Hi
I have 19x10.5 rear and 19x9.5 front. I put front tires as 265/35/19 and I am getting some rubbing on full lock should I be worried? Or should I put the 245/35/19 on the front to solve the issue? Oh and my car is lowered by einach springs but stock shocks. Thanks.

What did you end up doing? how bad was the rubbing? did you swap out for a smaller size? reshape the fender liner? or just let it rub?

A little rubbing at full lock isn't going to hurt much. I wouldn't worry about it. Camber won't help. Most people aren't having issues with 255/35/19 tires because they are installed on 9" comp package wheels. The extra width and different offset places the tire in a more favorable position. Adding a spacer on comp package wheels sometimes introduces a slight rub, telling me it is offset dependent. I would consider trying a spacer in your situation or just don't turn your wheel to full lock and move on.

On another note - I don't know why you would want to run a 255 in the rear. I'm all for saving money but I wouldn't go narrower than OEM in the rear to do so.

Hi guys, I ended up putting the original tires 245/35/19 on my new wheels. They look stupid because the wheel lips are exposed but they are not rubbing any more. I think for my next tries, I will go with 255/35. For now, I went with the original tires because they are still almost new. I have attached a few photos. So with these wheels and the 265/35 front not only was I rubbing on full lock, but the tires were rubbing on speed bumps. They were rubbing the top fender. A spacer would definitely have an opposite effect. I do love the vorsteiner wheels.
