Can i go lower with 19" Rims??

I bought 19 inch rims last year. 235 front 265 back(big boys i know). Whenever i hit a bump or on a down hill i would rub just a little bit. The car still looks like it needs to be lower though(i have stock springs)? DO i need to roll my fenders in order to do this? How can i tuck these bad boys in?

with 265s, depending on how low you go you'll need fender work done for sure.

We can always try it this summer, I have those H&R springs that only go down about 1.5"

See how she rides, worst case scenario, get your fenders rolled. I don't think its that expensive.

Oh.. and that bitch is ugly..you can have her

Bring it here, we roll for $50/corner. We setup an E46 sedan on 20x10s, we can handle your little teens.

You gotta role those fenders before you cause more damage than good. It would be a shame. Do it once, do it right.

Also, keep in mind that offest plays a large role.

Don't know why this hasn't been asked yet, but why are you putting a 265mm rear tire on a 320? Sorry to be a dick but you might as well get a bumper sticker that says "poser".

I always wondered that too.

19" rims with 265s on a 320. I would be very surprised if the car even moves. Let alone accelerate.

I'm surprised that you haven't rolled your fenders yet. A sedan has slightly less space than a coupe back there. I run 255's in the summer in the back and I had to roll fenders. Mind you the offset plays a large role in whether you will rub or not as well.
