His car was slightly lowered with the Dinan suspension, and he sold the tires not long after he posted the above thread.
I think he was getting a bit of rubbing, but I'm not sure where; probably on the fender, vs inside.
Those look incredible! Was he rubbing on the fronts or rears? or both? A lot of aftermarket wheels come in 10.5 rears and that IMO seems too wide! With these being 9.5 rears I would think that wouldn't be much of an issue, but it seems like 285's are just to wide for our cars.
