I just have 33in Mud Tires....just a little bit of rubbing




I have the non staggered set up and no rubbing tires are 235 40-18. I know other sedan guys have reported no rubbing w/ the staggered set up either. No need to worry, but contact a sponsor that sells them before believing what I say

I'm running staggered 255/35/18 on Bridgestone RE040's. I use to rub, but now I'm all good. Had my fender's rolled and all. The only reason why I rubbed was my low drop.

Anyone out there even try mounting 265/35/18's on the CSL 18x9.5" rear? I am looking at Fuzion ZRI and they don't make the 255/35/18. Seems, looking at the specs, the Fuzion is a slighlty thinner tire and may fit about the same as a S-03 tire. Anyone have any words or experience? Much thanks, Matt

Well, I have a wagon, which is the same set up as a sedan. From what i've researched for the last few months is that the 265 will be too big in the rear. You will DEF have to roll the fender. With the 255, the tire is a lil streatched and is 50/50 of rubbing depending on how dropped your suspension is. I know the coupe guys have no prob with the 265 rear. Just my .02
