Need help with tire sizes!

What tire sizes are you guys running on 19x9.5 et22 and 19x10.5 et22? Was originally doing 265/30 and 285/30 but 285/30 is not offered in PS4S. Anyone rubbing on 275F and 295R with these offsets?

My wheels are Apex EC-7 in those offsets. Based on their guide I should run 265/30 and 285/30 for a flush fitment. Problem is 285/30 is not available in PS4S tires, only PSS. Should I do 295/30 or just run continental?

As for the front, is it possible to fit 275/30 on et22?

I currently run the second setup in the Apex article. 295 PSS in the back were too close to the fender for comfort so I raised the rear a bit. Some manufacturers run more narrow so you may be fine with other than PSS if you find one that runs more narrow. I really came to appreciate the tire specs that tirerack lists when researching sizes.

275s up front rub the liner on lock.

I ran 295/30 PSS on my ZCP wheels and it was too meaty and stretched.. It kept rubbing on my fender even after raising it. Some people say PS4S run more flush that PSS

I use 275/30-19 PS4S ET23 Style 220 rear wheels square for my pothole season setup

It fits great. Pretty much identical fender liner clearance to my 275/35-18 contis on 18x10 ET25, because the 19" michelin setup has a more square sidewall profile

I ended up going with 19x10 et25 square setup. Thinking of doing 265/30F and 285/30R for that staggered look. What do you think

I think you'll wish you could rotate - I'd use a 275 and if you want it to fill out better in back, use a 5 or 12mm spacer
