    it will be close. i'm running 245/45-18 on the front of the wife's car. they are 26.6" tall. yours are going to be an inch wider. you might get a small amount of rubbing on the plastic inner fenderwell.

    the 56mm offset will help. it's the tire width and height that might have it rub on the plastic. it's not a big deal. it'll only do it on sharp almost full lock turns.

    thats the shit i liek to hear!!!! i feel 50% better... i went out to mock up a rim on the front and the asshole that i bought the car from forgot to include the socket for the anti-theft lugnuts!!!!!!!!! (honestly who would steal crome 16inch 5stars even when they were new!!!) so i found that the left rear rim had no lock lugnut on it so i tossed a rim on the rear and lemme tell ya i cant even put my whoel index finger between the rim and the bump stop for the axle.... i took smkin ta's advise and got the grinder out and shaved back the foamy stuff and hit a lil bit of the metal that it bolts too... prolly gained a few mm's....

    remember, unless you jacked it up from the rear end itself, you have the car jacked up with the axle lowered from it's resting position. i didn't grind my bump stop off at all with my 18 x 9.5 C5 wheels.
