19" LM 19x9.5/19x11-tire size-offset help!

Hey guys i have a few questions about my application that i may need some help on regarding tire size and wheel offset. I am ordering a set of BBS LM's and want to know if the size i want will be OK or to wide.

front 19x9.5 +34 or +20

rear 19x11 +25

as for the tires, Ive been jamming my calculator to figure out which size will be best for me. first off i want to have a low possibility of rubbing. 2nd, i plan on lowering with GC. 3rd i am getting PSS's

i think front should be 255/35 and rear 295/30 but am up for suggestion from others that have run lesser sidewall in the front ETC. perhaps 265/30 in the front will be better?? im not sure! please help me decide. again i dont want to rub but may have to increase my offset in the front from 20-34... ??

Thank you its been driving me crazy.

Make another thread with BBS LM in the title. The resident LM experts in the forum will more likely chime in.

How about you check this thread that has tons of info on various wheel offsets, tire sizes, and rubbing? It's a sticky on the wheel and tire sub-forum.

I run 19x9.5 et20 up front with 275/30 and 19x11 et25 in the rear with 295/30. I am sitting pretty low and I only get an occasional rub, ever so slight, in the rear with the car is weighed down and there is a large bump in the road. Hope that helps.

ok, similar of what im doing but those are pretty wide in the front. i was thinking 265/30 front 285-295/30 rear? that would probably illiminate a chance of the dreaded RUB. Thank you! anyone else care to share?

9.4 et 34 is too conservative. 9.5 et 20 is aggressive but it will work. You will need to add some camber in the front to make it look good with 275/30's in the front. 255/35's will be stretched on 9.5" wheels but they will work and you might not need to add camber. I'm not a big fan of 265/30 because the sidewall is smaller than I would want. I would go with the 9.5 et20 wheels with 275/30 tires and have the camber adjusted front and rear. I would run 295/30 in the rear but you may have some slight rubbing. See the link I posted earlier to see what people have done to deal with the rub.
