265/30 295/30 AD08s on Stock ZCP?

I'm looking for feedback from anyone who's run the 265/30, 295/30 Yokohama AD08 tires. I just want to make sure they'll work well before ordering them. I'll be running at stock ZCP ride height with the Ground Control camber plates.

I thought I'd try this combo as the tires are a little wider but front and back are only slightly smaller in diameter and are about equally as small.

Thanks!

EDIT: I wanted to update this first post since I purchased and installed these tires. The fit is very nice but, like signes mentioned, I do get some very occasional rubbing in the rear under full compression. They definitely look good though. I haven't had the opportunity to use them in any performance driving yet so I can't speak to that.

I wanted to take some better pictures but this is better than nothing.

I have the AD08's with 275/30/19 in front and 295/30/19 in back.
No rubbing with ZCP on E92 ( camber -2.2 in front ( GC plates) and - 2.0 in back).

I have a square set of 19x10 rear zcp wheels going on all four corners with 275/30 19 tires on stock suspension. I have been told it won't rub....basis this i wouldn't think you would have an issue with the camber plates. I guess you could always add front spacers if you had issues depending on what kind of rubbing you experience.

Do you happen to have any pictures of this setup on your car?

No problem with 265 up front (I run AD08s in 275/30) but for the rear if you are lowered you will rub. FWIW, I am on stock springs/ride height and get rubbing under compression (with -2.0 rear camber). Not that big of a deal but you should know. Also be aware you are changing stock stagger (both diameter and relative width) compared to stock, which was the reason I went with 275/30 front.

Im lowered about 1" all round on coilovers. Does anyone know what the widest you can go without rubbing on front/rear.....looking at the ZCP/AG M359 wheels.

From what I have seen now, if you have an e92 you will get no rubbing with 295/30/19s' in the back, but you will get a little with a e90 (but something you can live with)

Sounds about right. I run a 295/30/19 ad08 out back and rub slightly under higher speed compressions as earlier noted. Was wondering about you guys running 275's up front, anything under full lock? Like parking lot speeds, turns? Currently run 265's but am looking for a bit more front end grip on track but DD the car so wonder how that's affected with the 275's up front. Thx again
