I drive an 07 aero, stock suspension.
Looking at getting a set of 19x8 wheels with an et+50
the tires are 245 35 19, which seem a little wide to me for the wheel.

Will I have issues running these with stock suspension? Or will I need spacers?
Also would there be issues with lower springs?

Thanks

I think you will have rubbing issues with a 245mm wide tire. I have seen a few cars with 235s, but that's often pushing it.

I agree 8 inches wide at +50 will be tough. The offset will be crucial if there is any way 245s are going to work.

My math could be wrong.. Stock wheels come 17x7.5 with a +49 offset... new wheels are 19x8 +50 offset.. which puts the center of the wheels in almost the exact same spot.. +- 1mm

which means that the new wheels would only be bigger by .25 inch on the strut and fender sides.. doesn't seem to be too much at all.. the 245's will have to be changes out, but again my stockers were 235's; which, if my math is correct makes the new wheels bigger by 1cm on both strut and fender sides..

Am i forgetting anything?
