I was warned that if the tire flexed enough inside it would begin to wear into the inside of the tire.

I am wondering CAN you even fit 245/40/18's without rubbing inside.

@Qwaktastic can you shed some light on this? I think you said you are running 245/40/18 - is that correct?
Alot of this depends on offset of the wheel and how low you are... also are you rolled/pulled allowing for less camber... Im running 245/35/18 conti extremecontac dw on a 18x9.5 +40 with no issues but I'm rolled all around and slightly pulled... I've heard of people running as large as 265/35 on our cars...
