    ET50 in the front

    I was swapping the snow tires this morning, and for kicks I put the summer RR on the RF. It fit perfectly, with about a 1/4 to 1/2 clearance between the tire and strut. Photo below shows fender clearance. I was surprised a 255 would fit so well up front.

    I run 255's all around in the summer, and on track. They fit just fine, even with really low offset wheels (+35) and a lowered suspension.

    I always wondered if u had to use a spacer to run the ZHP rears up front. Good to know! My Miro 112’s 18x9.5 ET40 with 265/35-18 barely cleared up front. Now I’m wondering would the APEX 18x9.5 ET43 wheel clear the strut?? I forgot if that 3mm difference would make it.
