Got my tires and rims on. It is a very tight fit between the inner fender and rim I could but a small spacer becasue I have half inch room on outer lip. It does rub when turning very hard or going over big dips to quickly or a lot of passengers, but the rubbing is very minimal. Its worth getting 265s in my opinion.

Old tires I guess? I have them on my E30 and really like them though.

The old Kumho SPT was replaced by the Kumho LE Sport.

It still shows that theyre up for sale on tirerack though.
The ecsta le spt tread looks okay. The tread on the ecsta spt look a lot better.

When the 265 tires were brand new they would rub minimally, but now that they are 3,000 miles old they never rub.
