No problem

Bear in mind, these wheels are 10" in the rear. I was told, incorrectly, by the vendor that a 275 rear was perfect. Turns out, there a little narrow for the wheel. So, there's a little stretch here.

Of course, as we all know, PSS's don't come in the right profiles for a 285 width. So, I'd have to go to a 295 to fix the stretch…

If you look at the diameter differences for stock size and GTS sizes the front are actually larger. As such 275/30/ is actually more appropriate than 35. Moreover the 35 in the rear will actually be larger in diameter than stock and hurt acceleration.

Did the same and could not agree more!
