ZCP ? - will the 265/35 on the rear work on the front?

Pretty sure the answer is no but would be a lot cheaper to move the rear tire to the front (add a 10mm spacer) and put a 285/30 on the rear. Any thoughts/opinions?

That sounds like a good idea, but it may rub.

It will rub when turning near full lock, but if it's for tracking or if you can live with this then go for it.

The 285/30 in the rear will look NOTICEABLY smaller than the front.

Some additional thoughts... I've got 275/30 up front and it fits but rubs slightly on the outer fender over big bumps (and rear part of front fender liner on full lock.) The 265/35 will obviously be narrower so that will help but the 35 aspect ratio in that width means the tire is almost 1" taller than what I am running (1/2" taller than the stock 245/35). I think that will be tough. Then again I am running AD08s which have a very square shoulder compared to the PS2. How much drop is dialed into your GCs? Camber?

Also note that with 285/30 out back you would be 1/2" shorter compared to the 265/35 front, which is the opposite stagger/wedge to stock (stock 265/35 rear is 1/2" taller than the 245/35 front.)

Yeah I knew this was wishful thinking....

I'll either go with a 255/35 and 285/30 or 275/30 and 295/30 combo....

Thanks!

+1, this is my current set up. Just barely rubs up front for me tho. I actually changed from 285/30 to 285/35 in the rear cause the 30's just bothered me wayyy too much. The rubbing up front is not bad.
