Last two years I was running on 285 Hoosiers and had no issues with rubbing anywhere. That makes me to expect no issue with this one as well since it is almost as short and a bit narrower as well.

Our first event this passed weekend was canceled due to the bad weather, so it will be few more weeks before I get a chance to try them!

One thing that I still have to solve is to figure out the starting tire pressures for those RS3s...I am thinking to start with 40/36 F/R, but again, that is just my wild guess. If anyone has any experience with RS3s, I would appreciate it.

It looks like STU guys that ran RS3s used 38 as the hot pressure for their setups. That means I would have to go well over 40, so I will probably go to 42 or even 44 for the start in the front and perhaps closer to 40 in the rear...

Fwiw, I ran 40/38 on my RS3's, but that was 245's on a 9.5 inch width.

Interesting that you had to go that high in the rear...

? It's only 2Psi higher than what you wanted to start at.

I would try 36/36 cold 38/38 hot and see what the tires are doing with either chalk on the outer edges or see if it feels too sloppy for your liking. Regardless, a 275 on an 8.5" rim and RS3's none the less will feel a little vague compared to say a 245 ZII. You may FEEL like pressures are too low but you will likely be sacrificing overall grip by going into the 40's hunting for that better feel you will likely get from going up.

STU won't be directly comparable, they have coilovers, camber, 9.5+- rims and 245 tires. You will have to test yourself to find out what works with the pinched RS3 setup. REPORT BACK, we are all interested in what you find works best for you.

When I ran 285 Hoosiers, I had rears at 33 psi while the fronts were over 40 - that is why I was expecting rear pressure to be lower and better suited rim/tire combo.

I will write my impressions of my combo as soon as I get to first even which looks like to be on 19th. But, since these are street tires, I might put them on the car before that event and drive around a bit as long as temps don't dip into 30s any more.

Well, I decided to try new tires on the car and just drving around on them at about 35 psi for all, things seemed just fine. Looks like speedo is showing higher speed due to shorter sidewalls, so I have to find out what is actuall speed that car is doing when it shows 70 mph on the guage. Tomorrow I will have a chance to push things a bit harder on few on-ramps, so I will post update from that as well. Here is how the car looks like with those tires:

So, I tried new tires thanks to two nice days and it was fun! The pressure was lower than it should be for serious cornering (around 35 all around), but grip was improved tremendously! Feel was much more like I was running on Hoosiers than on a street tires, although not that crisp for sure. But, it wasn't decapitating bad either - just slightly softer then I'm used to with Ho Ho's.

I was glad they were not making any noise when pushed, since that is something that gets in the way after running race rubber for this long - kind of feels that you are doing something wrong, even though that is just the way most of the street tires are.

Race day is this Saturday, but things are not looking promising again due to the chance of rain - not much yet, but still in the forecast. And tems are not going to favour these tires as well, so decision will have to be made once I get there. If it stays in low 50s, I will run on RS3s, but if it rains, than I am staying on all season rubber. When I did a fist turn on pretty cold ones without ever being driven on, they pushed right away and surprised me a bit. But, now they are scuffed a bit, so they should be a bit better.

I have install my all seasons back on the car due to winter weather not giving up over here. Here is the same picture as above to compare them, but with stock size tires on stock rims:
