so far no rubbing and yea 10.5 all around..why go with federals or you meant why 275 all around? well federals is cheap and its good enough for me for its price... i wish i went 285 all around but it depends on the brand because some brands has thicker sidewalls..

Reviving this thread again - have read through pros/cons of square vs. staggered setup but I'm struggling to figure out what to do for a track set. My street set is the ZCP's with stock tire sizes (245/265) and I liked the feel of the setup on my first DE in Sept. I plan to do 2-3 track days next year and will drive to/from the track with the track set.

Will a square setup (assuming square tires as well) feel noticeably different on track - i.e. will it introduce a lot more oversteer than the staggered setup and take a lot of getting used to on track, or is it a subtle change?

It's not so much more oversteer as less understeer, better turnin and a frontend that can hang on for longer before the narrower stock tire gives up mid-corner. If you're on stock suspension the car will probably still eventually push unless you're really absurdly hamfisted

LOL, yeah this makes sense. I did notice a bit of tendency for the front end to wash/give up a bit in the longer/slower turns - I just had to be careful with throttle modulation so as not to induce TTO.
