285/295 fit on front/rear?

I've been running a square 18x9.5" MT1 setup with 275 NT01/R6 rubber from my old E46. Has anyone been successful running a wider tire on a 18x10" wheel? I'm thinking more rubber would help compensate for the weight increase over the E46.

I'm interested to hear about this also.

I'm running 18x9.5 with the OEM 264/40/18's.

What aspect ratio are you running on the 275's?

Car really needs some negative camber up front! I can't believe how long it is taking for EDC compatible camber plates to appear.

I'm running the front maxed (stock) but am not killing the stock PS2's too bad... yet.

I have the Dinan plates waiting to be installed... I will post up how much negative camber I was able to get.

There is about 15mm of static clearance between the shock and the tire with my 265 fronts which are on 18x9.5" ET28 wheels. You can work it out from there. RJ has been saying that he has rubbing issues on the liner with the stock rears mounted up front.
