What will fit under a sedan with and without rolling the fenders.

Currently, with the zhp setup I am running:

Front: 225/40-18

Rear: 255/35-18

I am going to 19's in the spring. I'd like a deep lip.

Can I fit wider on the rear?

What roll does offset play?

Thanks.

The maximum fitment in 19" is 235/35R19 and 265/30R19, although in some cases this might need a fender lip roll on the rear to fit. There is no one magic number that anyone can say always fits in 19", as most are borderline fitments. I'd suggest getting your lips rolled first to avoid any/most fitment issues.

Thanks Gary.

I am a little hesitant to roll the fender as the car is a lease but, I do doubt they'd notice. Or would they?

Just a thought here... Why spend $2000 to $3000 for new wheels and tires on a leased car... Don't you have to put back on the old wheels at the end of the lease, unless you are going to buy the car at the end of the lease....

a good point.

my gut instinct is ... i am going to buy the car.

my bail out is after 3 years of use I can sell them :D
