Because tramlining really doesn't get bad until you're above 300mm, unless your alignment guy sucks.I'm surprised that nobody mentioned that running wide tires up front increases the chances of your car following every crack or defect in the asphalt making it unpleasant to drive...
That's good to know. I am running the same suspension setup and don't have an issue with the 18x8 rubbing with the same size tire.My GN has 18x9 GNX rep wheels on the front. Tires are 255/35R-18. My car does have full Ridetech suspension(coilivers/upper/lower arms) and the front passenger tire will rub very rarely on big dips in the road.
Stock brakes for now. I have the hardware for upgrading to Blazer brakes in the front but haven't done the install yet. My GN definitely needs a brake upgrade.That's good to know. I am running the same suspension setup and don't have an issue with the 18x8 rubbing with the same size tire.
What brakes are you running?
I did have the occasional rubbing issues like that when the car had the 16" GTA wheels, 245 tires and Baer brakes (.400" added to each side of the track width I think). I currently have CPP spindles that use C5-C7 hubs and C6 brakes. I don't know if they changed the track width at all.
