Default 255/40/17 Nitto NT05 on stock BBS w/ RCE yellows

So, i know i had a pain in the ass time finding an actuall definitive example of whether these would fit my car on RCE yellows, and well...they do
So for future reference, this sizing should fit with rce yellow spring while using the stock bbs wheels, it is tight, and honestly i wouldn't expect anything much larger to fit, i think a wide running 255/40 would barely fit without fender modification
So far only rubbing is from my screwed up driver side front fender liner, and at that point its only under full lock, all else appears fine, we'll see if weight in the back will make it rub or not, but haven't been able to make it rub yet, and i tried
