I just picked up my first 330 vert - TiAg w tannin red interior -psyched!

First of all, the forums are fantastic!

I want to put 162 wheels on it. Any suggestions for best tire size to avoid rubbing or other problems?

Thanx!

I'm lowered and run spacers (12mm) all 4 corners on a sedan with style 162's

Fronts 225-40-18

Rears 235-40-18

Note- different tires have different sidewall profiles, so not all tire sizes are equal- and that can be the difference between rubbing or not especially when running spacers, when millimeters count!

thanx. I'll be running regular sport, too. Not planning on lowering - wanna save my teeth!

Does the 255/35 fill the wheel well a bit better? Certainly looks like you've got room - Do you run spacers?

No spacers, no problems. I just put a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 on with no rubbing. There is one deep dip that I have twice heard a short chirp but it may not be rubbing as I also redid my RTABs and put limiters on the bushings and I may have heard that.
I have had them for a few years now and never had a problem with them rubbing with other brands, so I don't think it is that but even if it is, it is minor as to be inconsequential.
