You can fit a 15mm spacer on a 19x8.5 wheel with +44 offset. If you do that, you will have to roll the rears

With a 19x8, you have an extra .5 inch so that is about 12.5mm

10mm is no problem.. you can even run 15mm and it should not rub

19x8 and 19x8.5 makes a difference

that makes your offset 34mm, you should be fine, i wouldn't go 15mm spacer tho.. might be a bit aggressive.

10 should work without fender rolling.

10-15mm on an 8 with +44 will look fine

Its up to you how aggressive you want your offset

Ditto what BlueE46 said.. plus dont forget you will need longer bolts to allow for the spacer thickness too..

remember 5 mm is roughly 3/8" wider.. do you think you will be able to tell that much difference if you only use on the rear?

Yes that does make a difference.

Make sure its in fact a x8 rim and not a x8.5

Usually 8.5 width rims run 235 rubber

yeah i am running 235 tires
I said check RIM WIDTH... not tire size

Rim width and offset is the most important factor

Rubber size, brand and sidewall shape is only important if you want to slam it and are going to use the ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM offset where every 0.1mm counts
