    I have TSW Thruxtons with a .40 offset all around. I'm running 245/45/18 on the rear without grinding or rolling the fenders. Fronts a diff. story I tried running the same 245/45/18 up front but the damn thing was stuck on the strut and after being told that doing the front end bushings would free up space to fit. NOT! wont happen with stock struts in place. So I went with a 235/40/18 in the front fit perfect plus it gives it a nice stance having a little more meat in the rear. I'll PM you my photobucket so you can check it out.

    I'm running Enkei KLAMPs. 18" x 8.5" at 5 x 115 bolt pattern with 42mm offset. Running 245/40/18 on them. Only thing I needed was hubcentric rings which I grabbed from Billet Prototypes. I don't rub but I'm planning on rolling the fenders to go wider in the rear.

    you may wanna get the rear fenders rolled or ground down with putting 265's on just to be safe. Those rims will look damn good on an IBM post lots of pics when their on.

    i heard a few people running 265s on the rear that didnt rub at all, so they didnt need to roll them...the 275 is where i guess it starts rubbing...oh, and my car is IBM but i have the tint and gray accents, so went with the hyperblack rims...i'm just hoping she will be as beautiful as i plan...lol

    no you can run a 275 nitto on the rear no rubbing on a stock wheel or aftermarket key is backspacing..
