the 255's in the front may have issues with rubbing, depending on the backspacing of the wheel. I would suggest 245's to keep from even having that problem.
As for the 265's they should fit without an issue.

As for the height I would say 55 in the front, and 50 in the rear, as remember when the tire gets wider it also gets taller.

yea, i know the whole thing where the 50 in 245/50/17 is percent of tire width, but i cant translate that into size. however, i have a 90, so i have the older spindles and such which ive heard leave more room for a wider tire. does anyone knowthe backspacing on those wheels? Millie Miglia MM 11^2's?? oh, thanks. -greg
