    Hey guys,

    We are getting rid of the Mickey Thompsons and looking to get a set of Michelin Pss. The fronts aren't an issue finding (255/40/19) but the backs (305/35/20) Michelin doesn't seem to make. So the only option is really a 305/30/20 or a 315/35/20. Does anyone have any pics of the 305/30? Would the 315/35 rub? I do take it out of town occasionally so the trunk does get full of luggage and adds some weight.

    It all depends on your wheel fitment. if its proper then I believe you can go up to 325 or 335.

    What's the offset on your rear wheels? I'm running a set of forgestars with a 315/35/20 in the rear and it clears just fine, car is lowered on steeds ultralite springs. I believe my rear wheels are +55 offset and they are 20x11.

    Mine are +55 as well. I did have some rubbing on the inner fender liner but that was it. I heated it and bent it back some.

    Just mounted 19x11 +55 with mpss 305/35. Fitment is perfect and I had about a little finger width between the tire and shock. Especially with a +53 offset I don’t see why a 315 wouldn’t work

    I've never seen anyone rub on a 17 with a 35 aspect ratio. Probably never will. That's a bigggg difference when compared to a 20" wheel.
