I just got a set of VB3's 19x9.5 et22, and 19x8.5 et40...I want to run a 25mm spacer up front making it 8.5 et15.
My question is can i fit it running a 215/35 without flaring the front fender. id rather not run a 205.

Any feedback would be great, thanks mike

Im running right now square 18x9 et27 m3 rears with a 215/40 in the front with no rubbing, but dont know if the et13 will be to much without a flare...

current 18x9 et27 w/ 215/35
going 19x8.5 et15 w/ 215/35
8.5" tucks in 1/4" less that than 9" thats say 7mm. et27-et15=12mm
12mm(offset difference) - 7mm (difference in rim width) = 5mm

the 19s will poke out 5mm more, figure with the 8.5 rim it may not stretch as much. and a taller 19" diameter wheel puts the rubber closer to the fender.

it may work with a fender roll. but dont be shocked if u need a lil camber. GL, id try it, even if it rubs it shouldnt be too much if you stick with the same tire brand and type.
