Anyone running this setup? How much camber? How much pulling and tugging was required? Any issue with tire fitment on the wheels? Any pics?

That's pretty wide for 9.5 - you find a deal for some 285s or something? Most dont even go 275 w/ 9.5" wide, 265 is the common size and it doesnt even partially stretched. I was 9.5" +20 w/ 265s - had -1.5 in the rear and was dropped 2.5". It had 1/4" clearance from the closest part of fender. I had a minor roll in the rear - not rolled completely flat but just a typical roll. 285 is 20mm wider, but it would be like maybe 10mm closer or something around there. Then have to account for offset..

I currently run 265/35/18 on a 9.5 with no roll. I know of a guy on auto x that runs 295's on a 8.5 in wheels so I know it's "possible". Also my friend with an S2k is running 315's on a 10" wheel. I'm considering going bigger than my current 265's b/c more rubber is more grip in auto x and my s2k friend just went to 285 NT01s up front with 315's in the back and the grip is....unreal.

I've seen guys run 285 on 9.5 +20 or +15 for autox. you need lots of rolling and lots of camber.

i'm running 285s on 18x10 +25 this year. maxed out stock camber, shit loads of rolling.

What is the max camber the stock set up can go?

I'm able to get up to -1.7 up front. At the rear -1.5 IIRC. I'll have to get some coilovers before moving to 285's.

^No issues with the rear bumper tab??
Nope, But I am not slammed. I run the height settings that Ohlin recommends for their RT dampers.

I would recommend no more than 275 on a 9.5 for various reasons:

Much lighter than 285 tires in same brand usually.
9.5 is listed as the best size for 275.
275 35 is closest to stock spec to avoid speedo errors.

Good luck!
