rears to the front

would our stock ps2's from the rear fit on the front rim? Then go with a 295 to the rear?

I don't think they would fit on the wheel, but an instructor at a track day told me I could rotate front to back for awhile to even out the wear. Can anyone confirm that?

Sounds like bull to me. The back tyres are 20mm wider than the fronts so they wouldn't fit.

They will work fine for track days in the front. I run the rears on all four corner of my sedan. They do rub the inner front fenders near full lock, though. On the track this won't matter.

maybe a 5mm spacer that would cure the rub?

It's the outside of the tire rubbing on the front and rear of the inner fender. A spacer would make it worse. The correct solution is to put 255/40-18s on the front, but this defeats the purpose of putting the same size tires front and rear. I may eventually try to modify the inner fenders.

Nope.


You will be increasing the overall diameter too much.
E9x M3 has different OD front and rear.
