    Car is coming in 5 weeks (3D) and trying to figure out wheel setup. Wheels are here 19x8.5 with a +30 offset. Wanted to go with 235 tires squared for efficiency/minimal drag and to rotate tires. Also want rubber flush or as close to flush without rubbing. I plan on lowering the car 1-1.5 inches once springs are available for the awd. Should I opt for wider 245’s to get it flush or should I keep the 235’s and put slip-on 3mm (or even 5mm) spacers?
