Malek, thank you for the pics and the pm. Now THAT is what I call flush, exactly what I am going for. It didn't work out with the ps2 replacement I ordered (it was a good deal at 40% off retail, slightly used), so I am literally going back and forth between just buying another ps2 replacement, getting all four hankooks in the same size I have right now, or going with the 255/275 vred setup. It is kind of sad that the one ps2 is like more than 50% of the cost for all four of the other two options.
If the vreds came in 285/30/19, I wouldn't even think twice. Do you think if I went with the taller 275/35 vred that I would rub out back with a 10mm spacer?
Dave- I currently have the same setup as you -255 front and 285 rear. I am running a 12/5 spacer setup, and there is definitely more room in the front and rear. How much room, I don't know (but it seems like Malek answered that question). I am going to try the 10mm spacer in the back as soon as I get some free time (unless I replace the tires before then). But from what I can tell, 10mm should be no problem.
