      I still have my H&R's sitting in the basement. I need to get them on stat! My issue is that with my 235/45's, I'm probably going to have to take the 15 mm H&R spacers off.
      Oh yeah, definitely. At near full compression in the rear with the *15mm spacers ( previously said 20) clearance to the actually metal fender is very minimal (I would estimate 2-3mm). Would likely need to roll fenders.

      Did you remove your rear plastic inner fenders?

      I promise you, there’s no rubbing lol. I just looked today and they are fine. The tire had a lot to do with it. Some tires can be “chunky” vs another in the same exact sizes.

      So glad you mentioned this. Some sidewalls are a little rounded, others are more squared off. Some have lip protecter chonk, some don’t. Even the raised lettering of company logos and any other decorations on the sides of the tires can use up valuable room when clearance is super tight. That’s why it’s vital to include what tire brand and model, specifically, you’re talking about when discussing whether a tire size rubs or doesn’t rub with a given wheel size and suspension setup. Even an older versus newer revision of the “same” tire might fit differently.

      Just installed a set of Yokohama Avid Ascend GTs (235/45R17) on my stock Sadia wheels. I was debating about what to get and decided that since I don't drive like I did when I was younger, Grand Touring tires make more sense than High Performance tires. Also, since I have a set of 18" Midir wheels, if I really get the itch to put some more aggressive tires on, I'll put High Performance Summer rubber on those wheels and keep the Yokohama's as my cool/cold weather tire. I decided against the Vredestein Quatrac because we really don't get enough snow around here and I can remote in and work from home if the roads are bad enough that I can't get to work. No point in paying for the 3 peak mountain snowflake rating if I'll never use it.

      Another factor is that the tires were way cheaper on Walmart.com than Tire Rack, so I saved a bunch of money and got a very highly rated touring tire for the price of a budget high-performance tire. The price today isn't as low as what I paid, but it's still quite a bit cheaper than Tire Rack if anyone else is interested. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Yokohama-...Tire/913042146 $103.26 vs. $134.99

      Honestly, still not worth the extra $400 to get the blizzaks imo.

      Looking beyond tire sizes, just looking at your tires they don't appear to stick out beyond the wheel at all. Probably a function of the smaller sidewall.

      I'm running a 235/40/19 so I guess I was just assuming 0.5" of extra width would cause more rub... But really, that's extra contact patch rather than overall tire width.

      EDIT: so just out of curiosity I looked up the offset of the polestar winter wheel. It's a +53mm offset. So, with my 15mm spacer I'm at +38mm. That would explain it.

      It has a lot to do with the combination of width of the wheel and the width of the tire. The width I’m using on the wheels are 8.5” wide so it actually stretches the sidewall back on the spec of tire I’m using. That allows just enough space to clear the rear wheel liners.
