Not if the offset isn't too aggresive, than 275/30 should fit fine.

Looks good Jay! I was afraid the 265s would look stretched on the 10" wide rim, but looks JUST RIGHT! Nice

Thanks. TR recommends 225 and 255. I stepped up a size to avoid the stretched look. I've run 225s on an 8.5" before and didn't like the look.

18 inch Style 260 Hyper Black M3 reps
Square setup 8.5 et40 235/40/18 no spacers, stock suspension

I have since put 5mm spacer in the front and 20mm in the rear.

Ride quality compared to stock 17inch RFT's, is like night and day. Acually feels like a luxury car now!

Sorry the car is filthy but you'll get the idea of what the spacers did. Same set up as above 18x8.5 et 40 on all four wheels, 235/40 tires on the front and back. Front has 5mm spacer, back has 20mm spacer.

I've got several others. PM me with your e-mail and I'll send them along. If there's something special you want let me know. All I have is a digital point-n-shoot but taking pics is easy as long as it isn't raining. Not much sunshine these days where I live.
