Another tire thread

Alright ladies and gentlemen. I know this has bee covered a billion times but I am lazy and don't wanna search around. I got the OK from the better half to pull the trigger on some AMRs. I'm going 20x10 in the rear and wanna know what is the widest tire I can put on there. I also need functionality since she is my dd. I am stock height right now but do have plans on dropping her down later this year. Pics would be awesome too. If ya got'em post'em please. Thanks.

BCs.. Ride good. Rubs just a tad under full throttle and a bad bump. Not enough to worry about though, looks too good to raise up more haha

BC's are coilovers. I'm running a set myself. They cost about a grand and replace the coil springs and struts. Not only do you have the ability to lower or raise your car to what ever specs you want but the struts also have 32 adjustable settings to accommodate your driving style. I'm pretty much on the hardest setting. The other thing I like about them is that the front coilovers come with a camber adjusting pillow ball mount so you won't need a set of camber bolts or plates.

The only down side is that the rear coilovers are not one inline unit. They still utilize the stock spring position and there fore don't allow any type of preload in the rear. But still, not bad for the money.

Quick question, What's the widest tire that will fit on a 19x9.5 rim without bulging?

Ok, the kit I'm going to order comes with those, so I'm good, just didn't know if I could go wider on the back rims. I'm ordering the RTR rims and tires.
