Was the rubbing present with your track wheels or stock, and what's the width difference?

I'm hoping to get them installed next week, but I have to find a day to get it done. It's been a busy 2 weeks for me.
The rubbing is occurring with the stock 18" wheels. I believe that the offset is the same for the 18" and 19" so I would anticipate some rubbing with the 19" as well, unless you run narrower tires.

Although there does seem to be people running 15mm spacers in the rear around here, I would be careful. You may try to put them on and drive around a bit. The slight rubbing that I got did not cause any damage to the car, but it was noticeable on the outter edge of the tires.

Let me know how it goes.
