Anyone Running 245/40/18 Up Front?

With a ET40...It might be tight but will it fit? I might just to see for myself but I figure someone here has already tried it and would know for sure!

Thanks

For the ARC-8 wheels that are 18x8.5" ET38 (2mm more outboard), the 245/40/18 tires would work for most street tires, so it should work with your 18x8.5" ET40. If you're looking at an extreme summer tire such as the Hankook RS-3 or Dunlop Star Spec, that may be too close to the strut and you might need a small spacer with the ET40 so that the tires clear the strut tube.
