I'm debating on going square setup on my recently purchased 85D so I can rotate my tires.

Anyone know what's the most aggressive setup I can run wheel width and offset front and rear with rubbing?

The limiting factor is the front. I have read in many posts by different people that 255 wide tires on 9" wheels will rub slightly when turning in reverse. Btw, those examples are for 20" wheels, with 9" 35mm offset.

Agree.

Tsportline has stated that they will soon be offering their very popular, high quality 19" turbines in a 20 X 9" ET 35 version.

So going with 20x9 et 35 front and rear what max tire size should I run?

Based on the referenced thread below, you can run at least a 245/40-20 tire.
You can try out different options with an online configurator: http://www.willtheyfit.com/

Wheels Installed
Front: 20x9 ET28
Rear: 20x10.5 ET28

Tires Installed
Front: 245/40-20
Rear: 275/35-20

I just did a ton of research and ordered custom forged Vossen wheels for my 90D. 21 X 8.5 all four. +35 mm off set. Continental SportContact 5 tires with ContiSilent foam inside for reduced noise. 245/35R21 all four. 8.5 inch wide wheels for a little more wheel lip protection from the tire. Although my wheels are directional, I'll still be able to rotate front to rear.
