It looks like my 245/35s rub a tad bit on the outside. It's not audible but I can see a bit a wear on the outside of the tire. It may be only under extreme turning at high speeds.

My guess would be that 265/40s would rub on a lowered V like Obama raises taxes.

I am not lowered (well just a little in the front from the maggie), but I am running 265/40 18's all around.

I would not recommend this tire size in the front if you're lowered or plan on lowering.

My fronts come VERY close when my car is parked and the wheel is turned. I'll take some pics when my camera starts working.
