    Hi
    Looking to change my wheels to 8 1/2J & 9 1/2J, would it be ok to run 235/35 front & 265/30 rear without any rubbing?
    Is anybody running with these sizes or bigger?

    Cheers Paul

    Yes one of those
    The fronts will be fine, the rears will be dependant on offset, my 9.5 J ET 45s do ground the wheel arches occasionally under load...

    Thanks for that, what if i run standard offset on the rear which i think is 54? i take it you rear offset is 45 which is what the front offset is on a standard car.

    If you run the oem rims with 265s on the rear you'll be fine, the problem is the after market 9.5 J rims all seem to come with ET45.

    If you get the right offset it should be fine. I run 10" with 275s on rear, no rubbing but also depends on tyre brand. e.g. GoodYear F1's rub, Michelin PSS don't.
