I don't know about you but I'm getting 19x8.5 front and 19x10 rear both with a 35 offset. It should close the gap pretty tight.

An addition to that i'm dropping the front 1" and the rear 1.6" give or take.

Ok thanks for the help, that's what I'm trying to do is close the gap real tight but I don't want to lower my car.

I saw you said you weren't trying to lower the car, but if it helps I have mine lowered 1.5" and I have 245's with plenty of room, so if you aren't lowering you should be able to go 10" rim and easily 295's I would think

...depending on the offset, and backspacing

Of course I agree! that would all have to be figured out. I can easily put a 275 on mine stock, no offset with it lowered. I tried it with one of my buddies wheel/tire. just depends on what your offsets are and of course your back spacing. I always wanted to go staggered but didn't like the idea of nothing being rotational haha

rotation is overrated, lol

I personally love the staggered look, it gives it that stance!!!

Haha it's not over rated when you're still in college and have to pay for it all.

But I personally do too, one day I'll have a staggered set to make it's stance look even better!
