BBS FI-R tire sizes

For anyone running BBS FI-R's, what tire sizes are you using to avoid rubbing ? I know the wheels have an aggressive offset, and I have seen some M2 owners running stock tire sizes on these wheels, which seems like they would look quite stretched. Any input is appreciated, I posted this in the wheel and tire sub forum, but didn't get much response.

This thread might help.

Thank you. I saw that post previously, and its the only FI-R post I've found so far, and he eventually went to stock tire sizes after trying larger. Looks like if you have a lowered M2 with these wheels, OE tire sizes are the safest option.

Not really, you can go larger, you just have to consider the specs very closely. I don't see any reason why 255/285 can't be used. I mean, you might have to tweak it a bit, but that's part of the fun. Just make sure you're checking the specs because there can be quite a big difference between a 285 Summer, 285 All Season, and 285 Streetable Comp tire.

275/255

Slightly lowered on Ohlins, installer didn't feel comfortable going lower due to potential to rub. I haven't taken it off any jumps or anything, but no rubbing during spirited driving.

I ran this same tire size, 275/255 with M Performance coils when I had the FI-Rs. No rubbing, but it was quite close.

Was the front or rear more of a concern for rubbing?
