What do you guys think? Deciding if I should go back to 315's. I switched to 305's for a bit more sidewall but with the tire being about 1" taller it rubs if I lower it anymore than the picture.

Car is RWD so rolling diameter doesn't matter.

Thanks!

If it's a show car, 315 looks good but the tire choice is horrible. If you want a quality tire, you need to get the 305.

for street duty the taller tires will survive longer but the 315 looks good

I just removed my almost new Michelin 235/35/19 and 315/25/19 PS2s and replaced them with Bridgestone 235/35/19 and 305/30/19 N1 RE50As. The Bridgestone 305 is substantially wider than the Michelin 315.. My car is RWD/LSD.

ATL97gts will become famous soon enough
How much have you lowered it already? How much more do you plan to go? I have 305's on mine and prefer them over the 315's. I'm at stock ride height and plan to lower it, but am worried about rubbing. Thx. Sorry for threadjacking.. Oh, my vote =305's.

When I get back in a couple days I'll measure how tall the tire is and how high my fender is off the floor. I don't rub at the height I'm at and am at almost full droop on my jrz shocks.
