    I am getting conflicting info on a 255/40 fitting on this wheel and hitting the arm. Some people say yes and some people say no. This is on a AWD non P. Any insight is appreciated before I spend a lot trying to fit this.

    I personally know it will fit. I have 19x9.5 ET35 with 275/35/19 and they fit with about 3mm clearance. Your 255/40 will be fine.

    If it's too close for your taste a 2 or 3mm spacer will help.

    what’s the maximum spacer (non hub centric) I can use safely? Might need something for the rear.

    Max I would go is 3mm or 4mm. Any thicker than that you can run into threading issues.
