That's great news. Thank you for your reply. I've tried the 219 Style 9,5 rim with 265/40 in the front, but it is really a tight fit and I wasn't sure how it will look like with the 265/35 tire.

I know that you need at least a 5mm spacer with KW Clubsport. I was planning to get an AP 378mm BBK for the front first, and next year a new suspension. The stock brakes are OK, but the pad wear is quite high. As far as I understood the 9,5 stock wheel clears the brakes without spacer, so this will be a great solution for next season.
