255/275 PSS would work, but you will need camber plates up front with around -2 degrees of camber. A thin spacer may be needed for strut tube clearance. I know another member on here has this exact setup. They posted detailed photos in the wheel/tire section.

another popular tire is the Kumho XS as it comes in 245/35/18 and takes less modification to install. camber plates are still needed but less camber is needed. It can also be run square on the 8.5's. But comes in 265/35/18 and 275/35/18 sizes as well for the rear.

For those who don't want to run camber plates, extreme summer tires in 245/40/18 fit up front. That can pair well with 265/35/18's in the rear.
