Thanks Danny,
I'm trapped with 4.5" front and 5.5" rear rim widths. 185/65 is the widest tire I can put on the front, and even then I'm rubbing the inside wheel well with stops set at 2 turn lock to lock and rim offset pushed out 1", plus full neg camber. 205/65 are max chubby on the rear. Since I have IRS, I don't run much static camber on the rear (camber increases with compression), but I do run some toe in. The camber in the front and toe in on the back seems to leave me looking for tires every 10k miles or so.

I guess I'm lucky. I got 15 to 20K out of mine.
