    Well I'm a bit late to the party, but went to install this same (almost see below) setup today and serious rubbing. All I can figure is the Sport 4S tire is much bulkier than the PSS. Going with 10mm spacers for now, and might grind the control arm nub down some, but don't really like that idea. Thoughts?

    VMR V702 19x9.5 et33 install. Only thing i did different was use a 265/35/19 as opposed to the 255/35/19 as it was recommended on another thread as a better fit by the OP, but it turns out that .4" extra width is too much with Sport 4S at least.

    Looking back the 255 had a 10" width that may have fit a better over the 9.5" wide wheel...although as mentioned the 255 was going to be a stretch with the PSS so I heard.

    Lovely setup though, some serious traction.

    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.

    The 265/35/19 is a very bulky tire, even at .3 to .4 inches taller and wider it's a huge difference. With the 10mm spacers it did fit but just looked a bit goofy to me, and the higher sidewalls were a bit soft under cornering. I probably could have got rid of the spacers after grinding down the control arm nub, but still felt it was too much rubber for the car.
