Not likely. I have 18x8.5's with 235/40/18's as my summer setup and it rubs on deep dips and full turns which will be almost completely taken care of once I get the fenders rolled springtime, but a 245 I think is just pushin it. My front wheel is 45 offset as well and without a spacer with 235 tires I was about 2mm from the strut which is quite a bit close, and so I put on a 3mm spacer which sets the edge of the tire right on the inside of the fender, perfect fitment just with some minor rubbing on harsh dips like i said which should be fixed with the rolling, but again, a 245 ud def need atleast a 3mm spacer from the strut which would rub least a bit more and probably still some with a rolling. Theres nothing wrong with a 235/265 setup, just go with that.

I can see it working.

I run a 17x8 et 40 up front with a 245/40 and I clear the inner strut easily.

I do rub the inner fender on deep dips however.

Proof:





And this is the rub

Looking for a square setup for the track and was hoping to get the 245s.

Lets just say ud need one hell of a fender roll/pull and a very stiff suspension setup. Even then, ull prob still rub least a little bit gainst the fender after u put on spacers.

Get camber plates and you should be fine running 245's on a certain wheel offset.

Holy thread bump -- I know

But 235/40 is taller than a 245/35 so are you sure you weren't rubbing due to the excess height? I would think with enough camber, a 245/35 would fit on the fronts assuming a low 40 offset.

Even 1* of camber will help significantly with rubbing in this situation.

What did you end up going with?
I have the same wheels with 225/40/18 Advan Ad08s on the front. I have -2.5degrees of camber and it looks like there's a fair bit of clearance to the guards, not sure about the strut though.

Depends on the offset of the rim, but with a camber kit you could run 245/35 hoosier r6's square. That is what Apex recommended for use with their wheels for a track setup. I've tried 255/35's up front and they rubbed a bit to much on the track even with neg camber. I suppose if you had the fenders rolled you could get away with it.

Also I noticed going to a 35 series up front I had to tighten up the settings on my shocks because there was to much rebound. It felt bouncy by comparison.

I ended up with some forgestar cf5 18x8-45 all around. I have pss 235/40 and 245/35. Also running dinan camber plates and bmwp springs. No rubbing and fast turn-in. Very pleased.
