Garage List
Tire width, wheel width, and offset will determine the clearance.

I think s65b40 was running 265/35/19 tires up front with a 19X8.5 Volk TE37 Time Attack (I don't recall the offset).

You should be OK if you have a 9.5" wheel and an offset of about 25. I have 9.5" x 18" wheels with an offset of 22 and run 275/35/18 tires all around with 0 rubbing.
