Moving rear 265 tires to front wheels on ZCP possible?

Know this may be tire dependent but cant find any posts discussing this yet. I'm going to go 255/275 or maybe 265/285 on the ZCP/359 19's for street tires and will likely use my new stockers for track stuff eventually. I'd like to stay on 35s if at all possible but may have to do 30s for clearance(fronts)... What are the thoughts on this?

Do I need to swap to a 30? Ideally Id like to move the stocker rears to the fronts and buy 285/35s to put on the rears.

I'm trying to eek out a few mos before I get a track setup. Figuring it will be first of the year before I'll have enough break-in mileage to feel comfortable with a track day. Tia.

I went with 30's all the way around. This was close to stock ride height and my Arkym lip appreciates that I think 35's on a 10 inch wheel might be too tight................Phil

Stock rear tires won't fit. The outer diameter is too large and will rub a hole in the back of the fender liner. I tried it. I think the max OD is about 26".... A little less than OEM.

I have a 255/40R18 (25.9 OD) and it's real close.

Of course, if you don't mind rubbing a hole in the liner it will fit. But you'll notice some more cabin noise.

This...my Nitto Invo 255/35/19 are a cats whisker away from rubbing. I know Malek tried the 265/35/19s and tracked the car and didn't rub..he is not the norm though...Kitw and others tried it and rubbed bad.

You can run a 265 tire up front, but wouldn't recommend a 35 series, you will have to go with a 30 series.

If you want to run a 10" wide ET 25 rim (rear ZCP) run a 275/30/19 up front.
