Can I go wider than a 235 in the rear with:
19x9 Breyton Magics on a sedan with H&R Race springs?

I want to run 255's in the rear. I don't mind rolling my fenders. If 255's will fit, would I need to go with a 255/30/19?

Thanks!!

If I remember correctly, a 9" wide wheel with an offset of 40 will allow you to run 255 in the rear.

Hopefully, someone can confirm this.

I had the 19x9's with 235's front and rear...I wish I had done 245 front and 255 rear or just 245 all the way around. But with 235 in the rear I had it slammed so the metal of the wheel on the top was under the fender with no rubbing.

Do the Magics all have the same offset? Mine is 38. I thought I heard they make a 35 as well. Maybe that is only for 18's?!?!

Anyway, thanks Mike!! I think I will go with 235 in the front and 255 in the rear.

If you roll your fenders, you should be fine...

I have 18x9 rears with +40 offset and 265's, and they rubbed a little with a full load on stock sport suspension. After rolling, they haven't rubbed at all.

Breyton offers the Magics in 38 and 48 offsets for 19x9.
