Need Tire Sizing Help on PSS with Spacers...Rub Question

I am looking to upgrade my stock PS2s on ZCP wheels to PSS.

I have 12mm and 15mm spacers on the car.

Can anyone tell me, without telling me to use the search feature, whether the following will rub both WITH and WITHOUT wheel spacers?

1. 265/35/19 and 285/35/19
2. 255/35/19 and 275/35/19

Does option 1 keep stock specs and will it result in DSC issues?

Ohhh good post.

I have 255/35/19 and 275/35/19 PSS on a 2013 stock zcp suspension but I'm installing 12/15mm MS spacer Monday together with camber plates...so the additional neg camber may be what prevents rubbing. I will ask Malek @ MRF as he has tested all these combos with the ZCP wheels + spacers + tire sizes.

I have PSS 255 front and 275 rear on an otherwise stock ZCP car and there's some room but I think it would be close with those spacers and 265/285. 255/275 should work fine.

#1 will be way off in sizing and will certainly rub. You want 265/30/19 and 285/30/19. These will not rub when used with ZCP wheels and no spacers.

#2 will probably rub with a 15mm front spacer. Even with 245 PSS and 12.5mm spacers, I have only a few mm of clearance from the fender liner on full turn.

I am running 12mm spacers up front with 255/35 PSS on 220M wheels. I am getting slight rub on patial lock on the fender liner. So 15mm with either the 255/35 or 265/35 will most likely rub, especially with ZCP wheels.

275/35 PSS with 5mm spacers in back with no rub. But it is tight.

Stock civic suspension with EDC.

Forget option 1, wrong sizes. Option 2 or GTS sizes w/o spacers is my recommendation for a no rub solution...actually, you may still rub slightly with a 255/35-19 up front on full lock. If you gotta do the bulldog stance, keep stock size tires w/spacers.

255/35R19 PSSs on front 359s w ZCP stock suspension: I had no rub without spacers, and a very slight left-front fender liner rub with 12.5mm spacers at half-turn. Full neg camber with pins pulled. I did not have this problem with AD08s same size no spacers w camber plates on my previous car.

275/35R19 PSSs on rear 359s w ZCP stock suspension: Slight fender liner rub on even medium dips. With 12.5mm spacers, I was getting slight fender rub on outer edge. You could see the mild scrapes. A bit of neg camber adjustment and all gone.

Altogether I love how the wheels fill the wells now!

Hope this helps!

I can't decide between 255/35 275/35 and 265/30 295/30 on zcp wheels. I feel like the first option is slightly better for keeping with factory parameters, but on the other hand the 295 rear should provide some extra grip, which I will definitely be able to use with the Ess 625 kit.

I guess the 285/30/19 PSS isn't happening this year?

Thank you for the help everyone! I ended up going with 255/35/19 and 275/35/19 combo. Regarding the rub issue with spacers, I'll have the tire place keep the spacers on for me and I'll turn the wheel all the way to see if it rubs. If so, I'll take out the spacers

I am thinking of combining your set ups, that is 255/35/19 F and 295/30/19 R. My problem with 265/30/19 F is that the OD will be 25.3" vs. 26" with 255/35/19. A 0.7" increase in fender gap in the front. Thus more drop needed to maintain current stance. I also find it interesting that longboarder with his supercharger and runway events is only running 275's in back. So I wonder if the grip improvement gained in going from 275 to 295 will even be noticeable by someone such as myself.
