VMR 19x10 Front wrapped in Michelin PSS 265/30/19 tires
Arkym lip painted Mineral white

Malek,

Is there an advantage to having the 265\30 setup over 275\30 on the front? Was it necessary due to the offset on the VMRs?

I personally prefer the 275/30 up front, but in this case the customer opted for the 265/30 combo. The only tiny disadvantage of the 275/30 in comparison to the 265/30 is steering feedback, however it is such a small difference that most would not be able to tell.
