9.5 +12 is moderately aggressive in front as most people run +22

The common combo is 265/35 and 305/30 for 9.5/10.5 wheels

More to the point . . . if your suspension is stock, you are not flush. Sorta defeats the whole point of "flush"
The stock nismo is 245/40 and 285/35 and it is a little bit stretched (and thats a factory setup)
Thanks for the advice, I just want the Z to look similar when it had the 18x8.5 Super Advan SAR3 wheels with spacers. I sold those wheels and now I regret it.

that Advan set up is garbage. There's like three feet of wheel gap. You can stick your head in that gap. There's a reason why nobody should run 18's on a Z except for track - it looks like poop

buy real wheels in 19/20
buy coilovers and the SPL setup
take your car to a good alignment shop
enjoy your awesome looking car

New 19" wheels are on the way

Currently looking for tires... Suspension setup after that!

I have;
FR 19x9.5 +25 (Work M8R) on 265/40 (Goodyear Eagle F1)

RR 19x10.5 +12 (Work M8R) on 295/35 (Goodyear Eagle F1, 12 inch tread width)

The front tyres rub when I hit bumps or pot holes or even wavy roads.... my car is the Nismo 370Z MY17 so the front fender wheel well trim has an attachment point for the wheel arc garnish that bulges out... this bulge rubs my tyres.

I confirmed it by seeing the "hole" on the bulge's edge created by the tyre rub...

Your tire sizes are off. They are taller than stock. You should have gone 265/35 front and 305/30.

Also, I assume you did not get front camber arms

Lastly, take those ******* nismo fender flares off, they hurt clearance

I got the same rim specs as you in the front. I have 285/30-19 with no rubbing.

FWIW, I am also running 265/35 fronts on the factory Nismo wheels, no rubbing at all. I did notice a big improvement in turn-in and front end responsiveness over the stock 245/40's. Only drawback that I can see is that the car "tracks/tramlines" more when driving on roads with tire grooves from heavy trucks. (2010 Nismo, no suspension mods)

Have to keep the tire diameter within 3% front and rear.

I'm thinking of going with 305/35/18 in the rear and keeping the 275/40/18 in the front, hopefully this resolves the issues. Thanks!

That is within the acceptable range (26.7 vs 26.4 inches)

275/40zr 18 in the front and 295/45zr 18 give you a 6.8% difference.

275/40-18 and 305/35-18 gives you a 0.8% difference. Much better.
