trying to go 275 square on OEM staggered rays, with 1 inch drop on coils, would the front have any issues?

Finally get to join the Meaty club!!!

Picked up some TE37SLs on craigslist
19x9.5 +22 Front
19x10.5 +22 Rear -20mm Spacer, effective offset +2

285/35 Front
325/30 Rear
on the all new Michelin Pilot Sport 4s

Lowered on Swift Springs

With the spacer it has super aggressive poke but would rub on the outside of the fender quite horrifically so I had to take off the spacer and it is actually quiet flush considering it is +22, thought it would be much worse. Dont have pictures without the Spacers but will add if requested.

No rubbing without the spacers. ONLY if i have a passenger, get some slight rub occasionally on the front right for some reason, havent inspected the cause. (No fat chicks)

This is WITH. without the 20mm it is actually flush. I think because the tires are so wide, +22 looks good.

Fuhhhh 345s

I like the PS4s but to be honest- I havent driven them super hard because my fronts rub more than I like. Low key wish I got 275's probably wouldnt rub at all. Need to roll my front fenders for sure.

Yep jsavvy; being lowered & +22’s on your 9.5/10.5” combo is 3/8” more aggressive up front & 1/8” less aggressive in rear; vs my +38 10/12’s on Factory ride height.
I plan to lower a tick/ after I get supporting parts to retain my -1.0* camber all around.
But those PS4S meats look really good!
I gotta get out the base Wheels & my All Seasons,,,cause weather is dipping cool here in S.C. Invo’s don’t like the cold & I sure wouldn’t ruin a set of summer Michelin tire’s in it either.
Ty for reply.

Well I just finished reading this entire thread. Yup, all 1135 posts, and I did learn a lot, and I recently replaced my tires with a bigger than stock size.

Sadly the most noticeable lesson here was that what is seemingly ďmeatyĒ to me is apparently only lunch meat to some of you guys...

No pics posted, Iím outta here... LOL

I'm waiting on someone to run a 325/345 combo, or a 345 square set-up.
