No it won't.

for the front you will need a 5mm spacer because the tires will rub on the suspension bolt.

and use 225/35/20 tires

and for the rear use a 5mm spacer because you will rub the inner fender liner. and use 255/30/20 tires.


go with an inexpensive tire like Nankang because they carry these sizes and you'll save money and the tire will last longer than the pricey ones

Absolutely!

I have 8.5 inch wide wheels at the front with a 235/35/19 tyre and the inside of the tyre is about 2mm from the suspension bolt!!

That's probably because your front wheels are 38mm offset. 40mm will hit the bolt and especially with a 235, get a 225 to ensure no issues later, and a 5mm spacer.

If you're not going to breaking the land speed record and you don't drive to hard then yes I would recommend them because they are cheap and last long.

No, they have a 35mm offset.

But good call on the spacer. I may pick some up to be safe.
