255-45-18 on an 18x8" rim, 38mm offset if I remember correctly. That's as wide as I would go in the front, it's a pretty tight fit. Like Ed said, 245-45-18 is best as far as size goes, the 255-45-18 is a little taller at 27". Good luck with whatever you decide...
Here is a 245-45-18...No Rub, No issues at all and looks good...Enough said...
Really, with the exception of running MAYBE a 255-45-18 or some 275-40-18 meats in the rears, there really is no better choices for most applications.
SloMo...I have stared at the pics of your car and can't see how those tires are 245-45-18's when the car looks like it has a lift kit, yet it is lowered??? Something just does not add up. Although, from looking at the car I would say you are a candidate for the 255-45-18 IF you are running a 245-45-18 in that pic...
The white car above is only on a 1.5" Eibach kit...So you can understand my confusion???
Ed, how did you roll/trim the fender lips? I don't want to do the baseball bat method, OI'm thinking about just taking a dremmel to it and cutting the problem area off. Do you think it would bother anything to just cut off, instead of cutting slits and bending up? Nice car too
Also, I love how my 27" tires fit, they fill up the wheels wells nicely. I wouldn't recommend them, only because some people have issues, but I took the chance and it worked out great for me.
