I drive a 2007 Dark Cherry Red Limited and just bought 19" X 8 TSW Silverstone Rims. Does anyone have any recommendations on what size tires to buy? i have to choose from...
225/40-19
235/35-19
235/40-19
245/35-19
OEM tire size is 225/50-17
I want to go with the 245/35-19 but am concerned with tire rubbing....
Thanks to anyone who can help

Your wheel offset would play a big role in if you will have rubbing or not.

We show an ideal fitment in our fitment guide as being 19x8.0 +45 with a 245/40R-19 tire.

Give us a call if we can be of assistance.

225/40/19 is actually most similar to the factory diameter of the 17 limited. I have a limited as well 09 transformed. 225/45/19 is a bit taller and if you're not looking to lower the car it would be a perfect size. Will fill the fender well and it won't rub if the wheels has less the +35 offset. If your wheels are any where near +35 and running a 245 will ecationally hit the rear fender lip but some one who know how to roll a fender can easily take care of that! If you're in Fort Lauderdale area I'd be able to help you.

Sorry didnt see the lowering part.. Then best bet is 235/40/19!!! Kinda of a odd size when comes tire selection but since you are running the same suite all the way around it is the perfect size. It will help you fill the fenders just right with out having to go very low and just skinny enough to not have rub issues and wide enough to not make the car drive weird and loose fuel Eco... I have a set of gen coupe 19 and I'm running 235/40/19 with a 5mm spacer it's getting lowered next week with SE shock n struts and springs. Let me know if you have any more questions
