235/265 installed on stock width wheels. pics included

I just installed 235/40/18 265/35/18 Nitto NT05's on my Breyton wheels which are the same width as stock. I know most people go against putting this wide of a tire on 7.5F and 8.5R wheels but they really don't bulge out much at all. Nittos run a little narrow as well so that helps. Here are some photos for those that are wondering how it looks. The fitment looks great and so far it drives great with no rubbing. I will test them out at an autox event next weekend and a track day at Lime Rock Park next month.

Be interesting to see how you like them autocrossing.

Don't be surprised if you feel like the tires are shimmying back and forth on the wheel and you loose response.

I have not dynoed my car yet, but I am full bolt on jb4 map 5 with an e85/93octane usually at a 30/70% blend. I am assuming over 400whp with my setup right now. Weather is still very cold here in NY, so traction is still an issue, but greatly improved over the continental all seasons I had on the car before. 1st will not hold, but I can almost hook second gear now. I expect 2nd to hook fully once the weather warms up. These are great tires.
