Are you? You answered half of my two questions (what is it rubbing, not what kind of tires you're talking about), then I ask a follow up question and you think you've already answered it. Why don't you quote where you answered my last question.

There are two places in a fender where wheels rub from turning...up front with the outside of the tire or in the back with the inside of the tire. Once can be fixed with spacers and one can't.

Donkey.

Forget it....I don't have the problem. Who knows if the OP even does.

Relax guys - thanks for everyone's input. I hope to god i don't have this problem - it seems *MOST* people are fine with this setup. Let's hope that's the same for me! They should be on in a couple hours...we will see.

tibra1 answered the question the best he could by saying some have rubbing issues, some do not. No two cars have the exact same build tolerances, especially the plastic inner liners. I'm running 255 PSS on the front of my e92 M3 and I do not rub at full lock. I've heard of people that have rubbed with 265 but others that have not with 275 so until you try it yourself you'll never know whether the front will rub at full lock.

OP - good luck!

I think his possible rub will be because he wants to run a 255/35. Some suggested 265 but it would be a 265/30.................Phil

Maybe you did answer the question. I guess my 5 year old education doesn't allow me to account for your inability to punctuate like a grown up.

I can only read what you write, not what you're thinking.

Hey guys,

So just wanted to report back - got four new tires installed that day. No rubbing, even at full turn. They feel great and I love the way the car rides. Attached some photos. Thanks everyone for your help - it was much appreciated!

My bald tires!


Road Force Balancing!


Took an opportunity to snap a picture of the underside


End result
