Awesome man, thanks for posting these...was wondering what 19"ers would look like without a drop. That almost closes up the gap to exactly what I like. Not a big fan of slamming them, i like my cars to stay fairly functional.

Now to order some SF71s

You're running a 265/35 and not the 265/30 with no rub? 265/35 is huge. We had customers report rubbing on a 255/30 but it depends on the brand of course.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but OP, was your rear really 265/35/19?
And if so, was there no rubbing at all?

I am looking at getting ET 58 wheels on the rear and want to run 265/35/19 (The speedo is actually already reading reading high- manufacturers incorporate error), so a 35 section tyre should bring me up to actual speed I anticipate.

Sorry, no, they were 265/30/19. However, before I sold the car I installed a set of Continental DWs with a 275/30/19 in the rear on that same setup, and got very minimal rubbing (big dips at high speed). Good luck.

Any chance you can re upload the pictures you originally posted? Doesn't appear to be loading them. Looking to maybe running this aggressive setup but want to see how it looks before.
