Rubbing with 275/35-19 PS4S and 12mm spacer?

Hey Guys,

Currently running 245/35-19 and 265/35-19 S04 tires on my competition wheels. I also have 12mm spacers all around. Wanted to upgrade to a 255/275 combo with PS4S's, but wondering if anyone has experience with 275/35-19 rears + 12mm spacer and if there was any rubbing.

Thanks in advance!

I think you will rub.

I had PSS 275/35/19 with 10mm spacers and I rubbed the rear fender liner. I don't think the thread width of the PS4S vs PSS is narrower.

Thanks for the info. I heard about PSS's rubbing, but wasn't sure if someone used the PS4S just yet. I think they are about the same width, but not sure if the sidewall is different. So it rubbed on the outer fender liner not the fender lip?

The rear of the liner, where the bumper meets the rear 1/4 panel. It's rubbing plastic, no metal rubbing.
