^ that would work fine. You could go even lower with the offsets if your looking for a flush appearance.

^ he may need a 30 profile for a 19" rim. 275/265x35 profile is typically for an 18x9.5 rim.

18x9.5 +38 is a perfect offset for rear flush-ness, but the fronts stick out a bit (hence some go staggered fitment).

It's dependent on ride height and camber. I'm at 9.5+33 in the front and it's not flush anymore. It definitely isn't flush in the rear. When I was on MS springs though, the +38 was pretty much perfect in the front and +33 was really close in the rear.

I'm running RP03 18x9.5 +38 with 265x35 all around and my fronts look like they stick out from flush just a bit, with rears perfect flush. But could be my ol' college-era carpenter's eyes.

I'll live with it tho' as I don't like staggered for rotation inability reason.

edit: I'm at stock suspension height and I gauge flush-ness by top dead center of fender exterior.

That sounds just about right. Now if you get springs, you can just get 5mm spacers for the rear and be flush all around with the ability to rotate tires.

OIC- Im running Stance coilovers with a nice drop. the negative camber in the front must being responsible for the flush look that I have.

I also judge the "flushness" by top dead center of the fender.
