Exclamation 19" wheels on an 89XR7..clearance????

I did the good newbie thing and searched on this forum & others and cant find anything!

I am looking at a set of 19" wheels to possibly put on my 89 XR7....here are the rim/tire details....

19"wheels (yes 5x108mm bolt patt.)....2 are 8.5 wide with 255/40s 2 are 10" wide with 275/40s. front are 35 offset rear are 38 offset.....

my car has completely stock suspention.....I just want to make sure there are not going to be any clearance issues with swaybars...control arms and whatever else...I know if I lower the car in the spring I am sure I will be doing some fender rolling....

any imput will be appriciated.....normally I wouldnt ask questions like this, but I have never run anything bigger than an 18x11...and that was on my stang.

All the ponies below are located at my ranch in INDIANA if anyone wants to go for a ride...haha
1989 XR7 SC 5-speed

If those specs are correct you will be fine. The 10" rear will be at the limit. You will need to either roll fenders or put some airbag helpers in the rear springs to keep them from rubbin lowered or not its gonna be a problem.

Enjoy the new setup
