    I ended up swapping back to the 255/35/19. Michelin has a no questions 60 day exchange policy which was very quick and easy.

    Stiff center dif?

    Thanks for the confirmation. My car must sit just low enough to rub due to the Koni yellow struts. I measured the new 4S and it's actually exactly to spec, 10.4 inches wide. I think once I grind the...

    So how much does one grind that nub off the front upper control arm?

    Also interesting, looking at the PSS 255/35/19 that MrDave posted photos of on a 9.5 wide rim, those are really stretched. The...
