    Love this tire already and it's a down pour! I switched from stock all season pzero. The 555 G2 is wayy better grip and it looks amazing.

    275/40/20 front
    295/40/20 rear

    I can confirm the driver side rubs on the inner thin plastic guard. Does NOT rub on the passenger side. See pictures and you'll notice there is more room on passenger side, not sure why. I instantly heard the light rubbing of it when I picked it up and it does it not only when turning. Good news is this piece of plastic guard and is very thin and I plan to trim a few inches off once it dries up outside and I'm able to get under it. Should only take a few minutes and it will be good.
    At first I thought it was going to be rubbing on something more substantial but after feeling the plastic guard it's very thin as I said. You're even able to push it away from the tire, which would prevent the rub, but you would need something to keep it pulled back. So trimming it a few inches should be easy enough.

    Will update again once I get to drive it in dry weather but like i said even in this down pour I noticed the better traction instantly. Love them so far and you can't beat the price... roughly 185$ front, 200$ rear. 2016-04-30 12.59.07.jpg 2016-04-30 12.59.37.jpg 2016-04-30 13.01.40.jpg

    Nice.....I have the 275 on the front as well, but have 555r on the rear with no rubbing and they are wider than the 295. Must be the overall diameter of the tire.

    You do not have to slit the back. Going way back look at this thread on how to easily move the rubber boot over. More problems if you rub the front of the rears.

    How is the handling from the front tires? I may use these once my P Zero Nero fronts are wasted.

    I noticed better handling and road feel right away. Grip is definitely better

    Update-
    Driven only about 50 miles since I've put on the tires. Avg 5-10 miles a day.
    Had my exhaust replaced due to the squeaky valves (fixed it)
    Also had them put on my rear mudflaps.

    All this and 2 smokey burnouts later and I care barely hear the rubbing noise anymore. Infact with the noise of exhaust it's almost completely gone. I ran my finger back there behind the rear driver tire and it almost seems like there is a tad more clearance (not sure if it's in my head or not). I'm not sure if it was obtained when the mudflaps were put on or not. But at any rate I dont feel the need to do anything to remediate that rubbing anymore. I have to listen extremely hard to hear what I 'think' is the rubbing so forget it!

    btw these tires must be REALLY soft, I did a burnout for roughly 5 seconds and there was a pile of rubber haha, I'm glad their cheap!

    Before thought there was enough room with the 305's I was wrong, at the GA Wannagofast after first burn out and run heard this noise and sure enough the drivers inner liner was hitting.

    Just remove the push pin at bottom push liner back a little bit and drill another hole put pin back will give you ample clearance, im running 315 with no rubbing. good luck

    Your Rims are very shiny? Did you have them painted or are they wet?

    I think they were still drying from having applied Eagle1 Keep Clean, helps prevent brake dust build up

    Been a few weeks now and still no rubbing since the first 2-3 days.

    I will definitely keep the idea in mind of moving the push pin up if I go larger tire next time. I'm already itching to go bigger, a good reason to light these current ones up! haha
