Yes, they will fit just fine. The fronts should be about .25" shorter than stock and the rear should be about .3" taller than stock, neither of which are a big deal. Also, you can't beat free... and a little extra width can never hurt, especially in the front to help eliminate understeer.

Yep. I'm running 245/35/19 on the front and 285/30/19 in the rears. I'm even lowered in the front with zero issues.

Fracer, Did you not lower the rear because of rubbing issues? I'm lowered on teins also and would like to run 275 30 19 on the rear.

I didn't lower the rear for 3 reasons.
#1- The cars stance is leveled perfectly with the oem rear springs and TEIN front springs. Lowering the rear any will make the back lower than the front and won't look as good. Which is the primary reason lowering spring were installed in the first place... Because the front had a gap between the tire and wheel well and it was higher than the rear.
#2- With the wider 285 tires it's already pretty snug. It's never rubbed and I don't want to take the chance.
#3- Handling and ride is not compromised or degraded at all. The TEIN springs on the front work great with the oem springs in the rear.

The only problems again are camber (much faster tire wear on the inner edge of the front tires) and the front strut/shock wearing out much faster.
