I currently have stock suspension. I was wondering if 19x9.5 45 would fit up front with no rubbing since I've been having some conflicting info. I really want to run squared but want bigger than 8.5 with no rub.
I thought 19x9.5 +45 could be ran square with a 275/35/19 tire? It seems it's 50/50 if you need a small spacer up front to clear the strut with the tire (3mm-5mm). Also depends on tire brand and width.
I put a 18x9.5 +45 V710 with 275/40/18 Conti DWS on the car for a few seconds to check fitment. It did indeed rub the front strut, but I think a spacer would cure that. I didn't have one on me though. .
I can say, I run 18x9 +42 up front now. 275/40/18 was about 3mm from rubbing, which I didn't like, so I change to a 265/40/18 and now have a little more space.
I know that with the Michelin Pilot SS the rear tire warranty is cut in half if you are running staggered sizes. Not sure if this is true with all brands, but it's something else to think about.
* Mileage Warranty Exceptions
Split fitments - If your vehicle has tires of different sizes on the front versus the rear axles, your tires cannot be rotated as recommended. Therefore, the mileage warranty on each rear tire will cover half the number of miles as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire line.
I have done it before with some customers and its very much doable. It does depend on the suspension system and tires, but a 3-5mm spacer will fix most clearance issues. Here are a few pics of the Avant Garde M310 in 19x9.5 et.43 all around on 275s.
