Hey guys, I wanted you guys to help me out with this one. I need as much feedback and information as i can get to help me out.

If some of you remember, i wreck my car against a mustang, and turned my z into a project. I have already spend $4,565 on the car. Including custom made headers in mexico from a mufler/welding shop, body work, new suspension with airbags!, custom made ramair intake, new and slightly resized pistons, magnaflow muffler, bigger TB, a crane cam, and new fenders. And i still have lots more stuff to get.

What i wanna know is would 19x7.5 rims fit my car? The tires would be 215/35/r19. What do you think of these sizes and if they would fit with no prob or what? I have airbags so i can lift and drop the car at will, but i am talking about width and all that. And also please help me out with a new color for my car, for i need a paint job.

Here are the rims and will post pics of my engine later.

I used to sell rims at a shop and we did 19's on a cavalier. You have to remove the plastic splashguard in the front wheelwell. and shave the inner fender lip on the rear. it is on the innerside of the fender flare.This will keep the 7.5 rim from rubbing the tire on the lip when you hit a bump. Check the offset of the wheel you are getting and make sure it is a 5/100mm bolt pattern

Well, with the tiresize that you have, the overall diameter is practically the same, so that isn't an issue. Maybe the 7.5" width wouldn't be a problem, since you are only getting 215 tires. I guess what could cause the problem is the wheel offset, which could cause the wheel to stick out too much if it isn't correct. Not sure what the correct offset for a 19" wheel on a Cav would be, though.
