Was that because of the rim or tire came too close to suspension??

Do you think that 255/265 will work without spacer??

Possibly, hopefully someone who runs this setup can confirm.

I ran the Falken FK452's in a 255/35/18 size up front with no issues....and a 285/35/18 in the rear....in fact they are still on the car ! Plan on going to 245/35/18 Michelin Super Sports in the spring with 275's in the rear.

Square and love it

I run a square setup with GC coil overs. The added bonus of extra camber (2 degrees) makes it work without spacers and looks and runs great
