Thanks guys...



They are 295's on the rear, 265's front. Stock height.

Thinking of adding some camber since they rub over bumps and higher speed stuff on our terrible Calgary roads.

Amazing car I'm quite jealous! On a side note Suzanne needs to learn how to edit all those reflections and balance lighting. That said, we all know everyone is a professional photographer now a days if they have a DSLR and a watermark lol.

Haha... She says: First time shooting with brand new camera, and learning how to edit in Lightroom as well, would love to hear some tips on how to "balance lighting" outdoors.

I'm not a photographer by any means. However I can say, once the photo editing is down she will be a great car photographer. It's hard with reflections, and outdoor lighting. A lot of it now a days is honestly editing. Great pics either way! I would say hit the forums and ask professional (or semi professional) car photographers as I am neither. I do apologize if it sounded rude =)

295/30 and 265/35 then? Can you clarify please, is it only front rubbing or rear too? I never heard a 295/30 on rear rubs with stock wheels and ride height on the 1M, that's why I am asking.

265/30/19 front, 295/30/19 rear...

the front passenger side rubs a very little at about 4/5 of a turn to the right
the rears rub over bumps (compression bump the worst). but some camber (will try 1.8 or 2 degrees) should fix that.

Everything else is stock

Thanks, good to know these, since yours is among the few cars with everything stock other than the tire sizes. I guess my camber plates will really be useful if and when I dare to go with 275/30 and 295/30. When you have enough miles with them please also post how the car goes now.

Rears look so tempting!

I think it's because the PSS are much fatter than most other tires while being the same size.

btw nice to see some great photos from calgary
