I wanted to see how it would look with a beefier tire in the back... I'm probably going to try a 285/30 next.

Can you go wider? Like maybe 265 fronts and 295 or 305 rear? Any issues with rubbing? Can you take more photos?! I'm pondering if I should get myself a set.

I think you'll run into rubbing issues if you go wider especially in the rear. I was already rubbing with a 285 and had to do fender work and cutting of the wheel well covers to get them to clear. Nothing major but just enough to get a couple more mm of clearance now I have no rubbing issues at all.
