I know the front offset is +33 on a 19x9, I don't remember the rear offset but I know it's a 19x10. Running 275/35 and 305/30.

For suspension I have FRPP p-springs on Koni STR.T dampers. I love the ride control and the wheels are super light, about 7-10 lbs less per wheel than I had before. It made a noticeable difference, and coupled with the aluminum DS acceleration is wayyyy up.

That's good. Im thinking if I get those dimensions ill get tire rub I have it really lowered with eibach springs and tokico shocks n struts. I'm not sure I talked with some guys at a tire shop and they said if I run 19x10 or 20x10 I would have to roll the fenders. What u think?

I assume you're running an 11+? Or at least an 05+? If you are then you will be fine. With a proper offset you have nothing to worry about as long as you aren't dropping more than 2". Tire height and width play a large role also. But as long as you don't do anything overly aggressive or crazy you'd be fine.

There is a guy on another forum running 20x10 with 305/30's and +48 offset on all four wheels. Only issue he has is a little bit of rubbing when turning the wheel all the way one way, but no issues with the rear

Yea it's been lowered for quite a while, but only 1". I can't lower it anymore because there are some things I still scrape on. I saw that pic after I posted it on here and realized the car looks like it sits a little high

It's the sidewall height on the rear tires that make it look like it sits higher. Too small. Lol

Still look great though! Just wondering how much you lowered bc I lowered too much and tire rubs inside.
