I get some rubbing up front on full lock. I haven't pulled the wheels off yet to confirm but will do that this weekend. We have some poor roads near where I am that have big rolling dips that really compress the suspension. On the comfort EDC setting I get some rub on the outer edge of the fender. I am currently at stock camber settings so going to go max negative (close to -2 IIRC) next week to see if it helps.

I had some friends in the car last week and with 4 passengers I got a little rub on the rear as well through the dips (same place, outer edge of the fender.) The square sidewall plus the offset (ET 22) makes it tight on the outer edge. If you are lowered it might be an issue. Will report back once I get more camber up front. I want to make it work because I LOVE the tires. Incredible grip with the only downside being a slightly firmer sidewall compared to PS2 and slightly more road noise. I had a chance to test them in the wet on the street and was happy with the wet performance as well.

You should be able to get around -2 camber in the rear with stock suspension, that should help also.

How close are to rubbing the struts, or is that not an issue?

Wheels look great!!

Thanks for the props. Don't think that's an issue but will check this weekend.

Sweet pics. Those tires are HUGE.
I don't think you could get -2 camber up front, even with pulling the pin. Most don't get more than -1.6 after pulling the pin.

Please keep us updated on the rubbing with the AD08s! My friend is running a 265/30/19 295/30/19 set up on his e60 M5. I have a 275/35/18 square set up right now on RT-615's for my track set up and really wanna get the 275/30/19 295/30/19 setup in RE-11's or AD08s for my RACs when they get in but was worried about rub so was settling with 265/285.

Did you get a chance to play with the camber or pull the wheels off to see where it's rubbing. I'm about to order some tires and can't decide between going with 265 or 275 in the front. Right now I'm lowered on rdsport springs and plan on using these wheels for the track.

How's the rubbing in the front? Can you live with it? How you think a 19x10 ET20 would pair with a 275/30/19 out front? I would assume it would be a little more stretched since it's an inch wider. I'm not worried about the size of the wheel or offset, that I know will work.

Bart, I can live with the rubbing but I'm not lowered. I get a little rub in the rear fender liner and some front the fender lip under full compression. If a 10" wheel would fit (would be surprised but sounds like you know it can) that would be a better width for the 275 honestly than the 9" wide front I run. I don't think it would look stretched.
