    I am going to a 305/35/20 in the rear. I had planned to add the Steeda sport springs, but I am worried the rear wheels with rub. Anyone have experience with this setup? Also could I just install the front steeda springs and be okay?

    from a lot of brian's vossen wheel pics, the 305 35 20 sure look like they will rub a lot, but according to him it's not rubbing.

    it would look a little better if the tires were not so fatty looking. it just makes the wheels look too small.

    With my 315/35/20 I have no issues with them. I am currently dropped on Eibach Pro-Kit springs, which i believe has the same drop as the Steeda springs so I highly doubt you will have problems with the tire setup you want to run.

    The bigger factor is the fit and offset of the wheels, not the springs.

    Do you know what offset you are running on the rear and what are the specs of your front wheels and tires?

    100% what he says ^^

    On mine, I am running the "oversized" TOYO R888 315/30 20 on our upcoming FF15 wheels (rear) 20x11 et55. No issues what so ever. So in a nut shell, you will easily be able to run a 305 if the width and offset are right. 1 (5).JPG

    Thanks, guys. I will be running the 20x10.5 (rear) HRE FF01. I don't know about the offset. I ordered them from Dan at Hypermotive.

    Wise choice! :thumbsup:

    You will not have a problem with a 305 tire on our FF01 20x10.5 et45. Take a look at Brian from Vossen's car as his rear wheel is the same width and offset as our FF01 (20x10.5 et45) and he is fitting a 315 with no issues.

    You're dialed.

    So there's a guy from Vossen and a guy from HRE agreeing and giving props to each other in a car forum. Something's not right here. Shouldn't you guys be arguing and stealing each other's business? Seriously I need somebody to insult somebody's mother up in here. :lol:
