255/40/17 Square Fitment on LCI?

Title says it all.

Last season summer tires were Bridgestone RE71R 245/40/17 square on Apex ARC-8 9 x 17 ET30. The car's mildly lowered on TCK suspension with -2.6 deg (fr) and -1.8 deg (rear) camber.

Will 255/40/17 fit without rubbing?

Much thanks.

Bolt them up, see how much room you have?

255 rarely fits on the front; even with a 17" rim it's really chancy.

I have 255/35/18 PSS on Apex EC-7.... Fits like a glove. No extra negative camber, stock springs!

Agreed. My tire guys were not sure if 255s would fit on my car, nor was APEX certain. They fit, but if they didn't, I would have just gone down a hair.... That said, with 255s up front, I've got to be unreasonably pushing the car before it wants to under-steer very slightly.

This is NOT a track car, however, so take that for what it's worth.

My E46 was a track car and even with ZSP suspension, it would under-steer at the track, on the street or even in the garage if I looked at it the wrong way...

I looked into this in this thread:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1208029

It didn't touch anything on my et37 8.5" wide wheel, but it was a little tighter than I was comfortable with around the strut. You've got a bit more offset though, it'll probably be okay.
