    So I have looked and looked but cant find the answer to this question in this forum.

    Will a 255/35/20 tire fit with 27mm wheel spacers? Or will it hit the fender/quarters?

    Anyone here running 27mm spacers with any larger tire sizes? If so tell me about it.

    I don't remember what size this guy puts on but it might be 27mm. Check it out, haven't rewatched it yet.

    Are u on stock wheel?
    I think it will rub..
    I have +34 offset wheel with 245/35/20 ps4s..
    Stock suspension.. I have little rub..

    If you put 27mm and stock wheel with 255/35..
    It will make it 1mm more poke out then what I have and you have 255.. so you probably need to roll fender

    245/35/20 on stock wheels pretty much eliminated fender gaps. If you go even taller and wider and add spacers, they’ll rub under load and over speed bumps.

    Add spacers (20mm to 22mm) to stock tires or 245/35/20 only if you must.

    What 20 to 22mm spacers fit this car? I tried a smaller set then the 27mm and the lugs hit the back of the rim.

    I might just try a 255/30/20 with the spacers. If I have to roll it I have to roll it. Otherwise its off to a set of TSW Nurburgring... how appropriate. LOL

    I have the same spacers and was looking at getting 35 height tires as well. What does roll the fenders mean?

    If it is a slight rub, sometimes you can bend the inner fender corner in.. and it gives you that little bit more clearance..

    Thats what i do for my +34 offset oz rims with 245/35/20 ps4s..
