Should be fine if the wheels are around +35 offset. 255-40-19 would be close to the same overall dimensions as the 255-45-18 I have on my SC with Eibachs. Slight rub on the front the odd time, and I have air bags in the rear coils to help keep the fender lips off the tires when the car is loaded up with stuff.

Here they are on my lowered SC w/Eibach 1.5 springs. These are the ADR X-Factors...I still have a few sets of these.

Like Ed said...Just a lil rub on the front fender skirt...
