Some members have reported a slight (small) rubbing or contact with the tire to the body of the car. I only noticed this for the first few hundred km's and did not even think to mention it in my original post. I don't think it effects many cars, since I have only seen three people talk about rubbing (contact issues) with the rear 255's tires to the inner body of the car.
Rubbing = contact

Noted!! Sorry.
When I first look the tires on place I got scared because tyre was really close to the car body and one of the suspension arms.... but this was with car "on air", when I placed the car down all appears to be much more distant.
I went for a ride and made 3 slides to make sure no contact was felt.
I removed again the rear tire and apparently no contact at all.
Dont forget I have an E81 that might be slightly different from E82.
Next week after 400km I will check again and remove the tire again to make sure no marks on the tyre/body work or suspension arm.
