The 25 series sidewall (26.1") is the right size if you don't want to rub.

Like I said before there are fitment gaps, and sometimes you have to pick a tire size that has the least number of compromises.

There are limits to what you can and cannot do with aftermarket tire sizing.

That's just the way it works.
I understand now. So either I choose the 25 wall and then go with the fatter tires of 295 or 305. OR I go with 255/30 front and 285/30 back with 20" rims(as is the tried and tested case with many ppl correct?) and have a safe compromise of ride quality,over all balance of the car and no rubbing issues.

Have I got it right this time?
