Anyone running PSS 245/30/20 & 285/25/20

When I got my 20" rims these sizes where not available in these sizes with PSS tires so I got nitto invo's. I am not happy with the nitto invo's honestly....I do have a slight issue with my new rims not being exactly true, hub is ever so slightly off (not to happy with concept one) according to the wheel balance machine. The nitto tires walk all over the place, don't hold air very well and no where near as god as a PSS in the rain (I put my 19's on with PSS because of this). They also ave way to much feed back...only good thing is they are quite and have cool tread pattern.

My question:

Anyone running PSS 245/30/20 & 285/25/20 and having rubbing issues (PSS do have bigger rounder sidewalks than most). I have these in nitto invo's and they do not rub but have less sidewall....more concerned with front than back....back has plenty of clearance.

My fenders are all rolled
My offsets are: F (35) B(42)
Rim width: F (9") B (10.5")

Info specs provided by "Joey Weiss" at "preferred customs"

Michelin Pilot SS tires... the 285s are currently on national back-order. They show them on tirerack, but you can see the availability shows "backorder". I am considering going with a 295/25/20 if I can fit it....more tread the better and this would help with my traction issues (so will the wavetrac)

These are the actual dimensions from the manufacturers.

Fronts:

Current Tires: Nitto Invo 245/30ZR20............ 25.83 inch diameter, 9.53 inch width
New Tires: Michelin Pilot SS 245/30ZR20..... 25.80 inch diameter, 9.70 inch width

Rears:

Current Tires: Nitto Invo 285/25ZR20............ 25.55 inch diameter, 11.50 inch width
New Tires: Michelin Pilot SS 295/25ZR20..... 25.83 inch diameter, 11.90 inch width

The front tires will be fine, but I need to determine if I have enough clearance for the slightly larger rear tires.

0.30" overall diameter taller = 0.15" or 4mm less space between the top of the tire and the fender well.

0.40" overall width wider = 0.20" or 5mm less space between the outer side of the tire and the body of the car & the inner side of the tire and suspension components.
