are you going with gt3's??
Yeah, I think I've finally made up my mind.

SSR GT3's

19 x 8.5 front 235/35/19
19 x 9.5 rear 245/35/19

With et 43 the chances of rubbing with a 245/35 in the rear is exactly the same as running a 19x9 235/35/19 Breyton magic with et 38

I did my calculations: and both the 9.5" GT3 with rubber and 9" Magic with rubber will be exactly 79.5 mm past the mounting surface. (Assuming the tire is centered perfectly in the rim)

The only difference would be a greater overall diameter with a 245/35/19 over a 235/35/19 by 7 mm.

According to Ultimate, I shouldn't rub in the rear with 19x9 magics with a 235/35/19.

I think I found the best deal on the net for SSR GT3:

www.pure-motorsport.com

19x8.5 $553 each
19 x9.5 $583 each

good price.. so 245/235-19 wont rub?
This is what might make a 9.5 SSR GT3 rub over a 19x9 magic

Running a 245/35/19 would increase overall diameter of the wheel. A 245/35/19 is 7 mm larger in diameter than a 235/35/19.

I don't think you would want to run a 235 on a 9.5" rim since 9.5" is 241.3 mm. The rim is 6.3 mm wider than the tire.

Will it rub?
:dunno:

Worst case scenerio...I'll have to take a baseball bat to my rear fenders.

It should be tucked since I ordered the coupe/sedan springs. I don't think it'll rub on the lip of the fender that you'll roll...unless you take a sharp corner at high speed with some body lean. :dunno:

I ordered mine on Dec. 17th and it is still unshipped. I emailed Rob last week and he said they are catching up on the orders, but I haven't gotten any info on mine order since then :dunno: :confused:

Everyday I check my credit card balance to see if the charge has been processed. Nothing. These must be some damn good springs if you have to get in line for 'em. :)
