FT: 265/30/19 T1R. 90% new. need 255/30/19 T1R

like the title suggest. the 265/30/19 is causing rubbing due to offset. they have less than 2k miles on it. I need to trade with 255/30/19 in same condition T1Rs.

SoCal Diamond Bar area of course.

255-30 is really rare size and not much of different. you might wanna go with 245-35 to make sure they won't rub.

the 265/30 is actually barely rubbing, but it is rubbing. one of the reason it still rub is that I have camber arms which I am currently running 0 camber. just want to see if there's anyone the runs 255 willing to trade up before I go back to Neg camber that will need swapping tire side to side.

going Neg camber is my last resort. lol

245/30 is too narrow for the 9.5. don't want to risk bending a lip on the LMs since I'll be hitting up the canyons.

thanks, but no thanks. 245/35 is half inch to 3/4 inch taller than the 255/30. it'll just create more problem while leaving me no foot print to put down the power.
