    As mentioned above, 265/40R19 would be a good compromise size if you like the tire diameter large enough to help fill the fender openings.

    I've been searching the web I see quite a few guys running the 275 40 with no rubbing on lowered cars.

    Good to know ... keep in mind that wheel offset and the amount of suspension drop come in to play when you're trying to max things out. Make sure you're comparing apples to apples before spending your dough!

    you don't hear much talk about negative camber - there was a time when most cars had negative camber - most people today think in terms of positive camber but with a wider tire choice negative camber can make it work better overall rubbing or no rubbing...

    I was just about to make a post asking a similar question, I have a 2014 v6 Manuel, Stock size is 225/60/r17 , what would be an ideal upgrade for myself? Can i just go straight to 18's with a lower profile?
