a quick "will it rub question" ....

thinking about throwing some spacers, 10mm, to be exact on my wheels

the current wheel size and offset is 19x9 @ 25 w a 255 tire

after the spacer.... 19x9@ 15

will it clear? will it rub?


Any help will be much appreciated.

thanks

Are you lowered? What are the camber specs? Most likely not, but more factors are involved.

I am quite sure that you can run the set up without rubbing, although not 100%.
we have done the same with 19 - 9.0 et15 245/35-19 and it did not rub.

the combination of 255 and V12 is a little tough but i think that you can run it.
if you were close by, you could always come by and we can throw a 10MM on it to test

hm tough one man..

let me share my experience...

i have a 9" 19 inch wheel with 13 offset

When i put 245/35 yoko ad08s on kws on lowest setting it rubbing the fender liner.

When i put 255/35/19 ps2 it rubbed my fender liner.

I honestly suggest you get like a 5-8mm MAX and be on the safe kind. Keep in mind fender is plastic.
