    Can I fit 285s in back and 275s in front?

    My car has been lowered 1.5 inches and right now I am running 275s in the back and 245s in the front. The fronts dont rub at all and the backs rubbed just a little so Ill be doing the BFH mod.
    My main concern is whether or not the front tires will rub? Also how much wider will a 285 be over a 275 as far as an inch value?

    I have 275 in front 315 out back and I'm lowered 1.5''. 25. 4mm=1 inch. So 285 will be 10mm bigger (over 3/8 ths of an inch)

    To answer your question I have no experience with bigger tires up front but I'm sure 3/8ths or so won't make a difference?
