    Tried to search but couldn't find if anyone swapped with another p85+ or P85D owner to make a square 21x9 setup so tired can be rotated. Any rubbing issues if running 265/35/21 tire up front?

    Thanks

    Presumably you have a reason for wanting to square it up with 9" rims, rather than 8.5"?

    I squared up with 21x8.5s all around. I asked around quite a bit and 9" rims on the front is "unsupported"/use at your own risk kind of deal.

    I like the idea of a wider rim and tire to reduce the gender gap width.
