Steve,

Thank you for the wonderful wheel fitment resource. I understand that it isn't "exact" because of the small differences in rim and tire sizes that exist between manufacturers. Never the less, I hope you can help me.

According to your chart, both 18x9 or 19x9 front rims(+45 offset)with 245/35/18-19's respectively will rub the inner fender well (with eibach's, AGX's, TRD's). This makes me nervous. I have the 19" fitment mentioned above. I have seen both of the above fitments on MKIV's, and no one has mentioned any rubbing. Is it constant rubbing or only at the limits of steering? Is it a game of chance?

I have Advan rims with Bridgestone SO-3's.

I will appreciate any feedback.

Thanks!

Just to let you know that Steve is out of town and though i'm not sure but i think he wouldn't be back until early next week.However i have 265/30 on 18x9.5 with 45 mm ofset on the front and even i don't have any rubbing issues so your wheels with smaller size and same offset shouldn't have any issues as far as i could think.

A 245/35R19 may not rub at all, but it is a tall tire. If it rubs, it will only rub under extreme conditions. Such as a very high cornering load, hitting a large bump (such as turning in a driveway too fast), or both. A 265/30R19 or 255/30R19 is a better fitment with your wheel size and offset. The 245/35R19 is 25.8" tall vs. the stock height of 25.3". The 255/30R19 is 25.0" and the 265/30R19 is 25.3" tall. The 255/30 and 265/30 give you more cornering grip, more grip for braking, better looks (just an opinion), and more fender well clearance.

Later, Steve
