What tire size to use on 19x10.5 +22 ?

I just received my set of te37sl today and debating on what tires to put on the rears, i want to run 295/30/19 but it seems like it will definitely rub from what i've been reading. I am on rd springs currently, has anyone able to eliminate rub with this tire size ? I don't mind a little rub on big dips but constant rub will be out of the question, any input helps, tia.

I had that tire size / wheel with eibach springs. I had ad08's which run wide. I maxed out my negative camber which eliminated rubbing on all but large dips in the road. It can be done but I don't think rubbing can be completely removed with those sizes.

Thanks for the advice, i'm thinking since rd springs drops lower than eibach it might rub even more in my situation, i will def look into doing camber in the rear.

I'm running 285/30 with kw v3 and no rubbing, I recall some folks running 295 and they rub a bit.

I run those size tires in the rear on Eibach springs and have just very minor rubbing on large dips. My ET is +25, though.

I was able to install the wheels today, there is a very slight rub on big dips but this setup with 295/30 hankook evo rears is definitely tolerable, for me at least. I am on fully settled rd springs, here's a quick shitty pic I took before it started to rain. I wanted to put the SL stickers on but they came in red, waiting for the black stickers to arrive next week.

I don't see why it would, if i'm on rd springs and rubs just slightly you should be find with 295 rears on stock suspension, iirc there is a member here running on 305 with zcp suspension with no rub.

That was my exact thought process thanks. If anyone here is on that setup let me know
