the rear will be close to touching the shock, front should be okay

the rear tire size is the greatest i'd consider over the stock diameter with with n20/26 power/tq. wide, tall tires may fill the fenderwell however the extra weight, drag, gearing will slow you down. don't need to make the n20/26 slower than they already are. buy the (best) lightest tires you can find. pirelli pz4, continental extremecontact sport, and michelin ps4s. hope you've chosen light wheels as well.

to me, 235/40/19, 265/35/19 is the best fit on 8.5/9.5 staggered set ups

Thanks for the info I'll look into running 265, but are you positive I will be able to clear the strut tower if it's close I'm fine with that I can always throw in a spacer on the rear just worried it won't clear when mounting
