Show me Sportcross with 265 and more tire

Hi guys, I plan to buy some new wheels cause I still run with the stock one (on Conti extremecontact DWS) and I really need more rubber in the back I want to run with 265 tire or more in the back and 225-235 front

I try to find picture of this setup on sportcross and I find nothing.

178.5 and 179.5 Work Emotion XD9s with Dunlop Direzza Z1 tires. The result is a very subtle and tasteful look.

For a little more info, sportcross tire clearance is exactly the same as the sedan, I had a sedan first. My rear fenders are rolled with a very slight pull, and the bumper tap is trimmed. I'm running about -1.2* camber in the rear. If you want wide tires, you need a wheel with an offset in the mid to high 40s.

The CR Kai I used to run were 18x9.5 +38 with 265/35/18 kdw2's. I would rub on bumps when I had people in the back. Now I have the 17x9.5 +44 xd9's with 265/40/17 dunlop z1 star specs, and have absolutely no rubbing even when I jack it up by a front corner to test clearance. I have also run 17x9 +45 rpf1s with 275/40/17 Kuhmo ecsta xs(no wider than the 265 star specs) with no rubbing.

Also, keep in mind that not every 265 is created equal, having all three of those tires next to eachother, I think the 265 z1 star spec is the widest, the 275 ecsta xs and 265 kdw2 were about the same size, just a tiny bit smaller than the star spec.

These pics have already been shown, but:

Previous @ ~-3.0* of camber in this pic though

Good to know cause there a good chance I will go for this tire again... this is what I was using on my other car and I love this tire. The square shape of the tire make them even look bigger

Actually that was a mixture of me and berk, I had RPF1's 18x10.5+38 but ran 255/35/18 on the rears - easier tire to fit under those rear fenders... you don't need more, unless you're really putting down some WHP.

Nice parts dont make a nice car, paying to have pros do every little thing and never touching it yourself or driving it does.
