I don't think you'll get a reply from Mike. I bought the car from him and I'm not sure that he browses the forum anymore.
To answer your question in his/my behalf the fenders where modded. Mike had rolled and did a light pull on them. When I purchased the car I also decide to purchase the wheels. When I reinstalled them on the car it still had a rubbing issue and was peeling the outer sidewall (more so on the right side) I had to grind the tabs on the bottom edge of the quarter panel and repaint it.
After that it was a lot better but still rubbed at times, more so with a full tank of gas and/or a passenger. I got the Mega Arms from Figs and I have toe links on order, next will be BC/Swift COs.
While I am waiting for the Figs toe links I decided to install an F sport sway bar temporarily and the rub seems to be gone. I tried the car yesterday on a test track that has some turns with elevation change and I had no rub. I think I had it down to cornering load and the sway bar limited the body roll enough to stop it. I'll probably leave the bar installed with the new suspension now that I have it.
If I had to do it from scratch I would probably go with 295s but now that the hard part is done I'm very happy to have the PSS 305s that Mike and Figs had picked out.
That being said I only have the stock Brigestones to compare this tire to on the ISF but I still see no reason to explore other tire options.
I think this will be the next tire that goes on the Supra when the NT05s are worn.
