if your going for 245 in the fronts on squared OE CSL rear wheels then i would think to just go 275/30 rears. Should look great but fronts might look a little stretched

Check out my earlier journal entries with square ZCP's and 265/30-19. All those photos have no spacer in front, 10mm in rear.

Like in this one:





I actually PM'd the guy with the LSB i posted pictures of above^, he said he ran 235/35 instead of a 30 cuz it would stretch a little sit well, unlike with a stretched 30 which wouldn't sit right cuz it actually should be a 265 for these wheels.

So I ran a 255/35 and a 275/30 and it would trip out DSC. So now I'm running 265/35 and it's gravy.

This is with a 12.5mm spacer in the rear.

Does anyone know which tire brand has a better/smaller sidewall when stretching a little bit?

I'm on TCK DA's so I'm not that low, about 13" from the center cap to the fender all around. The 255 up front paired with the 275 in the rear was weird. I don't recco that setup at all. Frigging tramlined like a mofo.

I'm running PSS's but PS2's run the same width anyways. Go with a 35.

Thank me later.

But yes I think I'm set with 245/35 for the fronts and 255/35 for the rears... my buddy is taking off a pair of 255/35 Pirelli P Zero's, might just grab those from him for cheap just to run for a little while.

I'm running TK D/As with Pilot Cups 265/30/19. 12.5mm spacer on the back. Pretty happy with it. Performs well and IMHO looks pretty good with the low profile. Couple of pics:
