Default 8inch wide wheel, 255 tires?

Currently - '04 STi with stock suspension setup, but plan to go with STi pinks and Group N strut tops soon.

Can I fit 255 width Toyo T1-Rs on 18x8 Rotas without rubbing or rolling the fenders?

And I know you're going to have 18s, but the width is the main issue.

it depends on the offset, there have been rumors that a +48mm offset is too low for the pinks and 255s.


there is a wide tire talk thread in the motorsports section.
