What's the widest tire I can put?

I need to know what the widest size tire that I can put on the car is, factoring in that the car will have a 2" drop with 19x8.5 rims.

I would like to go with 245/35/19 but am not sure if this will cause rubbing issues. Thanks guys!

with that set-up go with a 235/35 or 225/35. but you still still have a a slight chance of rubbing with those set-ups on a 2" drop.

if you want to be safe, go with 215/35.
