michelin pss question.

Hi guys, I have 20in BBS LM-R Ericsson spec, I need a set of new tires very soon.

Think about getting michelin pss:

F:245/35/20
R:285/30/20 or 295/30/20

I have RD sport spring. will this setup rub?

Thanks in advance

Been looking into this too but haven't come to a conclusion yet. I think 245/35/20 would be too tall especially on RD sports. The 285/30 is the ideal size for the rear. The only other option that's close for the PSS is 265/30/20 in the front but I'm not sure that will fit either.

Only ps2 make 245/30/20.

I wonder if i can run ps2 245/30/20 front and 285/30/20 pss at the rear, will that cause a problem?

285/30/20 will be too big. Might want to see if you can go with 275/30/20 or go with a 255/30 front and 295/25 rear.

^ He's right!

Though with the ET8 up front I wouldn't chance going bigger then 245/30. Might rub...

I also read something that said Michelin advises people not to mix and match ps2 and pss

They don't make 275 in the size you want. 295 will probably rub on your LM-R since you are running an aggressive offset. I'm rubbing on my FI on 295.

245/35 might be too tall and rub.
