    You should have a special tool to remove the cap...

    I would check in your tool area under trunk base, as your shop may well have put it in there. It looks like this, and fits over the caps with the same 17mm nut head that will loosen the wheel.

    I have the Brembo's and no rubbing? However 5mm spacers at the front might not be a terrible change to make, but be aware it might make the car a little more prone to oversteer.

    Yes, I think around -2? camber will both sort the rubbing out and help to even out the tire wear, mine are worn right down on the outside after just 3k miles at -1.2?

    I am sure you can use the 255/35/20 f - 285/30/20 r combination with no problem, but if you can't get the 295/30/20 from Michelin then maybe try the Pirelli's, I have been happy with them.
