I do. Right now, not on the standard OEM 166M's, but same width and with 12 mm spacing. No rubbing on the rears, ever.

However, at full left or right steering angle, I sometimes get slight rubbing in the front on uneven surfaces. That's with 255's on stock rim dimensions, 12 mm spacing and about 25-30 mm lowering. There are members here with 12 or even 15 mm spacers, that say they don't get that, so it must be rather individual. However, my wheel alignment is 100% according to spec. Checked it two weeks ago.

Good to know! Anyone run 295's on stock rims with 12mm spacers?

Thanks for the info! I might go with 295's then in spring! Mine is lowered, but I guess it will be ok.
