would there be rubbing issues with an OEM suspension ? would they look really awkward when they are mounted on an 8.5" (255) and 10" (285) ? current OEM setup with 225 on 8" and 255 on 9" the fronts look to be a bit stretched (slanted sidewall), while the rears have a nearly vertical side wall
255s fit on 8.5s well enough.

Rubbing will be determined by offsets.

Current Cars: 2005 IR/IR M3, 2001 LMB/blk M5, 03 530i, 04 M3 wagon, and some boring stuff
