Andy, with a 285 a 10mm rear would be rubbing all the time. Maybe a 5mm might work but that would be close. Generally for the 12/10mm setup people are running +1 255/375 staggered.

I have seen that setup before and the front is pretty aggressive as is. You might be able to go about a 5mm but thats about it. The rear on those should be 19x10 et 25. Rear you can go with a 12mm since they are the same fitment as the OE 359 wheels.

With the style 219's wheels I would go with a 15mm front and a 12mm rear. Those should be a safe bet with no rubbing. Feel free to PM me for details.

Looking at picking up some Swift Spec R Springs, anybody have photos of that with 15 Front/12 Rear Setup?

If I decide to eventually upsize to 255/275, can I still run the 15/12 setup with Swift Spec R Springs?

Here is 15/12 on an e92 M3 with Swift springs. When you go +1 on the tires I would step down to a 12 mm front and a 10mm rear.

If I keep the 15/12 on the +1, I risk rubbing I guess? Especially with PSS?

I'm on ZCP wheel 15/12 lowered on B&G springs. I have my rear upgraded to 275 and it used to rub the edge where the two panels join. I shaved it down a little and I don't rub anymore.

Generally speaking +1 on the tires I would say 12/10 combo. Like M power mentioned you could shave the inner part of the wheel well in the rear to help out.

I haven't done that combo before but I would say no spacers are needed. AD08R's are on the wider side of tires.

I'm changing it up, ordered Ohlins and Camber Plates instead.

Kevin, do you have a suggestion on what spacer size to use, if I run about -2~ in the front? Something more geared towards handling.

220M, 245/265 PSS currently.

I assume the rears will stay at a 12MM, but fronts, I could go up to a 20MM maybe?

Rears I would safely say you can bump it up to a 15mm to match the rear and fronts I would say you can go with an 18mm.

Looks like you could use a 10mm in the rear or so. Front looks fine to me. When you say you have a 5mm is that installed on the front or rear?

I currently have 15mm front spacers on Stock ZCP ride height and wheels. I am going to a 255/35 PSS. Should I get a smaller spacer or will I be OK since it's stock ZCP ride height and ZCP wheels?

Double-check to make sure there is no rust or other debris on the hub of the wheel and cinch/torque wheel down in a star pattern.
