Default Re: Tire Size

Technically speaking, from those tires sizes, yes, "30" series tire should be slightly "shorter" in the side wall area than the "40" series. However, this is probably very little and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, tire to tire.

The "Aspect Ratio" of the sidewall of a tire in relation to its width is what the "30" and "40" stand for. Basically, 30% of 205 (mm) is the height of the sidewall of the first size and 40% of 205 (mm) is the height of the second size.

Real life measurements will depend on tire air pressure, temperature, tread type, weight of vehicle, etc.

I think "how much" it rubs is the question. I don't believe you would alleviate the rub issue by going to the "30" series tire. How bout trying maybe wheel spacers?
