If you haven't bought the tires yet I would suggest going with 235/265 because you will rub (with Ps2's or any other tire with square sidewall thats as tall as PS2's), take my word for it.

Michelin's are great handlers yet I noticed that the sidewall of 35 looks like a 40 almost. I was able to stick 2 fingers between the fender and a tire, now its just one.
I have the tires already sitting in my garage. If they don't fit, I'll decide what to do at that point.

Maybe since I'm lowered, the geometry is changed enough to avoid rubbing in the front? I have my fingers crossed.

I should've turned the wheels to see when I test-fitted the wheels with the 245/35 Michelins.
