What's Better?

If I'm running wheels with these specs: 19x9.5F et+22, 19x10.5R et+25 and front tire(PS2) specs of 265/35/19 what size rear tire do you guys think is better, (aesthetically and fitmently): 285/35 or 295/30? I believe PS2's run wide w/a round sidewall. I guess what I'm asking is since I'm running 265/35 up front(more rubber) will running 295/30 in the rear look equivalent to the fronts in terms of amount of rubber? And how will the fitment be? Keep in mind, 285/30 rear tires looks a bit skinny to me.

Wow!! This is a first. No recommendations?? Is it just not interesting because its been talked about so much? Or, is the question not understandable?

Your fronts are going to rub on the inner fender when you turn close to full lock. 255/35 would be a better choice in front. I'd run the 285/35 in back.

Doesn't the GTS use 285/30 out back?
I would go 265/30 front and 295/30 out back, with max camber front and back.

Finally!!!!

265/35 up front is perfect. No rubbing, clears perfectly. I was just hoping that the wideness of the 295/30 would compensate a bit for the thinness of the 30's since PS2's have a more rounded sidewall. Does that make any sense?? I'm a little afraid of clearance issues with a 285/35. Anyone have pictures of what a 285/35/19 PS2 mounted on a 10.5 inch wheel looks like???

I'm surprised the 265/35 isn't rubbing your inner fender liners at full lock. Are you sure you checked that? I had 285/35/19s mounted on a 10.5:







I ended up not liking them and swapped to a 295/30/19 in the back. You will be VERY close to rubbing with that setup though.

Yea, the 265/35's in the front is super close but doesn't rub. What did you not like about the 285/35's in the back?? I don't like how the 285/30 look so skinny in the back compared to the 265/35 in the front. Thanks for the feedback everyone!!

we usually run 265/30-19 and 295/30-19 combo.
We find that with a drop and with some tire brands, the 265/35 rubs a little.
Also, the 285/35-19 seems a little too big (overall diameter).

I have 19x10 ET20 w/ 285/35 and it rubs on the plastic near the tip of the rear bumper. Go for 295/30...

285/35/19...done. No rubbing whatsoever. Offset not as aggressive as your et+20 tho. The wheels have a et+25 offset. So for those that are wondering, 265/35/19 works w/Front@9.5 et+22 and 285/35/19 works w/Rear@10.5 et+25. No rubbing at all!!! Thanks for everyones input. I'll try to post some pics of my buddies car.

And what tires you running to make it not rub?

I thought about going 285/35/19 RE-11's in the rear with 10" +20 but figured it would be too close and a gamble for it to rub.

I went 295/30 in the rear, I may go 265 or 275/30 in the front when my 245/35's wear out.

I couldn't agree w/you more. 285/35/19 is a little big (.6 more then stock overall diameter) and mos def w/certain offsets and tire brand combos, 265/35 and 285/35 will rub a little. Fortunately, PS2's have a more rounded sidewall which allows for better fitment using above mentioned tire sizes. Other brands will have a more square sidewall. Moral of the story is, in order to find the perfect set of tires w/proper fitment, you need to know your offsets, know the tire that you want(tire specs not just specific size), and know what look you are trying to achieve w/tires(more or less rubber). Did I miss anything? That's probably the umteenth time this has been stated but what's one more time gonna hurt?

PS2's are what I'm running. I believe RE-11's have a more square sidewall? Not 100% sure tho. You're right about it rubbing tho. Definitely would have rubbed w/the aggressive +20 offset and RE-11 combo. Not so sure about 275/30 in front. Too wide, maybe.
