Yazel - I'm running 265 Federal RSR's on my 18x8.5's and they seem to fit fine. Star specs do run wide tho...
I went from a 255/40 Star Spec to a 245/40, leaving all else he same, and was pleasantly surprised at how noticeably better turn-in felt and general overall responsiveness. This was on a 17x9 wheel, too. I can't say downsizing made me faster or slower, but I definitely liked the improved feel.
