    With those wheels and tires you should have no issues. These are what they look like on my car but they are different widths.

    I can not honestly say, my choice of tire size was based on coming as close as possible to the stock diameter of the factory tires.

    You may rub some. My 295s rubbed with a rear offset of 56mm but that may have been helped with an adj panhard bar because I was lowered. I was referring to the 295s being an issue on you 9.5s because the tires are slightly too wide for the rim. There may be a slight bulge and I'm not sure if a tire place will install them knowing 295s are not meant for 9.5s.

    At the same time I know there are a lot of people running much wider sizes on 9.5s. You should be able to pull it off just fine. I just wouldn't go any wider. Looking forward to seeing them on your car!

    Your tires rubbed because you had to much of an offset on the rims.

    If I was not lowered they would have fit without issue. I know this because there are other people running the same wheels from the same company. I only rubbed on one side and that was the side that really needed the correction of the adj. panhard bar.
