Yep and thats why I specifically stated the Star Specs. I think when I measured my 245/40 RS3's vs. the Z1 Star Specs in the same size, the RS3's were right at 1/4" narrower per tire than the Star Specs mounted on a 17x9 wheel. I'd imagine similar size differences existed between the larger sizes as well. And my thinking of a 265 being a little too fat might also just be a biased observation seeing as I am used to a slight stretch of 245's on 17x9's.

I might not even have an option of 265 if I stick with Dunlops... I'll have to wait and see when they are released.
Lol I know. Hence the wink face! But yea I think I remember seeing that expected sizes chart for the Z2 and no 265 under the 17" category.
