will a 335/35/18 fit out back on an FD with correct offset 18x12 CCW's and fender flares?

Wonder why they don't list any 285/30/18's?

285's are a precious commodity in the autoxing world and were all sucked up awhile ago. This was accelerated by the fact that Hoosier has not produced the 285's in the A3S04, yet.

With the right size wheel, a 305 can be run in the rear with just a fender roll.

I'm running 18x10.5's, offset is +43mm. However, I'm running a small spacer in the rear (1/4") since the 305's were rubbing on the inside. On the outside, you'll need to roll the lip completely, and maybe a little bit of a flare to clear. The downside to the 305's is that it is hard to get the car very low without rubbing up in the top of the fenderwell.

on the Hoosier site they are discounting tires even deeper! I paid $180/tire for 335/30/18's... and they are now $75 each!

Limited sizes available.
