I went from 275 to 285 and have been experiencing rubbing issues. Aside from trying to off load these new tires, or rolling the fenders any suggestions??
Roll your fenders.

Or you could dial in more negative camber. Rolling your fenders would be the best choice though

I may get crap for this but it is a fat tire considering the size of the wheel. 18x9.5 +20 all around 275/40 R and 255/40 F. You don't need super low offsets to be aggressive.

Not even close, you need to be ~+5 to +0 with a 9.5 to be flush with a 275

my tires actually stick out past the fender with my setup, the wheels are almost flush, so i guess it depends.

Thats because you are still rockin a 4x4 stance. Once you lower it, the wheels will camber in and won't be flush

Nice thread, I just got some 9.5 and 10.5 on 19’s with +22’s I was thinking of 255 up front and 295 in the back, but after looking all these sweet rides. I am thinking of going a little wider. My car is not lowered and the fenders are not rolled. I will adjust after the tires are on, but it sounds like I might need a 10mm spacer all around. So the question is what the widest I go in the back?

You could likely go 265/35 in the front. Anything larger than a 295 in the rear is pushing it with your set up. My wife's ZR has 19x10.5" +28 rears with a 305/30 PS2, and it is > < close to rubbing. It is not lowered. I don't know if there are 6mm more there. Grab a used set of 305s (that's what I did - I also have some if you're interested) to test fit. You don't need a spacer in the rear with that 295 tire. You could always try them later as well.

I have seen 285/35/19 rub in the rear without rolled fenders rub so you'll already be pretty close with the 295 if not already rubbing. If you roll your fenders 305 will easily fit

Five Axis S5:F

19x9.5+25 255/35/19
19x10.5+22 295/30/19














The rears are rubbing. I am trying to get my hands on a fender roller. The 295's are a bit wide IMO, and it all sticks out a bit too far. Recomended tires are 285's for the back, but I came across these so I got them. This is all on stock suspention, I have a full set of BC coilovers that I have not installed yet do to fender rolling.

Very nice...what's your suspension set up? Is this a daily driver as well?

Once you lower the car, you shouldn't have rubbing issues, especially if you're rolling the fenders.
