the front, after lowering? 20mm? or 25mm?

And, will the 25mm be sufficent?

What tire sizes would be best (mild stretch allowed) to fit with out any rubbing issues?

I ask beacuse I have a set of 25mm spacers collecting dust, wouldn't mind obtaining another 25mm set.

First off you have the wrong info for stock 18" wheels > they are:
F 18x7.5 E33 and R 18x8.0 E33
Stock 19" are F 19x8 E35 and R 19x8.5 E35
Since the rims are free and you like them, you should see how they look.
Jack up the front wheel and put the rim on to check clearance.
Next put your 25mm spacer in to see how far it comes out.
Next jack up the back and do the same thing.

I think you will need a 20mm spacer front and a 25mm spacer rear.
Tires F 235/35/19 R 255/35/19
For more stretch use F 225/40/19 and R 245/40/19
These specs will look good with the Eibach Pro-kit and some -camber.
:hello:
