Rubbing issues and Tire size 2011 F25

Need help!

I will be mounting Style 309s to my 2011 F25. I was taking some measurements to figure out the widest/tallest tire I could mount, and still have some wheel well liner clearance w/o rubbing.

1. on my Style 306s, which are 17x8 and have 245/55r17 tires, My left front tire's left shoulder, at full lock right, appears to be closer to front part of wheel well liner, than right front tire's right shoulder, at full lock left, appears to be.

This might be a camber/toe issue? Or liner might be warped?

Has anyone had rubbing issues?


2. Is anyone running 255/50r19s,

or 255/45r19 such as

I'd really like to get the new michelins because their wet traction is supposed to be great, but am afraid that I might cause rubbing issues/damage/safety concerns if they do contact the well liner.

Any help/advice/pics would be great.
