Anybody tried 19 wheels on BRZ with factory springs/shocks?

Definitely going to have a new set of autocross wheels for the BRZ in 2016. 18s are cool, but has anyone tried 7 inch wide 19s on factory suspension? Any clearance issues?

Thanks in advance!

Wait what?
You want to with a bigger and heavy wheel for autox? Are there lighter 19" wheels than 17" or 18"?

I'm curious what you're trying to achieve, other than spending more money, having more rotating mass, and getting kicked into STX with narrow wheels... (Unless there was an 18" option on the BRZ I'm not aware of).

Are there even 19x7 wheels available?

Seems like a complete waste. Likely have a hard time finding decent wheels in that fitment, and worse time finding tires.

Yeah you can get 19x7 wheels and tires to match. I just wanted to know if anyone's had clearance issues.

At 19x7 your offset and tire would dictate if it fits or not. Look at a tire size calculator. If you have 215-245 width and 30series tires you should be fine.
