the 401s are 19's right? They do seem to stick out a the rear especially, the 255's are nice and chunky.

The 400s obviously are 1/2" wider with 255s, but you have more offset to play with - ET47.
Yeah, I have the 397's on right now with snow tires, and those tires are tall, it seemed like they'd rub a little...

You mention the ET47 on the 400's helping, does it bring the rim closer to the hub?

I'm not sure I want to spend $200 experimenting..ironically, my concern was actually with the 12mm's up front. Any thoughts on that?
