Fitment question

Just ordered new rear wheels 18x9 +33 offset for the rear.

Wondering about clearance issues with 275/35/18 Continential ExtremeContact DW in the rear only. Anyone had any experience with these sizes.

It will fit, but it will be a little bulged out. Might want to run a 265/35 tire.

Ok thank you. Thats what im looking to do as of now. Any recommendations on a good high performance summer only 265 tire? Was thinking Continetal DW's but they seem to be sold out everywhere.

Michelin PSS are a great summer tire. Lots of people, including myself, use them on this forum.

That would probably work on your car. It's the widest approved tire width for that wheel width though, so it's going to be very filled out.

Couldnt find any Continential DW's so i ordered a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports. They were more money than i wanted to spend but should perform well.

The PSS is a great tire, and is definitely worth the money. Enjoy!
