Looking at how the 265 RT615K sits on a 9" front rim, it appears to be about the same width as the 255 RE71R on my 9" front. If that's the case, then I would be careful if you plan to add the 1M control arms as it was after that where I had lots of rubbing issues. With just max camber plates, good to go.

You can get more accurate measurements from the tire specs of each, based off the wheel it was tested on. These are definitely wider than the 255 Nexen's I was running prior.

Already running M lower arms. Haven't run into major issues on-track. We'll see how it goes with this setup.

Got em mounted today.

Will test drive tomorrow to work and back and then switch back to my street tires. Just on the drive home from the installer, the only thing I noticed was that they are louder...but that doesn't matter to me for the track.

FWIW I'm currently running 265/35/18 RE71R square on 18x9 et42 rims. 3* front and 2* rear with a decent amount of rubbing. It's possible though!

First track day with these went well! Even in the rain for part of it. Very pleased with these tires.
