What 305 are you going with. You will be very close to rubbing if not rubbing with a 305 in the back. There was a guy on here with 295/30s rub in the back on Volks. Mine barely don't rub in the back.

I plan to use MPSC. I thought people have been using this size w/o issue. My car is not lowered. Will I run into problems?

I would check the section width of that tire. I have a feeling even without lowering you might rub in the back when the suspension compresses. I know that KINGLEH had to roll his rear fenders to keep his 295/30 PS2s from rubbing on Volks.

Anyone here run 275's up front, particularly with a square tire like the Yokohama AD08?

I'm going to be running 275/30/19 AD08's up front with 19x9" +22. Anyone think I'll run into rubbing issues in the front because the tire is so square?


I have 295/30/19 19x10" +20 in the rear currently with AD08's and I did rub for a good couple weeks until the plastic part on the fender rubbed off and now everything is okay. Just got me worried because it's very noticeable how square the AD08's are.

I run a 275 in the front with an NTO5 and I need to run a 3mm spacer because the tires' lip protector tiny edge just barely rubs the springs on the coilovers at full lock.

So it would give me a good idea that a square tire like an AD08 (Damn them and not making proper sizes for me) would rub as well in the front at that size

Check tirerack. They make 265/30, 275/30, 295/30 --- 19"


Panda, so I would for sure NEED spacers? I really prefer no spacers, plus I'm afraid I add spacers I may just end up rubbing/hitting the fender.


I would go 265/30, but since my car does not have coilovers and is just lowered on Eibach it's going to have way more wheel gap than a 245/35 or even 275/30.

Maybe I'll just live with it and stay 245 front, 295 rear? I mean it does grip and turn I need to, it's just the steering feels more numb but it does turn when I ask it to..

What's your guys input?

Stay 245's

Go 255's and rub on full lock until the treads about 50-60%

Go 265's and have massive wheel gap

Go 275's and maybe run spacers with the risk of getting wheel vibration/shimmy

The wheel gap with 265/30 AD08 and Eibachs is pretty darn close to stock ride height "looking"

Keep your current tires and wear them out till you need new ones. If you are to worried about appearance and have extra cash flow splurge on the 275-30-19.

MrHarris...did you ever decide on what to do?

I'm also considering 275/30/19 front, 295/30/19 rear on Volk TE37 G2's. I'm just not sure I want to do the full 275 on front or go with 265.

Any reports on how it went?

LeMans Blue (whom I have developed a high level of trust for, despite the fact that he is no longer allowed on this forum) recommended 265 which I was inclined to go with but since many have indicated no rubbing issues with 275 I'm reconsidering.

If it makes any difference, I currently don't have plans to lower. I'm not sure why the wheel gap would be any bigger between 265/30 and 275/30 though since the only difference there should be WIDTH, not overall HEIGHT, right? Or am I missing something?

^^^ there is a very very small difference on the height between 265 30 and 275 30, small enough that it may or may not make a difference if you will rub or not.

265/30 will have a slightly smaller sidewall. It's 30% of whatever the width. 275 will look like a 235/35, which I think is the least amount of sidewall to look good.

For 275/30, I'm worried bout rubbing on the spring with my offsets and using a square tire like the ad08.

Thanks for the input. I think I'll go with a 265/295 setup
