Thx guys at Discount Tire showed its the narrowest tire allowed on 10.5" wheel.
Primary concern is will ET27 on 10.5" wheel will fit since LCI factory offset is 8mm
diff from non lci fitment on rears. Roads around here are the worst around so running might be an issue. Wheels ordered about an hour ago so will see once they arrive.

They will fit fine I ran a 11.5 with a very aggressive et and had a 285/30 tire on it, only needed 2 camber in the rear. Fenders were cut and shaved just a FYI

You can run those with a 255 and be fine.

pre-lci has more space for lower offset. I think it will work but I would probably get 30 profile tires for the rear.
