Got the new wheels and tires installed today. Without a doubt, a 19x8.5 +35 will rub on the driver's side rear. A lot. I have rub marks on the sidewall of the rear driver's side tire with a 19x8 +35. Going to raise the rear a bit tomorrow.
Paper is about 0.004" or 0.1 mm thick. If you have a set of calipers around, set it to 0.7mm and you will see how big 0.7mm, which is probably bigger than you're imagining.talked to my local Discount Tire store manager today about package pricing. He seems pretty with it, but he balked at the idea of putting a 5x114.3 wheel on a 5x115 car like my diesel. I showed him the pictures I posted and he seemed better about the idea, but not sold 100%.
Am I correct that the 7/10ths of 1 millimeter over 4.5" spread is insignificant? If memory serves, most paper is 3 mm thick, so the difference we're talking about is approximately 1/4 the thickness a piece of paper. Essentially no difference, imo.
