I don't think it was the drop that caused the rubbing, but the offset of your rear wheels. 275/40/18 is the recommended size for the rears, on a wider wheel, to maintain the stock tire/wheel OD, 275/35/18, is an inch to small.

Here's mine with the LMGT4 Nismo, that have a 30mm offset in the rear.

No, the 9.5" rear Nismo wheels are specifically "designed" for a 275 width tire. As mentioned, any rubbing with a 275 tire is b/c of wheel offset since you can tuck a 315 in there with the right setup.

275/40 is the correct rear tire size for an 18" wheel, not 275/35's. A 275/35 is smaller diameter and will throw off your speedometer and effectively add ~5% more miles to your car every time you drive.

dont want to steal the thread but how much size difference is there between a 285/35 compared to the 275/40? They are damn close in size arent they?

Anyone running Volk GTS 18's on their car? If so, I'd love to see pics and to find out what tires you're running and wheel offsets???
