    I'm running a Sport Cup 2 in a 265/35/20 on a 20x9.5 inch wheel and I have only 3mm of clearance to the suspension parts on the inside and I don't think I could push it out any further without rubbing the fenders.

    I'll have to look up that TSW. What's the size and offset again?

    I'm wondering if your R888 in a 295 isn't pretty close in size to my 265's. My 264 fronts in the Sport Cup 2 are larger than my 285 stock PS/2 rears. Both are Michelin tires so I was surprised the Cup 2's are SO larger for their marked sidewall size.

    The wheel below is Rotary Forged 19x10/19x11 [approx 24 lbs] and these I can get 19x10 +45.



    I know I know!

    I'm not sure on my fronts. I'll have to measure. They are 20x9.5 Forgeline VX3C's and in that size they come in around 21 lbs. I've run a 275/35/20 Michelin Super Sport on them and now a 265/35/20 Sport Cup 2. A 265/40/19 would be a nice tire up front...a tad more sidewall for comfort and a good match for stock. Slightly larger diameter should close the fender gap a little too.

    I see. That's a significant manufacturer sizing difference. I want to say im running 19x9s up front and 19x10s in the rear. John form best wheel deals set me up nice. I paid just over a grand for wheels: in contrast, the tires were 1442$ shipped to my door from tire rack. Lol. Yes my tires cost more than my wheels.

    On another note, I shed approx 4-5 pounds of unsprung weight (vs factory wheels) and it along with 100 treadwear rating, and D3 comp springs significantly improved braking time and reduced nose dive. The 295 tire is "The Square Stance" that D3 ran on several cars. Matt farah test drove a sedan featured on The/Drive Network. FWIW. The TSW Nurburgrings, and like 2 others are a lightweight rotary forged wheel that wont blow the budget, but look good at the same time. The only thing that sucks is you can't get custom offsets, hence the reason for me still wanting to find a good wheel tire combo to rum 345s and 295s. 305s look healthy outback, but not compared to those steam rollers

    If possible, post some shots, so we can see how the 295s sit on the car. I'll look at your order history and see what we sent out.

    ^^^ Looks really good. I'll have to snap some shots of mine done the same...full lock L/R so we can compare. Good to know folks are getting a 285 and even 295 up front. Buh by plowing and understeer. Well...they at least get some time off!

    Thanks TT, the grip is very good. I would do sway bars but dropping the front clip deters me. I've seen ppl purchase sway bars and own tjem for over a year without installing them.

    Ok, I totally remember your order now. Dude, those are some really good shots. And, I noticed your tires have lots tread left. Why not just run the 305 on 19x12? It'll open up beautifully on 19x12; you can see it's begging for it. Hahaha. Ok. Seriously, 345 or nothing. But R888 do run wide, so your 305 will open on 19x12.

    MJ,

    Thank you as well. That is a great angle to show the 20x12 + 345. Thanks for posting.

    John,
    Im glad you remembered my order. If I had a 19x12 I'd run a 345 over a 305 all day. On the other hand, I love the color/texture and fit/finish of the TSW Nurburgrings. They also cut down on unsprung weight significantly. Wish they made custom offsets.😊 I'll consider the closest style to the Nurburgrings.

    Closest style will be F14, but looking 4 - 7 weeks to ship.
