I am getting new wheels for the V this week. I wanted to know the largest width i can put on the V. I am going with 19's all around. I heard that 19 by 10.5 in the rears and 19 by 9 inch in the front will clear with no problems with rubbing. Please advise...

damn dude, you just put those damn tires on!!!
I am addicted brother...lol You should be happy this is the first non performance mod... lol

19x9 and 19x10.5 with the correct offset ofcourse will fit. Though to be safe I'd recommend a 19x8.5 in the front.
I am getting HRE's. I am putting the order in tomorrow. The whels i am looking to get are either

Make sure HRE can verify the fitment and brake clearance on your rims. I do not recall anyone going wider than 10", so make sure they know what they are doing. I realize HRE is a seasoned vendor, but with the V you want to know this has been done before. Also, ask the recommended tire size, 305 should be easy, 315 is optimal, 325 is probably pushing it, and make sure none of these sizes extend beyond the rear quarter.
Regarding the fronts, CCW never recommended the 19 X 9, always the 19 X 8.5, I think the Mallet wheels come in that size, but not sure how this was done.
