RPF1 with Nitto NT01 fitment question

I am trying to get a track setup going. Does anyone know if 18x8.5 et40 with 245 40 18 will fit on the car with camber adjustment? Will the rims and tires clear the suspension without spacers? Thanks.

You'll more than likely need a 5mm spacer.
I'm running the exact same wheel with a BFG R1 225/40. I need a 5mm spacer due to the diameter of my tire since I'm lowered quite a bit on coil-overs.
I believe the rears may clear without a spacer for you, but they will look really funny due to being tucked in so far.
On the street on running 255/35 and a net et of 33 with no rubbing.

The 225 R1's, I know they seem to run wide. What size is the tire in comparision? 245? Also does it fit square on the 8.5?

I don't know how they compare to a street tire, but yes, they do fit square on the 8.5
