Tight. My guess is that you need +35 minimum for this setup.

No need for spacers. Might need to roll fenders in the rear

Damn, that sux.....Once I get them, will I still be able to drive the car to get the fenders rolled? Or am I gonna have to find a way to get them done before I change them out?

All of my tires are practically gone, I bought a set off a member here but just had my dad pick 'em up and figured i'd switch them when I go home in a few weeks....Unfortunately, my luck ran out and I got a flat....Now my car's sitting on jack stands until my brother comes up this weekend with my new rims/tires....

Yes, you'll be able to drive, it might only rub in bumps or when fully loaded.

With the 275 in the rear you're definitely going to have to roll the fenders... You're going to rub easily on normal driving. I would have suggested just going with 265 in the rear because of just the hassle of rolling the fenders CORRECTLY as well as possibly hurting the tire or the inner fender well.

275 and ET30 in the rear will -most likely- rub. ET30 in front is pretty aggressive as well.. might stick outside the fender.

Well, I think the OP stated he bought the wheels/tires already, so I don't think he'll be able to easily change tire sizes. But, with stock suspension, you'll be able to get to a shop to roll the fenders. You will rub a though, mainly during bumps and acceleration.

I have Rota Torques in the same rim and tire sizes, except for the rear tires, which are 265. I was rubbing with the 265s until I rolled the fenders. I've had no issues with the fronts.

Thanks everyone!! Now I just have to wait and see......as long as the rear doesn't rub too bad, I can slowly drive the car somewhere to get the fenders rolled....definitely excited to see how the car launches with some better and wider rears!!!

to be honest, i dont think you will rub at all.... i used the calculator at the top of the page, i put my rear wheel specs in and i put your rear wheel specs in and it says that the outside edge of the wheel will RETRACT 1mm.... and im not rubbing at all... even with a full car...

and for the fronts.... your front wheels will extend an EXTRA 2mm... which means you will rub a little... because mine dont rub, but theyre hella close.... you might be fine, but maybe a little rolling may be needed up front...

Alright, so I put them on tonite and they do rub. I took the car for a spin after putting them all on....i had all the windows open and once or twice, where the road dips down, I could hear the back right tire rub.......Now i gotta find someplace to roll the fenders.....

O yea, forgot to mention, these Pirelli's are 1000x better than the runflats and these wider rims, even though they rub, look so damn good on the car!!! I'll take pics soon....
