    I'm not sure what offset width ,tyre size to go for, I don't want any issues with them.rubbing etc and want them to sit nicely with the arches, the car will soon be lowered on some 50/40 ap/waited springs.
    can anyone help
    Thanks

    From the reasreach I've done so far, the best answer I can find is ET35 (achieved with spacers if wheels are not the right offset), and in 19" 8,5j with 235/35/19 will give no rubbing on the arches etc. The drop will sit just right on the wheels too.

    Not sure on that one... sounds a bit wide unless you're going to go for quite a stretch on the tyres. BigRich has a big drop but only has 215 tyres... not even sure they'd stretch that far on a 9.5j safely... I'll let one of the other guys answer this one...
