    wheel sizes will i get issues?

    hi all
    thinking of buying some alloys and tyres,but i,m concerned that i might get some rubbing issues
    i have a avant lowered on eibach 50/40 springs

    wheels i am considering are

    Two fronts:19"x 8.5 with 235/35/19 AutoGrip tyres et 38
    Two backs:19"x 9.5 with 255/30/19 Nankang tyres et40

    I'd hope that those sizes will be ok..... cos if that doesnt work for you then i'm screwed haha!

    I'm going with an 8.5F ET32 and a 9.5R ET35 which will be a bit 'pokier' than your set up, and mine will be going on coilovers and as low as possible haha!

    I'm still undecided on what tyre widths / profiles to go with, got a few different options there. I'll most likely be going with something like a nankang as well by the way - as far as 'budget' tyres go, you could do a lot worse. And its not exactly a car I go tearing down B-Roads in so i'm happy enough to make that compromise
