maybe if you rocked 215/35 all around, maybe 215/40 but youll probably rub a little in the rear without a very slight roll its about 2-4mm to aggressive for no mods, but thats about it.

Need some help. Going with 20" vossens. They are 20x10.5 and 20x8.5. I'm not sure if I'm going to do springs or coils yet. Not looking to do fender mods. I was thinking:

if I go with springs, to go with 235/30/20 in the front and 265/30/20 in the rear. That should fill the wells without rubbing if I'm not mistaken. Can someone please offer some insight as to if these sizes will rub on springs?

if I go with coils, to go with 225/30/20 in the front and 285/25/20 in the rear. That should allow me to go pretty low without rubbing as well.



ONLY problem is, I may have to stay on stock suspension before I get some sort of drop (roughly 2 weeks) so I dont want to buy tires for springs, then end up with coils, or vs versa.


Anyone have any suggestions?

they're 38 and 45 I believe. Front and rear respectively.

I think I'll stick with 265/30. I prefer 275/30, but I REALLY dont want to rub or have to mod my fenders AT ALL, so I'd rather be safe

It doesnt factor in the tyre size i want to run which plays a big difference on the front of the 2IS.

How much more or less aggressive is a

18x10 +18
vs
18x9.5 +15

I guess will the 9.5 +15 poke out more than the 10 +18 ?

Thanks!
