Yeah, I'm at 255/35 in the front, but don't use this as a great reference point.

I have the ER widebody kit on my car and can fit up to 285/30-18 on the front now, I just don't have the correct offset wheels to do so. Ideally, without modifying the body you can fit 255/35-18's on the front without m3 control arms (hd bushings ok) and you can get 285's in the back with no fit issues.

IC. I like the wide body kit. Was considering it but wasn't sure about the rear not matching the vendors 100%. Would love to see more pics

At the end, all work out, anything rubbed?
Did you need to roll fenders?

Clearance inside:


To Outside... I can't get a good image because it's very tight.


Rubber!


Conclusion:
They work, but I haven't maxed out the suspension or pulled the springs to check clearance all the way up. If there's going to be any issue, it's going to be on the outside, which can most likely be remedied with a fender roll. To keep the clearances where they're at, I'm going to replace the links with M3 variants so that there's no bushing play and check clearances while the suspension is apart in the next few weeks.

So far... slam dunk! And they ride soooo much better than the PSS's
