THinking about getting some 19 inch rims, I thought I remember hearing that 19 inch rims with 235/45/19 rims will rub on the wheel well if you take a turn too hard or if you go over a bump.

i dont know if there are any that low, but if u have 19's u will need to go much lower profile then 45..

are u sure these are for ur car, because if they are comin off of an e36 ur fine, if they are comin off like an x5 or something, check and make sure the bolt pattern is the same

18's will rub much less 19's.

If you want a big wheel, plan on rolling your fenders and replacing the springs and shocks with stiffer components.

i wanna do it SOOO bad.. but i dont think that i can drop the back any further without causeing rub... so i am still contemplating my options. i AM gettin the S/C that autotecnica sells.. so that is something else i am waiting for. I expect that the S/C will add some weight to the front thus causeing less wheel gap in the front. so after i get the S/C in i can determine how much of a drop i actually need.

I expect to OWN the S/C in 3 months... and i expect to have it installed within a month after that.

I have 18s on my car (225/40/18) and i have no problem at all with any sort of rubbing, in fact i have room to lower my car when i get the $$$ So if you don't want risk getting 19s because of rubbing issues or go through the trouble of additional mods just to fit the 19s then go wtih 18s, they look just as good to me

Seriously Sabbath, how do you get that ride height? My 17's sit a lot deeper. Wheels look great, but it could sit lower.

I guess I forgot to mention, it also depends on how you drive. I can make my 17's rub if I try hard enogh, and test my limits daily.

What will happen with speedometer when I'll change my 15'' stock tires with my new 17'' wheels? I know the tires will be more slim but will it be exactly the same size?

Thanks!

Henri

Here is a handy handy tire calculator that someone posted before....I'm thinking of gettting 19x8.5's with 235/35/19 tires...the tire calc says they would be 2.5% slower.

When I had my 19x8 inch Konig Tantrums and my Ground Control coilovers all the way down I had no rubbing...When I went to 19x8.5/19x9.5 Axis Super Mesh wheels I had to raise the rear an inch to keep from rubbing..This pic was before I raised the rear.
