I know that. My Ftfy was for typing oil tennis instead of temps. I bolded it per the rules of the forum.270 -280 is pretty common in Florida and hotter areas tracking with a tune. Some are seeing that with stock tune too. Follow the track threads and you'll see plenty of people hitting those temps.
Stagger is happening, mostly out of necessity.
I had ordered a new set of 245s a few weeks ago, and TR called me this morning to say they wouldn't be able to fill it. Yokohama had committed to deliver 99 245s to TR, and last minute they re-committed to... 12. So my order basically got cut. TR had 3 255s left and 6 235s left in stock, so here we are with a 255/235 set.
Falken RT660’s?I got my pair of 265s mounted, still Falkens.
This is the front and rear fitment on 18x9 +45, both have a 5mm spacer. I had a little rubbing in the front when I crashed over some speedbumps in my neighborhood. My front fenders haven't been rolled at all. The clearance to the strut in the front is very tight with the 5mm. A 3mm might get it done but I'm not sure, it's that close. In the back, it pokes a bit but I didn't have any rubbing. My ride height is about 13 3/8" from wheel center to fender on both ends.
Overall, I'd say 265 square can be done at my ride height with the front fenders rolled. I'll be using 265 front 255 rear this weekend.

17s, so max I can get is a 255. I'd be chasing a 265 if I didn't want to run the yoks, but they need a bit more rim than others.18s or 17s?
I still haven't made a decision, and the tire availability issue is a huge hassle. 18's allow a 265/235 split, and I'm thinking the 265 might be worth it to get more rubber under the heavy front end doing all the work. That's one place we (GTIs) can do better than the Audi.
