Default Thanks guys.

Cam Ė yes, itís lowered (L-Tuned suspension) youíre just used to seeing skirts on (and off too, I hope).
AgGS Ė Agreed, gs4will was a big help. Youíre right on, super low rear and normal front. I donít know about 285ís, sure looks like it would fit Ė while at rest, donít know about compressed suspension. My chart shows only .1Ē difference in diameter (25.7 and 25.6) and it sure isnít detectable by the naked eye Ė at least not mine. The same may be true with offset Ė can we detect 5mm difference even when looking down the side of the car? Both front and back of mine are about as aggressive as I could want. Iíll post another picture looking right down the side of the car so the tire position can be better seen.

And gs4will answered some of the other questions more expertly than I could and thanks to him.

Yep, if your not interested in any fender mod, the 275 on a +41 19" wheel is max. It wont matter if you use 9.5" or 10" width, the additional 5mm to the street side(for certain with an S-03) will cause you to chirp over larger compressions/humps/bumps at speed...
Tire Rack now sells two different wheels(SSR GT-3 ans Superlegra 2-piece) in 19x10" for the GS. Both are only offered in +41 offset. I spoke to a rep there that said they have done testing on three different GS's using both Eibach pro-kit and H+R springs.
The 275 never rubbed, the 285 always rubbed. Either way, I personally think 275 is undersized on a 10" wheel.....
