the best Square set up (tires)

so what is the best set up?

285/35/18 or 275/35/18 ?

i have notice there is quite a lot of rubbing going on with the 285 set up but yet still I see many using this set up.

why?

I don't see members running 285/35/18 square setups. 285/30/18 yes.

My preference is the 275/35/18 setup as it's an ideal overall diameter for the car F/R vs. 285/30, and available from most brands.

There are very, very few 285/35 options.

I run RS3 285/35/18, they are the best street tire square set up. 285/30/18 in the back is too small.
