I have same wheel setup and drive with mdm and GC camber plates on stock suspension -2.5 f and -1.8-9 r.

I tried running 275/35 with 295/30 rear and mdm was too intrusive. (toyo r888r)

I then bought 265/35 with 295/30 nankangs and car liked it much more.

No spacers.

You need to know however that 295s all around means tc off as even mdm will stop you a lot and increase pad/disc wear and temps on track.

For your setup, suspension dependent you'd probably need camber as well.

One thing to note however, is if you are running stock suspension the car sits waaay to high especially in the rear and i feel weight transfer in turns, much more than with the 19s.

Im planning on going for mphas kit as dont want to go with kw cs or equivalent due to street driving but not sure on what spacers to run.

I run these 295x30x18 square, but on different offset rims (18x10.5x40) with 20mm front spacers. Handles very neutral and is fast, but I'm setup for this combination as well.

I don't run TC at all, so couldn't tell you what it would do.

I was negotiating with a local guy who had a set of 18x10 SM10s running ar1 295 square with spacers on an m4 and he said he prefers the ar1 setup vs nt01.

He mentioned great neutral handling and was very happy with the setup.
He ended up selling it to on of his friends so I never got my hands on them.
