PS2s in 255/30/20 have been known to rub. If you stick with 245/30 on the front you should be fine. Not sure what you plan to run on the rear. There are a couple guys running 295/25/20 with no problems. I haven't seen anyone run 285/30/20 with PS2s.

245/30 and 285/30 on 20" BBS LMs. Rubbed a little at first in the rear but now that the rubber lining has worn down no more rubbing. I'm also dropped on rdsport springs.

I installed new 20" wheels a few days ago and have no rubbing problem whatsoever:
- stock suspension
- PS2 255/30/20 front
- PS2 305/25/20 front
- HRE P40 (offset +28 F/R)

I purposely try to go on some bumpy road to test and no rubbing so far.

So you got 305 rear? NICE! I changed to 305 rear as well after rolling on 265 for couple days...

The key here is stock suspension. If you were lowered, you'd probably experience rubbing at least on the front like a lot of people have reported. I'm not sure about the 305 rear since there's only a handful of people who have gone 305 for the rear and I don't think they were on PS2s.

Yes, I am pretty sure I am not going to lower my car for at least the next couple years so the tyre dealer suggests me to go 305 rear (295 is the same price), PS2. and so far so good.

Yes, 305 was surprisingly good (to be honest, I was a bit worried about it before installation but it turns out to be good), how much they charge you for the few days used 265?

Yees won't rub offset determines if it will or won't.

I run 255/30/20 fronts on 9J P40 et 28 AND a 10mm spacer dropped on KWV3 and no rubbing

Rear 295/25/20 on 10,5J et 28 and 5mm spacer no rubbing
