Neither track or street. A setup for canyon roads with somewhat marginal pavement (meaning patched, crack sealed) making softness and wear not a primary concern (actually an advantage). Tramlining would only be an issue on the "to and from", it's not a daily driver.

I just wanted to be sure that the conventional wisdom was I wouldn't have rubbing with the 275/35s and 295/35s front and rear. If these fit that's great because there's also minimal diameter differences from stock which is gravy (speedo and wheel well appearance).
