Anyway, I was on 19x9.5 et45 and 19x10 et38 when I ran them. They were smooth as butter. Then I just put the same 275/40's on the 9.5 fronts before picking up 2 extra 10's. All option worked perfectly, so I really don't know what to tell you.

only thing I can think of (and it's a huge stretch) would be that you're rears were worn down very far while your fronts were new (causing enough of a size difference) or the tires had manufacturing defects of some kind...

I can guarantee that the staggered setup had zero problems with my transfer case. And I doubt there was any real difference between our model years that would relate to this issue (mine was a 2007 3.0si).. All that being said, I do like the 275/40R19's all around much better.
are you on 19x10's now all the way around? would really appreciate some knowledge on the offset to run for no issues.....thanks
