Will It Fit?

I currently have been running 265/35/18 up front on 9.5" Volk TE37SL's (et22 no spacers). Ran PSC's last year, and I would like to switch to Toyo R888's. Can I fit an R888 275/35/18 without rubbing? I am at stock ride height. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. So all those square track setups (275/35/18) rub at full lock? Or is it my offset that would cause my tires to rub?

I really don't think that will rub. I am running 275/35/18 on 18x10 ET 25 with absolutely no rubbing on a very square shouldered tire. I don't think 3 less mm are going to cause rubbing, especially on a .5 inch less wide wheel.

yes unfortunately all cars are not made the same... some have issue on full lock rub and some dont... i sure did have that issue before with the same tires...

BUT JUST AN FYI... THE TIRES HE WILL BE USING IS BIGGER THAN OTHER TIRES WITH 275/35...

You should be fine .

I run 275/35-18 Nitto NT01 on 10" ET25 Enkei NT03 wheels. Stock suspension except for GC camber plates up front. No rubbing, except for slight rub at full lock.

What about with a lowered suspension? Anyone try with RDSport suspension?

The issue is the back of the wheel well limits tire OD.
